Do you have Chromebooks? These handy devices can do so many things in the classroom. Intel has put together a community for Chromebook users at intel.com/ChromeEdu. There are already some powerful resource guides including the Ultimate Resource (by Naomi Harm), Chromebooks 101 (I wrote that one), Using Chromebooks in the Primary Grades (Erin Klein) and 12 Ways Chromebooks Remove Roadblocks to Tech Integration (Lisa Nielsen).
They also have a way you can win a Chromebook posted as well, so you could win one.
Why I Enjoy Using My Chromebook
My Chromebook loads in 7 seconds. I have found that when I'm traveling, I use it for responding to email and drafting Google Docs (mine came preloaded with 22 GoGo In Flight Passes.) It is also handy for this blog and more.
There are some things you should know though, and my 101 post will help you set yours up right the first time. These handy devices have a rapidly developing community of best practice. Getting connected will be an essential step for anyone using or supporting Chromebooks.
Hope you enjoy Intel's ChromebookEDU resource center and community. Let's learn!
