Nerd Newsletter at MSD of Steuben County
Below are some training opportunities for teachers at MSD of Steuben County. Since this is the first year for kindergarten through second grade to utilize iPads and for third through fifth grade to use Chromebooks, most of the training opportunities are targeted for beginners. More advanced training will take place after the school year begins.
This course will focus on the very basics of using a Chromebook. For those that are newbies with using a Chromebook or have very limited experience with Chrome OS, this event will help alleviate some stress and improve your workflow with the device.
