The Benefits of Google Chromebooks and Apps for Education

The right combination of technology, content and professional development can increase student engagement, equip them with 21st century technology skills and enhance creativity, critical thinking, communication and problem solving. Creating this combination can be challenging, however, regardless of the size of the district.

Attend this web seminar to learn how administrators at Richland School District Two (S.C.) successfully built and launched a 1TWO1 computing initiative using Google Chromebooks and Apps for Education for their 26,000 students across 36 schools, combining technology, content and professional development in a way that not only changed the figurative learning environment, but changed the physical setup of the classroom. 

Topics will include:

  • The unique benefits and features of Google Chromebooks for Education
  • How Google Chromebooks, Apps for Education, and other web tools can be used to improve student learning, collaboration, and innovation
