Today, one of our local counties (one hard hit by this pandemic) announced that they will not be returning to school until February. Many of the others have already said they will start with remote and do a phased-in approach and not necessarily returning fully until November. Most likely returning the learners who need the most adjustment or in-person support and moving down the pipeline.
We were lucky to have devices at home and extra devices from school to support their learning. But as we think about the fall, I am wondering whether or not we should invest in another Chromebook or laptop.
Here are a few deals that I found for touchscreen chromebooks.
