What a lot of useful information! I am anxious to go back and spend additional time experimenting with the many ideas.A.P., Special Education Teacher
This was a great chromebook class. I learned how to use so many programs. I like the fact that the chromebook opens in 8 seconds and saves everything. I also like how it is constantly updating. It made me want to flip my classroom tomorrow. I liked Edpuzzle, Kahoot it , Padlet, Google classroom, ClassDojo, and so much more. I like the fact that it had a chromebook store also. The shortcuts were great to use.C.H., Elementary Teacher
