Chromebook Classroom

On Monday Flipped Education hosted a Chromebook Classroom with the EDU team from Google.  Dana Nguyen and Jaime Casap from Google came to wow a room of 120 educators from around the Midwest.

Flipped Education provided a half day of professional development around Google Apps for Education.  The Chromebook, a web browser device, is a new tool that a lot of educators are looking into for student devices in the classroom.  In Edina, we hope to get our first three pilot sets this March if we receive Edina Ed Fund awards.

Here is our event resource page for the Chromebook Classroom.

At this event there was also an interesting presentation of Ericom AccessNow that is being used by Richland School District to access Windows applications and desktops from Chromebooks. This solution also supports Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives enabling students, staff and parents to access resources from any device, including home computers, iPads, etc. through a browser, because no client software is installed.
