Chromebooks keep things simple. Using the Chrome OS operating system from Google, they’re perfect for students who are heading back to the classroom. They’re super-easy to use and boot up in seconds, so you can get to work immediately. Plus, with G Suite, you’ll have everything you need to ace the academic year.
Chromebooks give you all the tools needed for school with G Suite.
Google Classroom lets you check in on your kid’s assignments, get in touch with their teachers, and view feedback and grades. So, you’ll always know how they’re doing. With Calendars, you can even see your child’s specific class and what events and assignments they have coming up.
As if that wasn’t enough, Access Drive works as your child’s virtual backpack. They can store their documents and assignments securely, keeping their work saved automatically and ready to access.
Worried about not having access to all the best software? No need, because Chromebooks work with Microsoft® Office online. You won’t be able to directly download programmes though, but it’s okay, since you can access them all through the web. So, once you’ve logged into to your Office or Outlook account, you’ll be able to easily move between Word, Excel® and PowerPoint®. Your emails, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides will also be there – there’ll be no stopping you.
Additional functionality available with a Microsoft 365 subscription. Microsoft, Excel and PowerPoint are registered trademarks of Microsoft Corporation.
Set up easily: Even when you are in a hurry, just log into your G Suite for Education or Family Link supervised Google Account, and you’ll find your Google Drive files and Chrome preferences on your new Chromebook.
Want to keep your kid focused? Take control of their devices with the Family Link app. You can set digital ground rules to make sure they don’t get distracted from their work.
You don’t even have to be connected to the internet to get stuff done. Recent documents, spreadsheets, presentations and emails are all there to work on with offline access. It’s pretty useful.
Taking a break from studying? There’s still lots of fun to have offline. Play supported games without internet or download full episodes of your favourite shows from Netflix or Disney+*. Then you can watch the latest episodes no matter where you are without Wi-Fi.
Kick back & relax: Access apps that keep you entertained at home, like Netflix, Disney+, and more on Google Play. Enjoy the latest games, music, movies, TV, books, and magazines.
