Chromebook Looks to Beat Out iPads in the Classroom
May 18, 2011 § Leave a comment
Google’s newest investment, the Chromebook, is being geared towards educators in hopes of being the mobile device of choice in the classroom. Chromebook looks to appeal to school economically, with the devices being rented out at $20 per student per month in a three year contract. It is also set to be entirely Web based and will work with Google’s Apps for Education.
The Chromebook doesn’t just mean that a student will have her or his own laptop to use at home and at school. This is a device that is built around the Web, in terms of its operating system and in terms of its purpose. The devices that are available via the Chromebook for Education program will have 3G and wireless capabilities, which is important as many students may not have access to the Internet at home.
So big question is, are you for iPads or for the Chromebook?
