Yesterday CMS delivered 3 carts full of shiny new Chromebooks. They are ready to go now (interested in how we got a 24 hour turnaround? see below) so head over to signup genius to reserve them for your end of the year digital needs!
Note: Ms. Newburger has streamlined a system to make the sharing of our school tech as smooth as possible. Please respect her work by adhering to procedures while the Chromebooks are in your care. Especially note that they are not as rugged as our iPads.
The rest of this post is for those interested in how we keep up the Chromebooks. It's not the prettiest - but it keeps things organized when lots of people share!
Our district configures and manages them for us. Ms. Newburger figured out how to share them efficiently when we check them out to classes. She tapes down the cords so they don't get jumbled indaily checkout. She labels each cord to cut down on confusion and she puts an arrow label to help teachers see when a chromebook is missing .
