Introduction to Chromebooks


Aims: 
1. IWBAT explain the procedures and expectations when using Chromebooks in class.
2. IWBAT type a response paragraph that describes how Jewish prisoners changed while in the Nazi concentration camps.

Key Points:
1. Technology is a tool, not a toy.
2. We use technology tools to help us learn both about English and how to prepare for college and careers.
3. Technology can help us think critically and be creative.


Today's Tasks:

1. Review Mr. T's Chromebook usage agreement. You will need to commit to these procedures and sign the document before you can use a Chromebook for the first time.


2. Watch this video to learn how to properly handle a Chromebook when carrying to or from your desk:

3. When everyone in your table group is reading silently, Mr. T will dismiss your group to retrieve a Chromebook. Be sure to use two hands and follow the procedures you just learned.

4. Visit Mr. T's class website by typing in mrtwarek.blogspot.com in the search bar. To bookmark this website, click the white star on the upper left corner of the window, and then click Done.

5. Track Mr. T as he describes how to make his class website your home screen. Now, when you want to go back to the website, you can just click the little icon that looks like a house (in the upper right corner of the Chrome window).

6. Take this introduction survey.

7. Open Google Drive (also called Google Docs). Create a new document. Make the title of your document "Changing in the Concentration Camps." Then, type your response paragraph from Friday. When you are finished, close your Chromebook and read silently.
