#Try out our awesome Chromebook workflows! We've tested thoroughly this summer and have built a number of methods for getting things done on a Chromebook. Go here for those. In particular, be sure to try out Kami and read up on our workflows that use it.
#Look for other great apps that could support your teaching in the fall. Browse via [https://play.google.com/store?hl=en this link] (you can't install until we authorize new apps). Then tell us what you found [mailto:support-ticket@riverdale.edu?subject=RCS%20Chromebook%20app&request&body=Please%20review%20and%20allow%20the%20following%20Android%20apps:%20(provide%20links%20to%20Play%20Store%20pages) via e-mail] or [https://support.riverdale.edu via Tech Support request].

Science, you say? See whether any of these 10 or these 14 suit you. And finally, everyone should browse the Google Play store -- or just do a Google search for "android app" plus your discipline or course.
