While I think the mention of Cast and ways for additional storage space were good mentions, I predominantly found this webinar to be a sales pitch. If youíre considering what to purchase/why this may be helpful.

If you want to learn about why a chromebook might be a good fit for your school, there is a lot of good information here. If you want to learn how to use a chromebook, i.e. tips, tricks, how-tos, this is not the webinar for you.
Thank you for the information.
Great information!
A lot of info on why to use them .....just not a lot about how to use them
Great information provided from the webinar. I thought it was crazy how it was stated that Chromebooks out-sell apple products. Very interesting.

Helpful information for those who are not familiar with Chromebooks.
This is good information for justifying use in the classroom and discussion of useful tools. Did NOT know there was no need for internet access to use the Chromebook and then link to a file server or shared files.
Very basic, this is really promoting the use of Chromebooks. Not how to use them. If you already made up your mind to get them, this is not for you. If you are on the fence, then this will benefit you and help your decision.

I like that these devices can still be very useful without internet. They seem easy to learn and easy to use.
