I LOVE Chromebooks. I am a teacher and have been trying to get my hands on as many as I can for my classroom. I've written grants and currently have a Donors Choose project going. We have a few at my school, but not enough to be able to use them frequently. I've used them for research and assessments as well as games and group work. I was hesitant to move away from using Word, but Google Docs is so much more convenient for classroom use.

We use the computer mainly. We research a lot by going to sites like Wikipedia and historical websites. We use the library website for research also. And also we like to research genealogy to learn about our family history.

I love cutting-edge technology, and I use my laptop to purchase and read plenty of ebooks from Amazon, primarily about personal development and spiritual growth.

I love learning and I always look forward to using what I learn to help those around me. This Chromebook will be a gift for someone very dear to me (incidentally eager for a small laptop), and the $500 Visa card will be used for many, many more books and ebooks to expand my mind and grow my education! :)
