On the day of yesterday, Google posted in his blog a post about the role that technology is playing in education, but in particular, on how to use the Chromebooks in Swedish schools.
Under the title “Schools in Sweden have made Chromebooks nummer ett (number one)!”, this publication was the news of the new HP Chromebook team, the Chromebook x 360 11 G1 Education Edition.
The new HP Chromebook is described in the post as a Chromebook “robust” and convertible 360 degree load USB Type-C, camera capabilities and a stylus or optional stylus.
The camera “world-facing” will allow students to capture pictures and videos from all directions. Google says that it has positioned it near the keyboard, when students bend equipment, the camera be outward-oriented and thus be able to use the new Chromebook as a tablet.
With regard to the stylus, it seems that this model would be one of the stylus of low cost that Google had already described previously. “It is a very similar to real pens accessory in both that includes a draft only to correct errors and they do not need to be uploaded or linked, so you can share and easily replaced if it is lost”.
Recently, and on the occasion of the MWC, Google announced that it ceased to manufacture Chromebook Pixel however, the truth is that these teams have become a popular choice in classrooms that are already relatively cheap. According to Google, “worldwide, more than 20 million teachers and students are using Chromebooks and Google Classroom, and G Suite used by more than 70 million for Education”.
The Chromebook x 360 11 G1 Education Edition will be available from mid-April, but its price and availability details have not been announced.
