Change your site's layout, theme, colors or fonts - Sites Help

While there has not been big changes to Google Sites like we have seen to Google Docs and many of our favorite tools some of the recent updates have made them easier to work with. The updates to site layout make it much easier for students to be consistent with their fonts and colors. 

How many of your favorite tools have been killed off by Google over the years? Most people are still getting over the RIP of Google Reader, I however still miss Google Notebook. How many of these have you used and still miss?

The Epic Battle Between Apple & Google Is All But Over - Who Won? – ReadWrite

Interesting article on the mobile phone war. 

Meet the new Google Maps. Looks like a great map program that customizes its points based off of your selections. As an educator I hope we don’t loose our ability to make custom maps for Language Arts and History projects. One of our favorite activities is to create literature trips using maps to show the events in stories or historical locations. While we can always go back to Google Earth for this, it is not a option for Chromebook users. 

The new Google Maps has not been launched at this time. We shall see what other options we will have with this update.
