cart full of Chromebooks to pilot at one of my campuses! :) (It's supposed to be an EPIC wish, right?!)
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Google Leadership Academy at Region 6, led by the OH-SO-FAB Amy Mayer. We mostly focused on Google Apps (that's a WHOLE other post!) but they demoed the new Chromebook and I even got to use one. It's - way - cool! Our campuses have netbook carts and the support these things require is ridiculous (installing updates, virus protection, pop-up windows, etc.). The Chromebook is really just a browser in a laptop shell. It boots in 8 seconds. It has a battery life of 8 hours. There's even a 3G option. Check out this short video...
If you're part of your Technology Department, you might be interested in this video, too. (This is what really sold me - SO MUCH LESS SUPPORT!)
SO...today...on 11/11/11 at 11:11 am...my EPIC wish has been tossed out to the universe. Crossing my fingers and holding my breath... :)
