During the FETC (Florida Educational Technology Conference) keynote, Rajen Sheth, Google’s Group Product Manager for Chromebooks, has announced a new deal, which would bring nearly 27 000 Chromebooks to the US schools.
Where are they headed?
According to the search giant, all of them will be delivered to the Iowa, Illinois and South Carolina states. Furthermore, as Google focuses on specific schools, pretty much every student will receive one.
Chromebooks make our 1-to-1 computing dream a reality. Teachers don’t need to add ‘help desk’ to their job description, and they save valuable class time knowing they can instruct students to close the Chromebooks to stay on task and they won’t have to wait when it’s time to open them again. Furthermore, we’ve seen that any behavior issues become an absolute non-issue because the technology is so compelling.
So, in case you want to receive a brand new Chromebook, just head over to one of these schools and pretend to be a student, even if you are a 40 year old man.
