Introduction to Chromebooks

IWBAT explain the procedures and expectations when using Chromebooks in class.

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. Play this parts of speech game until we put computers away.
