Using Google Calendar as an Assignment Notebook

The idea of using Google Calendar as an assignment notebook that teachers can embed on their website was one that I taught to any faculty that asked for website help this fall or attended one of my workshops on it.

If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
