Over the past 4 months I have been working with TIAA-CREF Financial Services at their Charlotte campus to assist them in looking at possible ways to improve work efficiency and processes, specifically with LEAN and the Huddles created within each department, through technology integration. Throughout this first phase, a needs analysis study was conducted, in-house visits, and meetings with individuals charged with this project to determine what technologies and training were needed and how it relates to business practices already in place.
I have been collaborating with many public and independent schools who are about to take the leap to the cloud and get Chromebooks, from Google, as their 1:1 solution. Below are some articles and blog posts that have been written about Chromebooks and comparing them to iPads or tablets.
Sandlapper Elementary 5th graders and teachers will get the opportunity to see how Chromebooks will impact their learning and teaching this January, as Richland 2 in Columbia, SC begins using Chromebooks within their Google Apps domain. I worked with Sandlapper’s principal, Linda Hall, and their technology specialist to plan two days of specific Google Apps Classroom Integration sessions for the entire faculty and the use of Chromebooks in the classroom as a 1:1 initiative.
