      3. Chromebooks in Education: Everything You Need to Know:
        A student needs a few basic things to get the most an education has to offer and a Chromebook is a great way to fulfill those basics. A big part of the essentials are tools to get and stay organized, a resource to study and find the information they need to know, and a system where they can communicate with other students and educators. Students of higher learning, whether young adults or older adults, know this and can make sure they have the tools needed. For younger students, it's important that the right tools be provided so they can learn about the world around them and what they can do when they are pushed into it. They also need to learn how to learn, which can be the biggest challenge to an educator.

        You can find out more: HERE.
