The Chromebook Classroom Podcast

If you want to use Chromebooks to improve teaching and learning, this is the show for you! I interview teachers and district leaders who are using Chromebooks in creative and inspiring ways, answer your Chromebook questions, and share the best tools and resources for teaching with Chromebooks. Chromebooks are an amazing tool for the classroom, but using them well does require some thought and planning. I’m glad you are here and can’t wait to help you teach with Chrome!

When Chromebooks first became a thing back in 2013, the web was very different.

Chrome Apps allowed developers to create an app-like experience for Chromebook users, something websites simply couldn't do at the time. 

Seven years later, the web has matured and can do pretty much everything that you would want in an app, without the need to develop an actual application.

In January of 2020 Google Announced the plan to official shutdown Chrome Apps starting in 2021. 

Listen to this episode to learn more about the timeline and how this announcement will impact education.
