8th Grade Computer Essential Project

Driving Question: How can we increase the efficiency of our education through the use of Chromebooks?

Overview

Students will research the most common technology problems experienced by students and teachers at WHS dealing with Google Chromebooks. Students will research and compile fixes for the issues. Finally 2 student groups will work to create an App that has the fixes listed in an FAQ (Frequently Ask Questions) format.

Entry Event

Our entry event was when Mr. Bates came from the Talladega Board of Education. He talked to us about problems with the Chromebooks, and how they affect workers at the Talladega Board of Education.
