Delete Your Google Classroom Calendars

I use Google Classroom… a lot. Every time I create a Google Classroom it creates a Calendar in Google Calendar. It’s a mess. I can not think of any reason to have a Google Calendar for a Google Classroom I am no longer using. (To be honest, I do not use the Google Classroom Google Calendar anyway. I know it works great for some folks but not for me.) This morning I did a little coding and discovered I had 165 Google Calendar calendars generated from Google Classroom. There is no way I have enough patience to manually delete 165 calendars, so this is where knowing Google Apps Script saves the day!"

Andrew Stillman critique of NY Times Google in Education

The Times’ Reporting on Google in Education: A False Choice for a Straw Man

Guest Blog Post by Andrew Stillman

Maybe because of their universality and power in shaping our lives, K-12 schooling and large tech providers like Google have at least one thing in common: they are both a honey pot for poorly-informed and strongly held public opinion.

In this light, I was disappointed that the NYTimes recently missed an opportunity to offer its readers the factually-informed and nuanced discussion we need around how privacy norms, schools, tools, and student learning models are co-evolving as ubiquitous, “free” web and mobile technologies like Search, Gmail, Docs and “the cloud” gain a permanent foothold in our lives and our classrooms."

Google using AI to turn Street View images into professional-quality photos

posted Jul 19, 2017, 1:45 PM by Skip Zalneraitis

"Google Street View is great for exploring an area from the comfort of your sofa, but if you want some more inspirational images to see how great a place can look, you probably seek out some better-quality photos. You may not have to do that for long thanks to a machine-learning project Google is running.

Google fed an experimental deep learning system a supply of professional photos from which to learn, then had it try its hand at emulating these from a set of around 40,000 plain old Street View snaps …"
