Chromebook Workshop: From Basics to Classroom Use for Student Engagement

Whether you're a novice or an expert Chromebook user, if you have Chromebooks in your school district, you're going to need to know how to use them and how to help others to use them. That includes fellow educators and your students. Hopefully the resources on this TES Teach Blendspace can be a helpful reference point for you as you become more familiar with your Chromebook.

Row 2 contains resources for integrating Chromebooks into your classroom - engaging students, classroom uses, Chrome apps and extensions.

Row 3 includes instructions specific to Plano ISD educators, but non-PISD people may still find them helpful! :)
