Chromebook Camp


Three amazing teachers set out for three days of intense learning. We had no idea what to expect!!

Here are some quick things we learned!

Advance Search

  • Type in general google search topic. After your search options show up, click on the gear to select “advanced search” to modify your options.

Research within Google Docs

  • Research within a doc. Open a doc. Select the “Tools” menu. Select “Research”. A search window will appear.
  • Search topic - Chocolate. Click on “Preview” to see site. Click on “cite” to cite sources. You can click “insert link” to create a link onto the doc.
  • Search images appear at the top and the pic can be inserted. Picture source is cited on the bottom.

Open and EDIT a PDF in your Drive

  • Locate a PDF in your drive. Select PDF by clicking on it. DO NOT OPEN IT!!
  • Use two fingers (rabbit touch) on the trackpad to right click. Open with Google Docs.
  • The PDF will open and you will see the original at the top. Scroll down and find the text that you can edit.
