EasyChalk - Digital Whiteboard for Chromebook Users

I found a new Google Chrome App today called Easy Chalk. As many classrooms are moving away from Interactive Whiteboards toward Chromebooks and LED TVs, there is still sometimes a need for a digital whiteboard.

If this sounds like you, you have to try EasyChalk. This Chrome App allows you the freedom of a digital whiteboard on your computer or Chromebook, complete with:

  • Pens
  • Markers
  • Shapes
  • Tables
  • Charts
  • Measuring Tools
  • Video
  • Sounds
  • Images

Plus, you can also upload your own images for use with any of the pages you create. Since this is a chrome app, the developers of Easy Chalk have given you the ability to sign in with your Google Account allowing you to access your media files that you have uploaded at any time. If you are a former Smart Notebook user, think Notebook in the cloud.

Need a quick way to project what you are working on to your projector or TV? Use a Chromecast and broadcast your page to the screen so students can follow along.

If you have a touchscreen Chromebook, this is the perfect app to add to your arsenal. G
ive it a try!
