Chromebooks

Glenanda Primary School recommends using Chromebooks. Chromebooks were designed with education in mind. They are simple to use, share and are secure. And they work extremely well with Google Apps.

Chromebooks run on Google Chrome OS, and will always update, no matter how old the device is.

Why do we love them?

  • simple to deploy (apps install and update automatically)

  • controlled Play Store (no more games)

  • monitored Internet to protect young learners

  • reports harmful and self-harm activity

  • CEU (Chrome Education Upgrade) - it cannot be removed by factory reset

  • able to disable lost and stolen devices - rendering them unusable

  • full-size keyboard

  • reliable - hardware and software
