what is a chromebook1
It looks like a laptop, but it isn’t!
  • Features:
    • No hard drive, CD, etc.
    • USB only
    • Student-proofing
    • No Ethernet, so…
  • Just a browser, apps, and a keyboard
What *is* a ChromeBook?
what is a chromebook2
You can think of a ChromeBook as:
  • An Internet-dependent tablet
  • That starts up super fast
  • Powered by Google’s Chrome operating system
  • With the only app natively stored on the device being a browser
  • Everything else is composed of Web apps (email, photos, documents), or apps that run while you’re connected to a network.
  • Of course, this means there’s very little you can do on the ChromeBook without Internet access.
  • The high point about everything being saved on the Web is that you’ll have access to it from any computer.
  • Plus, if a ChromeBook ever bites the dust, students won’t have to worry about losing all their apps, documents, and settings.
