As a teacher, I don't always have access to the school's phone to contact parents. I don't want to use my personal number to give it to students or parents. A great solution is #GoogleVoice and #GoogleHangouts. With Google Voice, you will get a phone number that is associated with your number. With Google Hangouts, you will get to receive and make calls, and text, using the internet. That's it. If you have questions, post a comment here.

The #PureJetRedGold by #Vertu is an elegantly designed #Android phone. This $22k phone is a designe based of a jet airplane with red gold accents. On my teacher pay, I should be able to afford this by the time I retire...in 25 years if I start saving now $1k a year.

http://goo.gl is Google's URL Shortener service.

A website address, also known as URL (Uniform Resource Locator), tends to be long, especially when linking to academic articles. Click on this short link of a blue-winged pitta: https://goo.gl/0bA3ih
After you click on it, it will show you the full URL.

This is important when asking students, or parents, to visit a webpage. Asking the students to view the blue-winged pitta on their computers using the full URL will be very difficult if the URL is long like the previous example.

How have you used URL Shorteners in school?

Here's an #Android app for classroom management. #ClassDojo has been my wife's favorite for a while now. She teaches Elementary and enjoys the ability of collaborating with the team-teaching approach. One part of teaching is paperwork. One of the best parts of it is the behavior tracker. And, if you decide, parents can keep track of this.

Do you use this?

CHANGES:

First, you will find the new website to be nicely different. Now you can visit: http://www.eduGoogDroid.com ... Good bye old +1s

With the new YouTube channel http://goo.gl/rr4s86 I am adding videos that highlight previously made posts. So, instead of creating new posts, I'm updating the old ones.

For example:
- Google Opinion Rewards: https://goo.gl/7dW9tm
- DonorsChoose/GoogleDotOrg: https://goo.gl/NUCaVW

Finally, watch this video: https://youtu.be/oFdfyYoh75Y

Let me know what you think. How can I improve? Comment here. Thank you.

Need money for class projects? https://goo.gl/gUCN7D

Update: View these videos https://goo.gl/nxeeCm

As teachers we end up spending our own money to pay for class materials. When I did my taxes this year, I was told that I didn't qualify for the "Teacher Tax Credit". It's now back according to http://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc458.html, but you never know for how long.

#GoogleDotOrg has funded my class on #DonorsChoose as shown here: http://goo.gl/fpcKrw
Through DonorsChoose teachers can request equipment for projects. DonorsChoose is a #501c3 (tax deductible non-profit) organization. Thus, asking businesses to help you is a benefit. The best time to ask is during November/December because of #IncomeTax and are also the months of giving.

If you are an #Educator and want to start a DonorsChoose project, first create an account on: http://goo.gl/HZLV3r
Then, create an account on: http://www.donorschoose.org/teachers but make sure you are using the same email as the #Amazon account.
Then, you or your students can create a project. Well, you create the project for your students, but it is student led. #ThinkItUp

Based on last week's post on #GoogleTranslate , I submitted this request: http://goo.gl/i8LHAZ
I realized that a better #Android camera provides better results. So, I asked for, http://goo.gl/Jaotiy which is the #Samsung #GalaxyCamera 2
