The Chromebook Creativity Project - Jump in.

Since sharing some depressing data on how Chromebooks are being used by over 5,000,000 students in America's schools, great conversations have begun over what do we do about it.

In my post I stated my dismay over the fact no creative sites were listed anywhere in the report. In order to help rectify this, I am beginning this page of links to sites that Chromebook-using learners can use to demonstrate learning in visual ways beyond the traditional typed document.

All of these sites are free and with limited or no apps. Many require no accounts to use and ones that do require accounts often let users use an existing Google Account. Some do have premium features that can be added for a fee.

This is very much an early work in progress and I will be constantly updating with new sites as well as lesson ideas.

Please share additional sites that can be added to this list via this Google Form. The form also gives the option of sharing your own expertise on the app like grade appropriateness, lesson examples of integration, links to student work, and any other insight you would like to share.
