    One of the best things (imo) that google did for teachers was develop app inventor. Not only did it provide a great starting point for students to learn programming, but many teachers used it to create apps for their own use (and to share) like ClassTracker http://www.educationtransformation.net/classtracker.html

    It is too bad they decided not to continue with app inventor, but it will be hosted elsewhere and will hopefully continue to be a valuable tool.

    One of the best things Google did for teachers was to promote App Inventor. Not only was it useful to technology teachers as a starting point for teaching students programming, but many teachers used it to create apps for their own use in the classroom (like ClassTracker http://www.educationtransformation.net/classtracker.html) and shared them. It is too bad Google isn’t going to host it anymore, but it will still be available and hopefully remain useful.
