While all these different resources have their advantages and disadvantages, one relative new-comer to the field is Google’s Chromebook, and it offers some serious potential at an incredibly reasonable price.
In the classroom, this can make things much simpler. Students can navigate the device by opening specific apps, much like they’re used to in a smartphone environment, and there’s a lot less “traditional operating system” to distract students and get in the way. Plus, the Chromebook system updates itself automatically and allows students to safely store all their work in the cloud.
On top of all that, the Chromebook starts at $199, which is a much better price point than any tablets, laptops, or desktops you can find for the classroom.
So, if you’re curious about Chromebooks in the classroom, or you’re already using them, Intel Education has just launched an awesome new resource to help teachers utilize the device to its full potential. If you head over to intel.com/chromeEDU you’ll find a collection of posts, ideas, articles, and resources from EdTech bloggers like Vicki Davis, Lisa Nielson, and plenty of others that we regularly feature here on the Roundup.
So, if you’re using Chromebooks, curious about them, or just looking for a new option in the classroom, check out intel.com/chromeEDU and spend a few moments exploring all the resources they have to offer.
