Happy Black Friday, edtech readers. Today we bring you a weekly roundup of articles heavy in Google Apps for Edu news. This includes notes on the latest Google Drive update, as well as recommendations for Google tools for teachers and Google Doc tricks. (Did we mention: Google?!)
We also unearthed an interesting story from Huffington Post Education on a Vancouver school that is using Snapchat to communicate with teens. Interesting case study. Also recommending MindShift's story on parent-teacher communication. Lots of good reads for this fine Friday.
Hope you're still enjoying the leftovers.
