"Once the Chromebooks are set up and deployed, the updates happen on
their own, and the Chromebooks improve with no effort on our part..."
—Matthew Peskay, Director of IT, KIPP LA
Chromebooks are fast, portable computers that give students and faculty access
to the educational apps and resources of the Web. They have a Web-based management console that makes it easy for you to deploy and centrally manage a fleet of Chrome devices and users.
Chromebooks improve teaching and learning by eliminating the distraction of technology challenges. They boot in less than 10 seconds and resume instantly—eliminating the typical downtime wasted while traditional computers start up and connect to a network. A battery life of over 6 hours means Chromebooks last an entire school day.
With just a few clicks, administrators can update settings for the entire fleet of Chromebooks—whatever the size—pushing or removing Web applications and enforcing safe-browsing policies for all users.
Chromebooks are built and optimized for the Web. This means that Chromebooks seamlessly integrate with the Google Apps suite of tools (available free to schools), Web apps in the Chrome Web Store, and of course content across the entire web.
Chromebooks for Education don’t simply include the hardware and the operating system, which updates automatically. For an additional per-device cost, Google will also provide the ability to remotely manage users, apps, and policies across your entire fleet of devices via a central Web-based management console.
