The school day is always busy. It is filled with lessons, distractions, transitions between classes, students who need extra help, and so much more. It can seem like a constant struggle to figure out how to make the day more efficient and a little less hectic.

Tech already can make the school day more efficient, but why not improve that even more? One of the greatest things about using technology in the classroom is that there are ways to make tech work better for the person who is using it. One way of doing this is by taking advantage of keyboard shortcuts. This is especially true when it comes to Chromebooks. We have created a list of Chromebook shortcuts that will make using tech quicker and more efficient for both you and your students.
