Use a Chromebook effectively
Step 1: use the Chrome browser
The Chrome browser is great for some things -- Gmail, Drive, and other web services. It's terrible at others, so...
Step 2: use Android apps where appropriate
Use Android apps as well -- they fill in the gaps when web apps aren't effective. For anything with a stylus: use Android.
Step 3: use our recommended apps (plus any great ones you find)
We'll keep adding ideas and apps as we experiment with Chromebooks. We hope you'll do the same.
|Purpose||App||Type||Description / Details|
|PDF - read or annotate||Xodo Docs||Android||Xodo allows you to mark up PDFs with your finger or a stylus. It's also great for just reading.|
|PDF - add pages or sign||Dochub.com||Web||Free app that integrates with Google Drive. Some overlap with Xodo annotation features, but this one is great for managing PDF pages.|
|Record on a whiteboard||Explain Everything||Android||Records what you write and say.|
|Schoology||Schoology or Schoology.com||Android or Web||The Android app is quick but the web version is full-featured. Use both.|
