We received a special package in the mail today – a Google Chromebook! It’s small and light, boots up quickly, and couldn’t be simpler to use. A great netbook for easy student access to Web 2.0 sites like Glogster EDU. I’ve been hogging it in the office all morning (sorry, guys!) for basic web browsing, Google Docs, Glogging, and blogging (on it now, in fact), and the battery is still going strong. If you or your students spend most of your time on your laptop online, then a simple Chromebook might be the way to go.
Mike will be demonstrating Glogster EDU on the Chromebook at FETC next week. Stop by the Google booth (#1101) on Thursday, January 26 between 1:45 and 2:00 PM to see this baby in action.
Does anyone else have a Chromebook? Considering cloud computers for your students? Tell me your thoughts in the comments!
