How Chromebooks save valuable classroom time

Teachers, students and IT admins save hours and hours of time by using Chromebooks, according to new research from Forrester. Chromebooks start fast and stay fast, with automatic updates that don’t interrupt teaching or learning time — up to 18 hours of more learning time for students and 42 hours saved per teacher per year. The Google Admin console helps IT admins save up to 75% more time by managing thousands of laptops in one place.

Chromebooks are better for your budget

Chromebooks can help budgets go further by helping schools get up to a 229% return on investment. “We first considered a traditional notebook for our students, but we decided to instead invest in Chromebooks because they are laptops aimed at education. Also, [Chromebooks] cost less, which allowed us to purchase a greater number and make more available to the schools,” said an IT Superintendent for K-12 in Latin America (Forrester, 2024).

Chromebooks meet your needs and for safe and secure learning

Even with limited IT resources, Chromebooks can be managed remotely with the Cloud based Google Admin console, making it simple to set up and manage laptops with full control over which apps can be used, and 24/7 Google support. Built-in security on Chromebooks means that no antivirus software is needed, because Chromebooks come with verified boot, sandboxing and 256-bit data encryption. There have been zero reported successful ransomware attacks on Chromebooks to date because ChromeOS is the most secure OS out of the box. Chromebooks pair perfectly with Google Workspace for Education, including Google Classroom, making them easy to use for all ages and experience levels. Teachers can also share Chromebooks between classes using private managed sessions, and come with kiosk and locked mode — perfect for exams or quizzes.
