Education

Google unlocks the potential of every student and teacher alike through the intuitive, highly-accessible, and near-unlimited functionality available throughout their education ecosystem.

Google devices and software are designed to adapt and grow with their users, giving them the creative and technical tools that never put a limit on their potential.

Chromebooks

Chrome devices for Education

As user-agnostic devices, Chromebooks are ideally suited to the classroom: students simply pick up a Chromebook from the rack, login, and all their work, apps, and settings are there, just how they left them on another Chromebook yesterday.

  • Background updates install the latest security and features every 6 weeks
  • Sandboxed identities, user profiles, and OS
  • Data encryption and verified security checks on every boot up

Available as tablets, laptops, or somewhere in between, there’s a Chromebook for every style of education.
