Check out this sample chapter from Holly Clark's fantastic resource about blended learning and student-centered classrooms.
We've worked with Elevate Books Edu in the past to publish microbook versions of The Google Infused Classroom and Trevor Mackenzie's Dive Into Inquiry. So we're delighted to release the latest in our series - The Chromebook Infused Classroom.
The full book was published by Holly Clark in 2020 and is available as a paperback or Kindle edition on Amazon. If you know Holly Clark from her website, Facebook group or have attended one of her sessions at a conference, you'll know that this book is a must-read for anyone who has Chromebooks in their classroom.

Inside the Microbook
Holly allowed us to reproduce a chapter of her book in Book Creator, and we chose the chapter on 'Using the power of simplicity to change your classroom', as this is a concept that resonates deeply with us at Tools for Schools. We've also included the chapter that Holly wrote on Book Creator for those of you who aren't yet using Book Creator for Chrome. (You can get started for free here!)
Dan Kemp is the Marketing Director and has been working here since 2013. One of Dan’s favourite jobs is hearing the stories of how Book Creator is used to bring joy to classrooms all over the world, and he happily retells these stories on these pages!
