Chrome book PD?

We have an opportunity to apply for a grant for a classroom set of chrome books.

I teach middle school ELA FWIW.

Part of the grant asks about professional development related to chrome books.

I believe there is a free google classroom certification?

Does anyone know of any other PD to take or look into?

In my limited work with Google classroom and Google docs, I have found it easy to pick up, but I cannot write that in a grant application.

I agree that it's pretty easy, but you can become a Google certified teacher (they have online courses and such). I know there's a cost....but I can't remember what it is because I decided I didn't need to pay to learn (you can take the classes and just not take the tests).

The level 1 test is $10. The level 2 is $25.

It took 3-4 hours to prepare and about 2.5 hours to take the test.

I am signed up to take a Google Conference in March. There might be something like that in your area.

John R. Sowash - The Chromebook Classroom

He has also written a book with the same title available in both hard copy and e-book format.

I would not waste the money on the book.

I had to do one of the pd sessions a while back. It was good information but mostly a waste of time/money for anyone that is the least bit computer savvy.
