60 in 60: Inspiring Apps to Engage and Enrich

This presentation was given by Ray Birks and Aaron Hansen at WAETAG 2012. The focus was how to engage and enrich students and teachers in technology.

Mobile apps, websites and software are included as is a key that lets you know if it is free or a cost, and grade level (K-5, 6-8, 9-12). Most likely you will fine (or perhaps be reminded of) a couple of new tools that you might like to use.

Protecting Students with Google Apps for Education | Privacy

Protecting Students with Google Apps for Education | Privacy | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Posted by Bram Bout, Director, Google for Education 

Today more than 30 million students, teachers and administrators globally rely on Google Apps for Education. Earning and keeping their trust drives our business forward. We know that trust is earned through protecting their privacy and providing the best security measures.

This is why, from day one, we turned off ads by default in Apps for Education services. Last year, we removed ads from Google Search for signed-in K-12 users altogether. So, if you’re a student logging in to your Apps for Education account at school or at home, when you navigate to Google.com, you will not see ads.
