Chromebooks - Great For Schools

I was of the opinion that iPads were better for creating content than Chromebooks, but according to one student, they are not when it comes to using them in school. It turns out that using Google drive and a Chromebook is easier to write papers and create presentations than trying to do so on an iPad. The apps on the iPad are not as robust as Google drive and not having a physical keyboard makes writing more difficult (I would agree). Another issue that many schools have not considered is that students are going to download games and social apps to the iPad, which are not available on Chromebook. Students will opt to play games or use a social app any chance they get, so using a Chromebook will limit this tendency. Chromebooks are great for schools and they will also save a bunch of money.

What do you think?
