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!

It's time to dive into my EdTech toolbox and take inventory of the best web-based resources for K-5 students!

There are a LOT of tools to consider. To make things a little easier, I'm organizing these resources into three categories:

  • Skill-building - tools that will help students develop skills in reading, writing, or math.
  • Learning support - resources that will assist students as they are exploring the activities you assign to them.
  • Creativity tools - tools that allow students to demonstrate and share learning in unique and personal ways.

Did I miss one of your favorite elementary tools or resources? Send me a tweet or drop a comment on this post and let me know what I missed!

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!).

  1. More space for comments in Docs

My guest today is Peter Horner (@PeterGHorner), IT manager for Barton Peveril College in Hampshire, UK.

Over the past six years, Peter has helped move the college to the Google Cloud and transitioned much of the faculty and student from traditional PCs to Chromebooks.

Today, Peter and his team manage more than 1,500 Chromebooks for the college.
