This makes ChromeBooks a great fit for education because most education institutions are using Google Docs to share and create documents. Rather than using Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), schools are using the free Google Doc’s programs which offers a great way to save money and collaborate on projects. The limited ability of ChromeBooks also pays dividends in the sense that students are limited in what the device can do and thus, have less avenues for distraction in the classroom. Due to the fact that ChromeBooks can’t install traditional programs or applications, students are also unable to install games on the ChromeBook.
Trinus Computer Centre and Parkland School Division have partnered up for the upcoming school year to help students get ready for back to school. We offer different ChromeBooks to students based on what their needs will be. All of our ChromeBooks match the criteria that is needed for the students in the classroom. The ChromeBooks that we offer have:
- Ability to connect to the internet
