This fall, the PS 130 Parent Teacher Association, lead on this activity by Christine Farrell, generously purchased 30 new Chromebook computers for the 4th and 5th grade!  Chromebooks (see video at bottom of page) allow students to log directly into a personalized computing experience using their @ps130brooklyn.com Google Apps for Education accounts.

So far, they are being used daily by 4th and 5th graders for Google Drive word processing that includes cloud-based collaboration with their teachers, Scratch Animation using code, Internet-based research, and more!

For this, we say, THANK YOU!

Here are some Thank You Letters Typed using Google Drive on the Chromebooks!
