Hey friends! I am the Instructional Technology Facilitator here at Winecoff. You might be wondering what that means? I work with students to learn about all the cool technology tools and resources that Cabarrus County is offering, as well work with the teachers to show them ways to integrate those tech tools & resources in the classroom to engage students in STEM.
I am beginning my 13th year working in public school education. Last year sure did look different from ANY other year, and I am EXCITED to kick things off this year and continue supporting our students and families!
Chromebook Trouble Shooting Tips
Chromebook Not Powering On
If the Chromebook lid is left open without activity, eventually the Chromebook will go to sleep but it appears to be powered off. Some families are experiencing difficulties getting the Chromebook to wake-up once it goes to sleep. Please try the steps below to help wake the Chromebook up if you experience this issue at home.
- Plug the Chromebook into the charger
- Hold the refresh button (top row, looks like a circle with an arrow) and the power button for 10-15 seconds
- Double tap the power button
- The Chromebook should come on at this point.
- One last step to try if it does not come on is to close the Chromebook lid and open it again.
- Please place a help ticket if you need further assistance.
This is a known issue with Microsoft Teams that we are aware of. Unfortunately, there is not a fix for this.
