Chromebooks in Education
Chromebooks are becoming a popular solution for student computing devices. They are low-cost, simple to manage and maintain, and integrate perfectly with Gmail, Google Docs and the other amazing tools that Google provides to schools for free.

If you have, are, or about to get Chromebooks in your school or classroom, join me today to learn more! We will discuss what they are (and are not), how they work, and how you can take advantage of the incredible power these little laptops have. I’ll show you a few must-have and FREE Chromebook web ‘apps’ that have almost as much power and capability as other equivalent expensive Mac/PC desktop/laptop programs. http://sedcclint.com/?p=1238
