Overall, this toolkit is fantastic! I have two suggestions: 1. Most important... a few of these sessions are 2-3 years old. Google has changed a lot in that time! On those, I feel uncertain that I received the best information. In my opinion and as an example, it's better to say you have 50 sessions on a topic that you know are up-to-date and useful than to say you have 150 sessions but there's 100 older ones. (I apologize for that lengthy, run-on sentence!) 2. When having the live webinars, the facilitator needs to keep in mind that when members are watching it on demand, they don't need to see the great membership deals or a lot about how to navigate the site. The facilitator needs to go to the slide with the back channel info on it and straight into the Q&A. I advocate for SK12 every chance I get! I just want it to be the best it can be! As for this Chromebooks Toolkit, it is a must see with a little updating here and there. When viewing, just check the date below the video!
