The 1:1 classroom is fast becoming a reality. Many school districts have invested in tablets, laptops and Chromebooks. Students now have access to their own tablets and other powerful computing devices. Web applications (aka apps) have become the tools of the digital classroom. Knowing which apps to use can make the difference between seamless 1:1 integration or ineffective use of otherwise powerful technologies. In this presentation we demonstrate how Google's Chrome Web store and Chrome OS offer linkages to free, useful apps that can enliven 1:1 adoption programs.
