Martyn Crawshaw at Millburn Academy has created some video tutorials explaining how to use Google Sheets for creating a graphs. These can then be embedded into a Google Doc and if there are any updates/changes to the data in the table then this will automatically update your graph in the document.
Below is another video from Martyn detailing G Suite uses for Higher and Advanced Higher Physics.
In the link below are 4 templates that you could use to personalise your Viglen 360 Chromebook.
There is a PDF, Google Drawings, Word Document and a SerifDraw document that you could use as a template. In all Highland secondary schools SerifDraw is installed and it could act as a good project for S1/S2 ICT/Tech to complete. You could use Microsoft Word/Google Drawings to add pictures/text inside the template and then print it out.
Another option is to print out the template and get the pupils to complete this using colourful pens/pencils.
To stick this cover to the front of your Chromebook you could use blue tac or a self-adhesive paper similar to this one from Amazon.

Give a brief explanation of your project.
We have created a Chrome stand in one of our classroom to help all our children become more familiar with using Chromebooks, setting up online profiles and using Google Classroom as well as the main other apps within Google.
How has the technology enhanced learning and teaching within your school/department?
Technology continues to have a huge impact on learning and teaching within our school. The use of apps such as Google Classroom continue to help make learning relevant, personalised and provides further challenge. Children have been further developing the skills they need for life, learning and work. Children have been using the Chromebooks to research and consider career options using apps such as Hangouts to share research as well as using G Suite apps to present their information.
Any tips for other schools looking to do a similar project?
We found that our children were already very familiar with the majority of G Suite and were very quick learners!
Next steps for the project...
