Here is an idea to help manage Chromebooks in the classroom and to give students clear expectations for the use of Chromebooks (or other devices) upon the start of your class.
Here is what you need:
A red, yellow and green circle or square and a clip to hang the color of your choice for the day. When preparing for the lesson, make a note on how you would like to begin class.
Here is a poster to display showing the expectations for each color:

This idea came directly from our high school staff and we plan to try this method out to start the new school year. Giving students clear direction at the start of class will help to alleviate any issues with students being distracted or consumed with their device when beginning class.
If you have an idea of for Chromebook management that you are willing to share, I'd love to hear about it.
