Chromebook Orientation Activities for Students

This is a set of orientation activities for students to complete in order to learn about their Lenovo Yoga 11e Thinkpad Chromebooks. It consists of ten suggested tasks, each linked to a separate video that demonstrates how to complete the activities in the task.

Teachers, you can lead your students through this as a whole group activity or opt to allow them to work at their own pace. If they work individually, we suggest that you encourage them to bring and use headphones.
