Kathleen Malsbenden

These apps will include "whiteboards" and clickers apps that allow teachers and students to share learning and test knowledge. This session will be fun for both new and experienced iPad users.  Apps to be downloaded and used are Common Core, Educreations, Screen Chomp, and Socrative and NearPod Apps for both teachers and students. Come and enjoy this two-hour long session of sharing and learning.

Chromebook Basics and Beyond
October 28, 2014
4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
CACES
26 Washington Street, Penacook

Kathleen Malsbenden
Retired Educator & Tech Coordinator, Consultant

Level:          All
Grades:       All
Platform:   Chromebooks (iPads are not acceptable for this session.)
Ample time is provided in this two-hour session for participants to learn about the Chromebook and discover ways to use the web based browser Chrome, and the Chrome App Store. Kathy covers the basics of logging in, finding the "controls" (remember, the Chromebook doesn't have a hard drive so where does everything go?), then moves onto exploring the browser features. Next participants experience creating different types of documents (forms, docs, presentations, spreadsheets), sharing them, and then have fun finding educational apps in the App Store. In between these discovery times, everyone has a chance to share ideas for classroom use.

This is the first is a series of Chromebook focused workshops.  Keep checking CACES emails and our website for upcoming workshops later in 2014- 15.
