Episode 56 Chromebooks Are Awesome?

In this episode:


Mike Vollmert joins Andrew to discuss Chromebooks with fellow Google Certified Teacher Jason Seliskar. Jason recently received a class set of Chromebooks through the DonorsChoose.org and Google partnership. And of course it wouldn’t be a Small School Big Tech episode if we didn’t get off track and start talking about something else, in this case it’s the Common Core. Much fun ensues.
