Basically, my class gets the Chromebooks for an hour a day, four days a week. Much more than we had access to computers before, but still not a fully digital classroom by any means.
Anyway, I was so excited about the Chromebooks that I decided to order my own. Thank you, Teachers pay Teachers, for allowing me the financial freedom to order a laptop without worrying about the extra cost.
As I find more things to love about the Chromebooks I will definitely be sharing them here. I will also be blogging a lot more. My old laptop was a Windows computer and it didn't get along very well with Blogger. It made everything much harder.
Here is one thing that I am pretty excited about. It is an app through Google Play called Biodigital Human. It was on a list of great apps for the Chromebook, and it caught my eye because we are currently studying the human body.
This will be so fun for my students to explore. I am always looking for fun activities that the kids can do independently. Plus, who knows? Maybe someone will be motivated to become a doctor or scientists because of what they learn using this app... You never know.
Thanks for reading! Please feel free to comment - about anything. It is wonderful to feel connected to others in this very impersonal digital universe.
