Thinking about starting a 1:1 Chromebook program?
Concerned that your teachers aren’t using your Chromebooks to their full potential? I can help!
I have been deeply involved in the use of Chromebooks in K-12 classrooms since 2011. During that time I have trained thousands of teachers and assisted dozens of school districts in deploying Chromebooks to students.
In 2016 I published The Chromebook Classroom, the best selling guide to the use of Chromebooks in the K-12 classroom. This comprehensive guide details the features, management, and use of Chromebooks in the classroom.
I can support your Chromebook rollout in three ways:
- In-person Chromebook training
- Online courses for teachers
- Technical training and deployment support
Chromebook Training for Teachers
Most teachers are unaware of how many cool things they can do with a Chromebook! My hands-on workshops highlight the hidden features and top tools for teaching in a Chromebook classroom.
Each of my workshops provide time for teachers to experience and explore the instructional potential of the Chromebook.
Sample Chromebook Workshops:
Here are some of my most popular Chromebook workshops. Remember, each workshop is fully customizable based on the needs of your staff.
- Teach with Chrome
- Developing your Elementary Chromebook Classroom
- Creating Multimedia Projects with Students
- The 3Ds (a framework for using technology in the classroom

Teach with Chrome – an online course for teachers
If a face-to-face workshop won’t fit into your calendar, consider my online course – Teach with Chrome!
Teach with Chrome is delivered through Google Classroom and feature short videos to help teachers learn more about teaching with Chromebooks.
I personally facilitate each online course, providing feedback, answering questions, and engaging in the course discussions.
Each teacher will receive a copy of my book, The Chromebook Classroom to use as a resource during the course.
“This was great – it was a nice way to utilize online learning but still have your book as a resource. There were great tips and tricks for those just starting with Chromebooks or for the experienced user.” Liza Basden, Highland, IL
“This was a great course for learning what you can do with a Chromebook. I liked how it was interactive but wasn’t cumbersome with the amount of work that was required. Thanks for your feedback on assignments!” Kelly Wilson
“This course has shown me so many new ways that I can use our Chromebooks! It also showed me a lot about apps that I have used, but in new and different ways! I would definitely recommend this course to others who are new or not that familiar with Chromebooks. It has definitely changed my mind on what they are capable of providing for myself and my students.” Rose Marie Warrell, Oakley, ID
- Length: 5 weeks (approximately 1 hour of study per week)
- Course qualifies for 5 continuing education credits
