When I first got my Samsung Chromebook, it was new enough that there weren’t any accessories, such as a carrying case, specifically for the Chromebook. I went to a local Office Depot (I think.), and found a Case Logic carrying case for it. About $25.
Both my Chromebook and my iPad can both fit, snuggly, in the same case, at the same time. Maybe a little heavy, but nice to have both, if needed. There is also another zipped pocket for my USB hard drive and a digital camera, and little tripod ($1 at Dollar Tree), and a pair of headphones.
Having both an iPad and a Chromebook provides you with alot of mobile computing capability. I could view a video while taking notes, or blogging my reactions easily. I could record video or take pictures with the iPad and push them to YouTube or Flickr, and then create a multi-media posting with text using my Chromebook to “easily” type a detailed article.
I bought this iPad to camera tripod connector from Amazon for about $15.
Here is the iPad connected to the camera tripod ready to take video from the classroom podium.
VRT in action:
The VRT does not work perfectly, but does a pretty good job. You can paste in a good amount of dialogue (without having to memorize what you are about to say… I would suggest rehearsing a time or two so that you don’t stumble over difficult words or phrases.).
