Malaysia’s education system is ready to make a bold move by adopting Google Apps for 10 million students, teachers and parents. Included in the mass deployment is the use of Acer and Samsung Chromebooks by primary and secondary schools nationwide.
The easy setup, security features and simple management that Chromebooks require will further learning and sharing in classrooms throughout Malaysia, noted Felix Lin, director of product management at Google.
Lin adds: “The Web gives our children and students new opportunities to access the world’s information and work collaboratively. We look forward to working with national and regional leaders to make the most of the Web with Google Apps and Chromebooks and help them provide the best opportunities to every student.”
The Department of Education in The Philippines is another Asian country to deploy Google Apps in a move to improve educational access and quality in the school system.
