In the last few years, there has been a sea change in the way education is being imparted to students in classrooms. The traditional method of lecturing by a teacher using text books has become obsolete and ineffective. Technology has penetrated in a big way into classrooms. From smartphones to electronic whiteboards, teachers are using smart technology to make learning interactive and easy for the kids. Google, the internet giant, has joined this revolution in a big way by introducing Chromebooks for schools.
Chromebooks are smart computers that are inexpensive, and which run in Chrome web browser. These devices connect to internet in just 8 seconds once their power button is pressed with the help of Wi-Fi. These notebooks have long lasting batteries that last for the entire duration of the school. Thus, there is no distraction and kids can focus upon their lessons.
It is not just the ease of accessing internet but also availability of wide ranging educational apps that make these Chromebooks for school a very attractive prospect for teachers and students. Also, as all information is stored not on the device but the cloud, Chromebooks can be easily shared between students. Any student can pick up any Chromebook and access their information by signing into their Google account.
