In Michigan, 40% of expected educational device purchases in 2014 will be Chromebooks [source]. The same is likely true around the country. As the Chrome platform becomes increasingly common in classroom settings, the need for quality professional development will also increase.
Educator Ryan Bretag and a team of others saw the need for focused PD related the Chrome platform and have launched the Chromebook Institute, a multi-day conference focused entirely on the Chrome ecostystem.
I will be facilitating a 1-day Google Certification Academy during the precon portion of the conference.
Got Chromebooks? Need to get up to speed quickly? You might want to schedule a trip to the greater Chicago area this summer!
