To be a better teacher, you must first educate yourself.
That is the core philosophy of the partnership between Acer for Education and EdTechTeam, which are working together to provide teachers with a series of free, bite-sized online courses to get up to date with the latest developments in educational technology.
The goals of the synergy between Acer and EdTechTeam are simple, but essential to a truly modern teacher who wants to make the most of the opportunities offered by EdTech:
- Enabling teachers to learn about the hottest topics and trends in the use of technology in the classroom and understand the profound impact EdTech can have on their teaching methods, and with them, on their students;
- Providing content in free, short, easily accessible modules that only require an Internet connection and some willingness to learn. Forget travelling to long seminars and workshops: with EdTechTeam’s online courses, you can update your teacher training from the comfort of your home with shorter, more manageable lessons.
Let’s have a closer look at what EdTechTeam has to offer.
Getting Started with your ACER Chromebook
This course provides useful tips and tricks for an optimal use of your ACER Chromebook. Designed with Internet browsing in mind, the keyboard of an Acer Chromebook has many shortcuts for an easier and more streamlined use of the Web that will save valuable teaching time while you enjoy having virtually endless resources at your fingertips and, who knows, even looking cool in front of your students.
In the hands of a smart and creative enough teacher, this course could change the face of your classroom for the better. If you are unfamiliar with your new ACER Chromebook, or even if you think you are familiar with it, but could use a refresher, sign up for the course here.
Getting Started with your ACER Chromebook Tab
An ACER Chromebook Tab offers a wealth of apps that can be used for an educational purpose. This course offers examples of how using an ACER Chromebook Tab can expand your classroom far beyond its walls to give your students a richer, more immersive experience.
Google Expeditions is just one of many resources you can add to your Acer Chromebook Tab to shape a learning experience they will never forget: offering a wide range of virtual reality field trips and augmented reality objects to explore from all angles, Google Expeditions can turn your screen into a window that opens to the bottom of the ocean or bring smaller versions of the wonders of the ancient world directly to your desk if you so desire.

But wait, there’s more!
This only scratches the surface of what EdTechTeam and Acer have to offer together. From creating a collaborative classroom with Google Classroom for better teamwork and a more efficient management of your assignments, to engaging your students with fun choose-your-own-adventure stories that will hone their decision-making and critical thinking skills without their noticing, the only limit to the ways to use technology in class is your own imagination, and with a little help from Acer and EdTechTeam, your imagination can go even further.
