I have some truly excellent news: the 6th grade team is teaching with Chromebooks this year. A Chromebook is a cool laptop computer that runs Google Chrome and lots of web apps. It costs $249 dollars, is all. We are having a 2:1 program with them in 6th grade Humanities class.
Did you know I'm a Humanitites teacher these days? It's pretty cool. So cool, I didn't even mind the Chromebook training as the bizillionth meeting of this workshop week day.
