Everything Teachers Need to Know about Chromebooks (9 Tutorials) ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Everything Teachers Need to Know about Chromebooks (9 Tutorials) ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Writing News Stories | Scoop.it
Chromebooks are making gigantic inroads in the education sector. Several school districts here in Canada and the States are adopting them as teaching tools within classrooms. Their growing popularity among the education community is attributable not only to their reasonably cheap price but also to a host of excellent features that you can not find in other devices. Chromebooks are easier to handle, faster and more secure. They are also " instantly personalizable by each student or teacher, and easy to manage, making them an ideal solution for bringing the power of the web to your classrooms".
