Transferring Google Site Ownership

It's that time of year when students and staff are leaving the district and they need to take their Google Site with them. It's fairly easy to do! Basically, you want to transfer the ownership of your site to another Google account outside of our domain. Here are the directions straight from Google:
To control who can access your site:
  1. Click More Actions in the upper right corner of the page.
  2. Click Manage Site.
  3. Open the Sharing tab, and enter the email addresses for the people with whom you'd like to share your site.
  4. Choose the level of permissions for each person (Owner, Collaborator, Viewer).
  5. Click invite these people.
Once you transfer ownership to your other account then log into your other account and check to see if the Site is there. If you'd like, you can then remove your Bonny Eagle account from access to the Site.

The site will not appear on the page of your personal account. You will need to navigate to in order to access your Site.

Are you a visual learner? Here is a screencast of how to add your personal account as the owner:

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

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