Robin Edited Profile

Welcome! My name is Robin Limpert. It is so nice to meet you! I have been an elementary teacher for 25 years, Master Teacher, Google Certified Educator and Project Excellence Award winner. I have taught Title One Reading, kindergarten, first grade and second grade in a self-contained classroom in Cincinnati, Ohio. So, you could say that my heart is with the youngest learners in our school system today. I began this site over the summer of 2015 as a way to share and collect high-quality teaching practices utilizing varied technologies. I have a passion for finding and sharing exciting new resources to fit the unique needs of our primary children. Seeing the faces of our students as they are deeply engaged in their own learning using technology is worth every minute of our time.  I am amazed every day at how quickly our little “Digital Natives” learn, share, adapt and problem solve when given high-quality technology resources. Please feel free to comment and contribute to my site. I would love to hear from you! We are our own most valuable asset.

    Hi Robin,

    I purchased your Chromebooks for Kids book on Amazon. I love your ideas and can’t wait to get started in the classroom. I have one question about one of the Google Slides project on the snowman. I found the Build A Snowman resource and then you mention Hyperlink your table of Contents #6 and I’m not sure what you mean by that direction. Any clarification would be helpful. Thanks

      Hello Lisa!

      I am beyond thrilled that you are able to use my resource! It has truly been a labor of love. 🙂 To answer your question, item #6 – “Hyperlinking Your table of contents” on the “I Can Checklist” is referring to what you learn from watching the lesson video #4 “Hyperlinking Your Table of Contents” in the bottom of resource box to the left. I went into my original copy and added clarification so others may benefit from your question. Many students, myself included did not know that hyperlinking was a built-in component to Slides. Being able to place a link on a slide, allowing the viewer to have a shortcut to another page has been a huge organizational help!

      Thank you for giving me the opportunity to clarify this for you. Let me know if I can do anything else.
      Robin

    Hi Robin!
    My son Gabriel Peres is taking your Chromebook enrichment class, I am learning a lot with him. We got a Chromebook at home and I am loving it!
    I saw you are offering a Side-by-Side class on next term, I would love to attend, but I have a younger son, so, that’s not going to happen.
    I believe your initiative to improve and promote digital literacy is very important. My son Gabriel enjoys electronic games, he could spend hours in dumb games, I spend a lot of time trying to “channel” it to product and/or creative tools. I also try hard to make connections between the tech and the real worlds. I believe we, parents, need to learn a lot about it. This isn’t about to handle the latest technology to our kids, it is about to make them think how to find the best solution for their challenges.

    Please, if you ever need help, count on me.

      Hello Marcia,
      It was so sweet of you to offer such kind words of encouragement! I am in process of trying to put together summer sessions for kids and parents like you. I have had many parents ask the same questions and have the same concerns. I have a meeting with the leader of our Technology Department- Jonathan Cooper, in few weeks to discuss the details. I will be in touch by email here very soon.

      Robin,
      Is your chromebook for kids for elementary students or high school. I was wondering.

        Hi Kristen,
        Thank you for your interest in my book! I use it to teach kids that are new to Chromebooks in 2nd through 4th grades. Really any age that does not have “Chrome” experience could benefit. If your high schoolers are familiar with Chrome/Google apps, it might be too easy for them. I have had many teachers ask to use it to get themselves started.
