One of the biggest knocks on Chromebooks is that you are not able to create on them. This is false. Chromebooks provided ample opportunity to create with them. One of the biggest downsides is that you cannot install many of the apps that people associated with being creative. 

 

While this might be a problem for some, it is not a problem for us. We have tools and apps available to help be creative, plus, much of Google Workspace allows for the creation of some pretty awesome objects with a little know-how. This module is designed to help you get started on being creative and creating on your Chromebook. From the start, we have powerful tools like Google Drawings and Google Slides at our disposal, but there is so much more to uncover. Get started with the basics and be prepared to learn even more about creating on your Chromebook and ChromeOS devices!
