How to Sanitize a Chromebook
Defending your students and staff from Coronavirus and other illnesses starts with keeping the thing they use most (their technology) clean.  Due to their prominence in the classroom, being able to sanitize Chromebooks properly is a critical skill, but most of us have never been taught how.
Events at a Glance
ILTPP vendor partners host webinars, workshops, lunch and learns, summits, and much more. We make it our mission to seek out relevant edtech events and share them with ILTPP members.
