How to Chromebook!

What is a Chromebook?:

Chromebooks are like laptops, however they are not Windows or iOS operated systems. Instead, they operate using Chrome OS. Like a Windows laptop you can use your Chromebook for just about all of your online school work or teaching needs: reading approved websites, checking your school email, or utilizing school approved and downloaded apps.

Chromebooks run web applications instead of software programs. So instead of using File Explorer, Windows Microsoft Office Word, Excel, Powerpoint, ect., your Chromebook runs Google web apps such as Files and Google Drive which houses Docs, Sheets, Slides, ect.

What you have in front of you is a computer; it is not a toy, a source of entertainment, a paperweight, or a door stopper. Maintain it and keep it up-to-date and it will work like a champ! The information presented on these pages are just simple informative tid-bits about your Chromebook and how to use it for either school work or teaching.
