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!

Enrolling and managing Chromebooks through the Google Admin Console is a lot of work!

Fortunately, there are several outstanding tools that make the job of IT departments MUCH easier.

One of my favorites is Chromebook Getter, an essential tool for enrolling, tracking, and managing a fleet of Chromebooks.

This is my interview with Justin Warsitz, the CMO of AdminRemix.
