Creative Apps on Chromebooks

All Three

Creative Apps on Chromebooks are the result of Google’s collaborative discussions with teachers to curate multipurpose apps that enhance the versatility of Chromebooks. These tools help students articulate what they are learning by turning them into creators of multimedia content, giving them a chance to hone career skills while simultaneously learn curriculum standards.
