Chromebooks are portable lightweight computers that connect students wirelessly to their SD61Learn accounts. Chromebooks are an ideal solution for a wide array of student learning needs. The Chromebook platform facillitates a collaborative learning environment with the G-Suite platform of software tools that includes: Docs, Sheets, Forms, Sites, Hangouts, Chrome, and more! Gone are the days when you had to remember which was the last computer you used as a student can login to their accounts from any machine and pick up where they left off at their last session.
Please note that a Chromebook is not a laptop. The benefit of a Chromebook is that it is low cost, light solution to a cloud based laptop. There is no software or files that are stored on the Chromebook. This facilitates the need to have it as a shared device as an option for anyone in the classroom. A Chromebook can work nicely with other mobile devices, like iPads, because it relies on the G-Suite for Education platform which is available for free on almost all major app stores.
