Chromebooks are at the forefront of edtech devices and for good reason. Need a device that’s sturdy enough to take what kids can dish out? Go for a Chromebook. Need something powerful enough to meet all your app and online needs? Grab a Chromebook. How about something that does all of the above, while still staying comfortably in budget? You got, Chromebook.
Google’s Chromebook is the laptop that is ultra-portable, is easy-to-use and keeps going with a long-life battery. It’s also in a class by itself because instead of running Windows or Mac OS it runs Google’s Chrome OS. Keep in mind that all Chromebooks are really designed to work when connected to the Internet. So if you’re looking for a school laptop that can run traditional offline programs, Office, Adobe, etc., the Chromebook is probably not your first choice.
Chromebooks are changing the way students learn. Today, more than 25 million teachers and students are using Chromebooks for education globally, 30 million teachers and students are using Google Classroom and 80 million are using G Suite for Education. Chromebooks allow educators to teach with touch screens, apps, 3D printers and even remotely if need be.
