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.
