The Chromebook Creativity Project - Jump in

The Chromebook Creativity Project – Jump In

Since sharing some depressing data on how Chromebooks are being used by over 5,000,000 students in America’s schools, great conversations have begun over what do we do about it.

In my post I stated my dismay over the fact no creative sites were listed anywhere in the report. In order to help rectify this, I am beginning this page of links to sites that Chromebook-using learners can use to demonstrate learning in visual ways beyond the traditional typed document.

All of these sites are free and with limited or no apps. Many require no accounts to use and ones that do require accounts often let users use an existing Google Account. Some do have premium features that can be added for a fee.

How To Take A Screenshot On A Chromebook

Chromebooks and other devices that run Chrome OS are great if you want a simple and cost-effective machine for accessing the web. Google’s browser-for-everything approach can cause some confusion, however, especially for general functions like taking a screenshot in Windows or doing the same on MacOS. While Chromebooks don’t include a “Print screen” key, learning how to take a screenshot on a Chromebook is actually fairly simple — whether you need to grab the entire screen or just a portion.

My Favorite Screencasting Tool Now Works on Chromebooks

My Favorite Screencasting Tool Now Works on Chromebooks

Screencast-o-Matic has been my favorite screencasting tool for years. I use it on my Windows and Mac computers to create almost all of the videos that you see on my YouTube channel. The one knock against Screencast-o-Matic has always been that it wouldn’t work on Chromebooks. That has changed. Last fall Screencast-o-Matic launched a beta product that worked on Chromebooks. And yesterday that product left beta and is available to anyone who wants to use it.
