Advantages of Chromebooks in an Educational Setting
1) The Chromebook is a more academically purposeful tool. It complements the necessary researching, writing, and keyboarding skills that are critical in elementary, middle, and secondary schools and beyond.
2) The Chromebook is made for superior workflow and student content creation and revision (whereas the iPad is more interactive and explorative in nature, better for our youngest grades where it will remain in our program).
3) The Chromebook is better for IT management, as the devices do not need constant updating. They feature high-speed functioning, unlimited storage and strong battery life. Furthermore, because this is a web-based device, students can access their work from any device.
4) Our research and discussions with peer schools and high schools indicate that the use of Chromebooks has been successful at many schools like Tower with similar missions and programs.
