The Chromebooks in Education course was great! This was my first time using a Chromebook, so I liked that the course started out with basic keyboard shortcuts, but ended with different ways we can use them in the classroom. This course was very practical and helpful for developing my pedagogy on technology in the classroom.E.K.
