Google ChromeBook 101: A Guide to ChromeBooks

   This year, grades nine through twelve are receiving Google Chromebooks, but most people aren’t really sure what it is.
   A Google Chromebook is a laptop created by Google. Instead of having Microsoft Office programs, this laptop will have various educational apps for you to use.
   The Chromebooks include a modern web browser that is easy to use in class. It has a faster start up time which includes an all-day battery life, and built in virus protection. The Chromebook has an 11.6 inch display, over 6.5 hours of battery, HDMI Port, and is only 0.7 inches thin.
   Everyone seems to have different opinions about the Google Chromebooks. This includes all of the teachers, who will be working with the students and Chromebooks.
    “I think it’d be a great tool, as long as they are utilized properly,” English teacher Mrs. Patel said.
   Google Chromebooks come with lots of helpful tools, but may take some getting used to. The Chromebooks should hopefully be handed out next week.
    “Technology is great. It’s a supplemental piece. It can enhance the learning environment,” History teacher Mr. Bosworth said.
