Chromeooks in schools by iDream education,

As schools in India continue to adapt to the challenges and opportunities of the digital age, many are turning to Chromebooks as cost-effective and user-friendly digital learning solutions. The devices based on Google’s Chrome operating system offer a range of benefits for students and teachers alike, making them a key part of the future of education.

Maximize the teaching-learning potential with Chromebooks in Schools

Googlers took the first Chromebooks into schools in the U.S. for a pilot program in 2010. From this, it was found that teachers and students have embraced using Chromebooks in the classroom, providing each student with a device for personalized learning. The teachers believe that the Chromebooks in school have helped them transform the learning experience making learning more interactive, engaging, and personalized.

Google then expanded the Chromebook School programme in India. To accelerate the use of Chrome books in Indian schools, the company started with a Pilot in 4 schools in Andhra Pradesh to which Mr. Ponnala Lakshmaiah Ji, Ex-Minister for Information Technology and Communications for the state of Andhra Pradesh, said, “Chromebooks will lead to interactive learning, will make subjects interesting, leading to a better understanding of students.

Similarly, when 147 schools of the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) benefited from the Google Future Classroom initiative, where Google implemented Chromebooks and Google Workspace, it was found that Chromebooks with students have increased curiosity among students. Now, they are able to understand concepts better. Not just students but teaching has also become easier for complex subjects like maths.  

In the same context, Mr. Hari Narayanan, IAS, Commissioner of GVMC, said that with access to educational resources like Chromebooks, Google Workspace, and K-Yan, students had seen significant improvement in their performance. The use of educational technology has improved their grades by an average of 15% across all subjects. This, in turn, has also led to an increase in enrollment at the school of 12%.

Thus, to prepare students for a better future and deepen their digital skills, we at iDream Education designed Chromebook Lab. It is an easy-to-use and maintain Smart ICT Lab on Chromebooks with a Charging Rack, Preloaded Digital Content for K12 & Integrated Reporting for Personalized Learning in Schools. We are proud to be one of the digital learning solution providers compatible with Chromebooks.

Let us walk you through teachers’ views on using Chromebook

  • “I can easily create dynamic and engaging lessons to gain students’ attention and spark their curiosity.”
  • “Chromebooks in schools will help us in organizing collaborative learning activities and personalizing our teaching to each student.”
  • “All Chromebooks in one digital library will enable easy management of devices.”

The potential of Chromebooks in schools goes beyond just the classroom. Integrating Chromebooks will empower students to use digital content to understand better what is being taught in class and interact in classroom activities like reading comprehension, practice, and much more.

As more and more schools in India will adopt Chrome books and other digital learning solutions, it is clear that they have the potential to drive the future of education in the country, providing students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in an increasingly digital world.
