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!

For more than a decade Alice Keeler has been sharing innovative ideas for teaching with technology.

After exchanging a string of text messages discussing the impact of the viral epidemic on teachers, students, and school districts, Alice and I decided to record this podcast episode to provide teachers with some encouragement and hope during these challenging times.

Here’s the summary of our conversation: remote teaching is NOT online school.

From 2011-2013 I taught online and helped open a fully online school.

It was a really challenging experience.

I learned a LOT during those three years.

Teaching online is very different than teaching in a traditional classroom. Here are five quick tips to help make this transition and smooth as possible. 

  1. Embrace routine and repetition
  2. Encourage connection and discussion
  3. Keep it simple
  4. Slow down...the pacing is different
  5. LIVE lessons are a waste of time

As part of my daily routine, I scan dozens of blogs, visit a handful of Facebook groups and skim through Twitter.

The goal: find the most helpful resources, tools, and articles that I can share with my teacher friends (that’s you!).

Here are my favorite links for April 2020:

  1. All of my remote teaching resources 
  2. Much needed updates to Google Meet 
  3. Auto translation now available for Android
  4. Google Groups is (finally) getting an update 
  5. It’s now a LOT easier to work with images in Docs
  6. New “shortcut” option for Google Drive
  7. “Flatten the curve” Scratch coding project
  8. Choice boards for at-home learning 
  9. Audience reactions in Google Meet
  10. Free virtual epidemiology course from Johns Hopkins
