I decided that I am not looking for Chromebook workshops while I am at ISTE2014. Don’t get me wrong, I am still excited that we are getting Chromebooks for our 3rd & 4th graders, but I do not need a Chromebook specific workshop to use this tool. After all, part of the appeal of Chromebooks is that they are simple to use- If you get Google Drive, you get Chromebooks. It is high time that we move beyond being device specific. First we were all crazy about iPads, now we are all crazy about Chromebooks. It’s not about the hammer, it’s about what you can build. With this philosophy in mind, I am looking for conference sessions that focus on topics such as engaging students in writing, collaborating, global learning, reading-writing and literacy. I have added a bunch of sessions to my planner to learn about what I can do with the Chromebooks we are so lucky to be receiving next year.
