Chromebooks are coming….or maybe they are already here.  Whether your school is 1:1 or you have an army of carts, become the king or queen of your Chromebook kingdom.  This workshop will offer a 4 week opportunity for you to set up best practices with your student Chromebooks while creating unique and engaging learning opportunities.  Each week, we will parallel Chromebook activities to each one of the 4 C’s of learning to create a comprehensive arsenal of interactive activities and learning experiences.  At the end of the workshop, your Chromebook savvy will be on a level to which others will bend a knee.
