How to Teach with Chromebooks





“How can I use Chromebooks in my classroom? There must be more than just Google Docs and math games!”


This is a question that I hear a LOT. The Chromebook is an amazing classroom tool, but most teachers are only using a fraction of their potential.

Starting July 15, 2017 I am leading three virtual courses on teaching with Chromebooks. Each course will take place in Google Classroom and features practical tips for using Chromebooks regardless of the grade or subject that you teach.

Each course has a specific audience in mind - from the teacher who has never used a Chromebook to the one who only uses Chromebooks.

The cost for the course is $2.00 + the cost of my book, The Chromebook Classroom (Print is $24.95, digital is $9.97 via Amazon). The $2 course fee ensures that you have some "skin in the game" and will be motivated to participate in the course!

I want to help you teach with Chromebooks this year! Which course is right for you?
