Are you managing or rolling out Chrome Devices at your school or district?
Does your IT staff have all the tools and knowledge they need to support Chrome in the field?
Chromebooks now account for over 50 percent of technology devices used in classrooms across North America. Our one day training session will provide you with insight into what devices and models will best fit the needs of your schools. As well as best practices on deployment and management of these devices at scale via the G Suite Admin Console. There is more that just Chromebooks in the Chrome family. We also cover Chrome boxes, bases, and bits as well as the Chrome browser for Windows and Mac platforms. Finally a showcase and discussion of premium and free tools that are out there to make life easier for IT teams as well as a question and answer session complete the day.
The day consists of in-depth training and overview of the following:
Chrome Device Selection and Deployment
Current models, features, and how to enroll and provision efficiently at scale.
Deep dives into User and Device settings with a focus on K-12 best practices. Which settings are best suited for 1 to 1 deployments versus shared devices and what the effect will be on your staff and students.
Extended features and use cases
How to convert old PC and Mac systems into Chrome devices to breath new life and control into them. Digital Signage on Chrome, Kiosk mode for standardized testing, and accessibility for younger students.
