A growing number of districts are turning to Chromebooks as their 1:1 device of choice. They are affordable, and easy to manage on a large scale. But as with apps, conversations around devices should focus on the learning. What learning opportunities do Chromebooks create? In this edWebinar Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School, CT, and Tom Mullaney, Digital Learning Coach at Carroll Middle School, NC, will focus on Chrome features that transform teaching and learning. All K-12 librarians, teachers, and administrators interested in learning more about using Chrome in the classroom and the library are invited to attend.
