Geeky Fun at Google Headquarters

Google Reboot Andrew Lucie
What I great day I had meeting and reconnecting new friends at Google Headquarters NYC for the GCT Reboot 2013.  The passion in the room was amazing – and it wasn't about Google Koolaid – it was about opportunities for teaching and learning made possible by Google Tools.  

I had the privilege of facilitating the discussion on Scripting during a breakout session

  The size of the group doubled as  +Andrew Stillman  walked in and joined us.  

 

Andrews has created some amazing scripts  used by educators daily, including  Autocrat , and Doctopus and most recently version 2 of gClass folders.  

The  conversation ranged from  using appscript to improve workflows in education, to using it with students to meet new standards such as Next Generation Science Standards to Common Core, to using it to fuel the Maker spirit  or  Open Source  community feel.  It was way too short of a discussion time  for such  a high interest topic, but  the conversation is far from over and I’m sure we will see more and more interest on this topic.  A great place to start is  The AppsSCript for Educationa Builders and Users Group.
