A new version of the Google Apps Directory Sync (GADS) tool built specifically for schools is out! This utility allows an admin to export data from their student information system (SIS) and quickly sync it to their Google Apps for Education domain. With this tool it’s easy to create users, organizational units, and Google Groups, and also to keep everything in sync.

The potential for Google Glass in education is just too great. Once the expensive pair of glasses actually makes it into the hands of a teacher, the typical lecture will become something totally different. In fact, much of the education process will be flipped as students will be able to view the world through the lens of a teacher (literally) and get a new perspective on learning.
