PowerDirector (Finally) Brings Decent Video Editing to Android | ChromEd | Scoop.it
Android: Let's be honest. The list of robust video editors on Android has been meager to non-existent for a while. You can do okay casual stuff with Vine or Instagram, but getting serious work done has been reserved for other platforms.
Jonathan Jarc's insight:

On iOS there's iMovie and a plethora of other options. Good to know my friends in the Android world can join the video editing party!

HEADLINE: Google Education launches Google Educator Groups ~ Edukwest

HEADLINE: Google Education launches Google Educator Groups ~ Edukwest | ChromEd | Scoop.it

by Kay Alexander

 

"Google Education announced another service targeting teachers across the globe. Google Educator Groups (GEG) is a program that wants to support communities of educators, online as well as offline and aiming to help teachers to learn, share, and inspire each other to meet the needs of their students through technology solutions, both in the classroom and beyond.

 

Key Takeaway

"Google Educator Groups are essentially personal learning networks (PLN) that use Google+ as its backbone. The local GEGs are organized by volunteers and entirely independent from Google.

 

"At launch there are 51 GEGs across the world with USA, Romania and the Czech Republic having the most local groups established. GEGs offer different activities to learn and share with like minded educators. Teachers connect online via discussions and Hangouts or in the real world through meetups, workshops and other events."
