This week I took part in Education on Air, Google’s annual series of presentations looking at the use of technology in the classroom. I talked about how and why we decided to switch from a fleet of 700 Windows desktops to Chromebooks and Google Apps.
In the video I cover the decision making process we went though, and why we abandoned a system that had been working perfectly well for more than a decade and turned to cloud based alternatives instead. I also talk about the things that worked, things that didn’t, and challenges we found along the way. I’ll also share how we went about finding the money to give every student in our school a “free” Chromebook from current school budget — no leasing required.
If you’re looking to use Google Apps and Chromebooks in any capacity check out the video above!
