30 Ways to Use Chromebook in Education

I am not really very familiar with Chromebooks but I have one home and am still getting to know its features. However, I have been reading a lot about these min-computers and have also watched some clips from teachers who have successfully employed them in their 1:1 programs with their students. In a recent article I posted here I shared with you an interesting chart comparing iPad 2 with Chromebook from which the latter comes out as more powerful in terms of performance and storage.

To help you learn more about how Chromebooks can be used in education, here is a great slide from  Tom Gierke and Becky Evans that features 30 ways teachers can use Chromebook in education. Check them out below.
