Ten things every educator should know about their iPad - some good tips from Mark Anderson! @ICTEvangelist Thank you +Vicki Davis  http://ictevangelist.com/ten-things-every-educator-should-know-about-their-ipad/?utm_content=bufferba9eb&utm_medium=social&utm_source=plus.google.com&utm_campaign=buffer

What if?
Managing Your Extensions in Chrome - Those great little productivity tools take up a little space across the top of your window. Check out my short video with a few quick ways to manage those. Feel free to share with students. https://youtu.be/v5HnuDw5T1A +Google for Education +Google Chrome 

Something to think about…
Traffic Lighting - A nice idea, from Aaron Svoboda and +Synergyse, on how to use Google apps for Formative Assessment...not just for the teacher, but making this process more open for teachers and students alike. By using the free Highlight Tool (different from the one from TextHelp), see how the Traffic Lighting technique can be helpful for individuals, teachers to students, student to student and student to teacher. Take time to take a look at this, if you haven’t already, and see if it would work in your classroom. https://www.synergyse.com/blog/formative-assessment-traffic-lighting/
