Google Keep: Share ideas with friends and family - officialandroid.blogspot.com

Sticky notes on refrigerators were once the preferred way to say, “We’re out of bread - could you pick some up?” Now with Google Keep, not only can you jot down ideas or put together shopping lists, you can also share them with friends and family and work on them at the same time.


11 new apps are available for Chromecast today, bringing you family friendly games like Scrabble Blitz, Just Dance Now and Wheel of Fortune as well as great shows from Showtime and Starz.

Create Google+ profiles - support.google.com

Admins for organizations that use Google Apps for Work and Google Apps for Education (not including K-12) can now create public Google+ profiles for their users straight from the admin console.


Great tip for using a Nexus device in the classroom: Place onto locker-shelf with camera facing down (between the slats), put in camera mode, and use as a projector.  Student work is displayed on the T.V.(via Chromecast) as they work on it or show it to the class! Movements show, and processes can be made clear since they are projected live. via +Annette Slone; h/t +Allison Mollica
