1:1 with Chromebooks
My 3rd Grade class received a Donors Choose Grant in cooperation with Samsung for 30 Chromebooks. I looped with my class and it’s our 2nd year with 1:1. Both the students and I have learned so many amazing things during the past 2 years. I will share some successes and failures we’ve experienced along the way. This journey is not over. It’s only just begun. Stay tuned for more innovative ways a 1:1 Chromebook classroom can motivate students to reach their potential everyday.
Ways that we use Chromebooks in our class include:
Taking Lunch Count in an Edmodo Poll
Daily Smart Start
Drive-writing, presentations, drawing
Extensions: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Screenshots, spellcheck, read clearly, etc.
And many more…
NEW -I plan on initiating collaborative cross-age tutoring for writing. What a better motivator than peers to get kids writing with a purpose.
The following is a great Presentation by +Tom Gierke and +Becky Evans for those looking at implementing 1:1 Chromebooks with GAFE. (Google Apps for Education).
