I am blessed to work in a district that provides 1:1 Chromebooks for primary students. I was pretty nervous at first. I'm an Apple girl all the way and that was definitely my comfort zone. I have slowly become a Google Gal though. My learning curve is steep but I am making progress. I decided to give Google Classroom a whirl. There isn't a ton of resources available for Google Classroom and primary students so I'm pretty much figuring this out as I go. For my first assignment, I had the kiddos join our Classroom, add it to their bookmark bar and watch a YouTube video on bats. That was enough for a first lesson and they did great!!! I was so shocked and nervous that I forgot to snap some photos. Trust me it was so awesome to watch all those little faces actively learning with technology.
