Chromebooks are lightweight laptops designed for people who spend most of the time online. These Chromebook runs on Linux-based Chrome OS as its operational system. Chromebooks are easy to use, have virus protection built-in, and keep going with a long-life battery, so you and the students can, too. Chromebooks for Education give students, teachers, and administrators a simple solution for fast and easy-to-manage computing.
Chromebooks could improve teaching and learning by wiping out the distraction of technology challenges. A battery life of over 6 hours means Chromebooks last an entire school day. You can use your Chromebook anytime anywhere online, by using wifi or 3G.
Tip 1: Easy to manage
Set up a device is easy and it takes just a couple of minutes. It does not matter if you manage 10 or 10,000 devices across your school, district or region. You can create user groups and classes, pre-install and block apps extensions and URL’s. Set network and proxy settings to make it easy for users to get up and running and ensure that they’re protected by web filters and firewalls.
Tip 2: Never lose your documents
Laptops are stolen every day. You or your students are out of luck if all the school work is in there. If you use Chromebooks it is no big deal anymore, because all your documents and notes are safe in the cloud. You can get your work back by buying a new Chromebook, then signing into your Google account. Google has provided a new tool to deal with stolen or lost chromebooks. In Google Apps Admin Console you have the ability to disable a Chromebook until it is returned.
Tip 3: Streamline with Classroom
Google Classroom is your mission control for class. Create classes, distribute assignments, send feedback, and see everything in one place. Students can work together or correct each other by looking online at each other’s work. There is no need to waste paper and you can work on you assignments everywhere you want.
Tip 4: Share with unlimited students
It is easy to share documents with your students. You can easily create a class with just a few clicks. Add your students by sending them a class code or adding them directly. Create an assignment and send a copy to every individual student. You will be able to see who’s completed the assignment and who’s still working on it. Students can start a conversation privately with the teacher or ask questions to the whole class.
Tip 5: Show parents the value of technology
Parents could be concerned about the quality of education while using these technologies. When you start working with Chromebooks and G Suite for Education it is important that every teacher and student knows how it works and how they can use these technology in the best way for collaboration together. Show the technology in action and parents will be convinced by the real impact it has on their children’s education together with the computer skills that are necessary for these generations. Parents will feel the power of real-time collaboration.
