Be Connected: Chromebooks – What Are People Using and Why?

May 6 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Free

If your school or district is in the market for new Chromebooks, you’ve likely heard that these popular devices are in hot demand. As a result, there’s a real need to discuss the differences between the latest models, as well as highlight which models are best suited to different use cases. This week’s Be Connected will work to further that conversation by discussing which Chromebook brands/models districts are buying while also offering participants a chance to share their experiences with usability, cost, maintenance, and repair.

Be Connected is a weekly webinar series from the LTC focused on facilitating open discussions about pertinent topics within Illinois’ edtech community. Hosted by the LTC’s Chris Wherley and Eric Muckensturm, each session will focus on a specific topic and provide space for participants to ask and answer questions in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Each week will feature a different core topic and a fresh opportunity to connect with your peers. So, be sure to check the LTC events calendar routinely so that you can join in the discussion and Be Connected!
