Chromebooks are becoming increasingly popular as they offer a wide range of educational tools adapted to meet the needs of both pupils and teachers, such as the ability to collaborate in a secure environment. Here are three key benefits to using a Chromebook;
1) Collaboration with G Suite for Education
Chromebooks enable instant access to Google’s suite of educational apps and tools hosted online. This includes a classroom version of Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, as well as Google Classroom.
Apps are accessible from any Chromebook device opening up a huge opportunity for collaboration and teamwork between teachers and pupils. Tools such as Google Docs can be accessed by multiple users simultaneously, allowing pupils to work together on projects that have the added benefit of saving automatically as they progress.
2) Budget Friendly and Durable
Google have partnered with multiple brands such as Asus, Lenovo, Acer, HP and Dell, resulting in a wide range of products and prices to meet different budgets.
Chromebooks are highly durable and can survive a fair amount of wear and tear, making them ideally suited for environments where they will be handled by multiple students.
3) Greater Control for Administrators, Teachers and IT Staff
With a Chrome Education Licence, it is possible for administrators, teachers and IT support teams to manage hundreds of student devices from one central interface.
Chromebooks are built with multiple security features which are automatically updated regularly giving schools the option to apply various controls and restrictions to ensure their pupils are safeguarded from harmful content.
