Chromebooks for K12 Schools
Building off the popular Google Apps for Education, Google has developed and released several models of Chromebooks aimed at the K-12 market. Chromebooks require little maintenance and setup from technology staff, booting out of the box in under ten seconds. Students and staff use Google accounts to login to devices and utilize Google Drive to store data and applications; this allows users to grab any Chromebook for any task.
Chromebooks utilize the standard word processing and publication apps, as well as apps available through the Chrome OS store. Many of these apps can also be utilized offline, and all data backs up automatically to your cloud-hosted Google Drive when connected to the Internet.
- Access a wide variety of models to choose from to give you a competitive price per unit.
- The Chromebook Management Console to help manage the many devices in your school or district.
- A “White Glove” service to save you precious time and money. This service can include asset tagging, network setup, and connecting your devices to your Google Apps Domain, making your device ready out of the box.
- A special 2 hour Professional Development “JumpStart” workshop to get your teachers started using this device for learning and instruction.
Samsung Chromebooks start at $249, making them a very affordable model for 1:1 initiatives and cart rollouts. The Samsung Chromebooks feature USB, HDMI, a web cam and a multi-card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC).
Lenovo Chromebooks utilize the rugged, sturdy body of the x131E – a favorite laptop model of many K12 technology programs. The Lenovo Chromebook also boasts USB and HDMI connectivity along with a webcam.
