Small computors make a big difference

By Edna Sailor

If you ask Nick Sampsell, fourth grade teacher at Parshall Elementary School, about his students and how they like learning with Chromebook, he has a lot to say about that.

"My students love having the technology available and it allows all of my students access to materials that they may not normally have access to. From an instructional point of view, I like having the ability for students to learn research skills and supplement regular instruction using the technology. The adeptness of my students in using their Chromebooks is astounding," he said.

Sampsell explained what a Chromebook is.

"It is a netbook, basically a laptop that has all its software and settings saved online instead of on a hard drive. For all intents and purposes it is just a laptop," he said.
