Today I had the chance to hang out in the 4th grade classroom that is using Chromebooks in a 1:1 environment. The assignment for the day was to work in a group to study the different regions of the USA. Tracy, Mrs. Purdy, had six different Google Docs shared, one for each group. The kids sat with their books, looked through websites and filled out the Google Doc collaboratively. It was so much fun to see them work together, face to face, and digitally at the same time.
This work environment really replicates what I do in my adult work life and I'm so thrilled the students are experiencing learning in this way.
