187 - The SXSWedu Episode



Dan takes the lead on this week’s show. Kim is in Austin, Texas for SXSWedu and gives a repost on what trends she sees coming out during this year’s conference. It’s time to enter the Google Science Fair. We say hello to a new way to save Google Docs and new templates available in Docs, Sheets and Slides and we say goodbye to Picasa. Google Search can be used to follow the election and search for animal sounds. Coincidence? We let you decide. Teaching coding resources, Chromebook tips, YouTube editing and more all on this week’s show.
