google chromebook manifest(ing) destiny

MANIFEST(ING) DESTINY: Google has recently announced it will bring over 27,000 Chromebooks to three school districts in Iowa, Illinois, and South Carolina that have committed to implementing a 1:1 Chromebook program. (This expands their reach to an unspecified "hundreds of schools" across 41 states.) Tom Vander Ark spoke with a few district officials and shares in Huff Post why they like them: the easy setup makes them "invisible and get out of the way to allow students and teachers to focus on instruction." It also helps that Google rolled out a clean, new education site, which features a handy news and events calendar, along with more focused tools for educators and organizations.
