Share this post:  
Chrombooks are versatile tools with huge educational potential. Instead of software programs found on regular computers, Chromebooks make use of web apps providing users with much more flexibility and practicality in handling and conducting their digital tasks. Web apps can be easily downloaded from Chrome web store. One important tip before you download an app is to  check its privacy policy and make sure you understand the type of information the app collects about your usage. It is also recommended that you spend sometime in the review section to see what other people who have used it say about its performance.
