Made for each other …
Certain things are just made for each other.
Meat and a hot grill
Summer and sprinklers
Kids and popsicles
OK, so I couldn’t get my mind past SUMMER. Probably like a lot of our clients right now. But before it’s time to lock the doors at the school and turn off that part of the brain … Chromebooks made an announcement on May 19th that may have users excited and a little leary.
When it comes to portable devices for education, Chromebook and schools are also made for each other. “Chromebooks are the most popular K-12 device out there with Chrome OS taking up more than 50% of the market,” but that means a few problems as discussed in the article on EdSurge, Welcome to My House: Android Apps Are Coming to Google Chromebooks.
Until now, apps that were introduced in Android were not able to be used on Chromebook, much to the chagrin of many a teacher and administrator. But Chromebooks announced on the 19th that it will be introducing Android to its products.
YAY!!! Oh wait. Like kids in a candy store, users can get overly excited when a plethora of new apps become available and not take into consideration the possible security risks, data usage, or device storage.
