Chromebook use in the classroom is showing steady growth, according to Google’s Global Education Evangelist.
In early February, Jaime Casap, reported: “There are now 2,000 schools using Chromebooks for Education – twice as many as 3 months ago. And with several Chrome devices available today, there is a device for any school, any student, anywhere.”
The latest schools to join the Chromebook program are the Transylvania County Schools in rural North Carolina deploying 900 devices; Florida-based St.Thomas Aquinas High School with 2,200 devices; and Rocketship Education in California is currently using 1,100 Chromebooks as part of their blending learning approach.
Casap added that the Google Apps for Education community also continues to expand, with Chicago Public Schools adding 270,000 students, teachers and administrators into the cloud.
