    We are going 1:1 with chromebooks in 2016 in St. Charles, where I teach. All of our teachers received a chromebook this year to give us a year with the same tech that the students will be getting, so that we can get acquainted better. I’m looking forward to GoogleFest so that I can learn new things and come back to share with my colleagues during our PD time.
