The Chromebook Infused Classroom

Holly is the first repeat guest on the Shake Up Learning Show. Holly was featured in episode 17, where Kasey and Holly shared their ISTE presentation, The Learning Mixologist, a combination of Holly’s Infused Classroom Framework and Kasey’s Dynamic Learning Framework.

Holly is the author of The Google Infused Classroom, The Microsoft Infused Classroom, and now her new book, The Chromebook Infused Classroom. (I wrote the forward for this awesome new book!)

Going From Analog to Digital

Who is the audience for this book?

This book is for all levels of educators. There are practical ideas for teachers who are new to tech and ways to go deeper for those that are more tech-savvy.

What’s the difference between The Google Infused Classroom and The Chromebook Infused Classroom?

They are entirely different books. The Google Infused Classroom is focused on making thinking visible, and The Chromebook Infused Classroom is focused on the student-centered classroom and things like activating student curiosity. The new book takes you through a series of how to go from great analog activities to powerful digital activities.

Are Chromebooks required for this book?

No. This book is great for any kind of devices–tablets, laptops, Chromebooks, anything!

How will this book help with remote learning?

Holly shares 20 super tools in this book that will help teachers and students with remote teaching and learning. It is broken down, so you have ideas for how teachers can use each tool and how students can use each tool. She also shares practical lesson ideas and the power of student voice. Just hit record! (Also check out this great episode with Chris Nesi, How to Podcast with Students.)

Did you include Hyperdocs in this book?

Yes! Hyperdocs are great supporting all learners and a fantastic strategy for remote learning. Remember, Hyperdocs are more than simply a doc with links. Hyperdocs are a student-facing blended learning lesson that incorporates the 4 C’s, explore, explain, and apply lesson design that allows students to move at their own pace–a blended learning SUPERDOC!
