Apple Professional Development Interest Gauge 2014-15

As we start off another school year with the 1:1 MLTI deployment, I am trying to take better advantage of the complimentary professional development that Apple can provide to us on site. I would like to get the dates set as soon as possible so we can ensure that the trainers are available at a time that works best for us. Before I do so, it is important for me to gauge everyone's interest in the topics that they offer so that the sessions are relevant for us and our needs. If you wouldn't mind helping me with that by filling out the following Google Form at your earliest convenience, I would really appreciate it!

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. You will need to be signed in to your MSAD #6 google account in order to fill it out and I am collecting your username so that I can contact you directly if we host any of the sessions you expressed interest in.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos .

When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
