Chromebooks are making gigantic inroads in the education sector. Several school districts here in Canada and the States are adopting them as teaching tools within classrooms. Their growing popularity among the education community is attributable not only to their reasonably cheap price but also to a host of excellent features that you can not find in other devices. Chromebooks are easier to handle, faster and more secure. They are also ” instantly personalizable by each student or teacher, and easy to manage, making them an ideal solution for bringing the power of the web to your classrooms”.
Here are some of the things K-12 schools can do with Chromebooks:
- Scale access to the web with computers that are simple to use and easy to distribute
- Share devices among students, with no manual set-up for different users
- Enjoy constant connectivity through integrated Wi-Fi and optional 3G, for always-on access without relying on school networks
- Administer machines throughout the school, no matter how many Chrome devices you have, or where they’re being used
