Chromebook takeover signals major shift in education…but not in the way you may think - MERIS STANSBURY, eSchool News

Google's Chromebooks are now the most used devices in K-12 classrooms across the U.S. The use of Google in the classroom is true Googlification, or modeling learning off of Google’s own employee skillset, in that the use of Google and Chromebooks in the classroom aims to turn today’s students into creative and collaborative problem-solvers that know how to intuitively harness online and in-hand technologies. “Google is helping to drive a philosophical change in public education—prioritizing training children in skills like teamwork and problem-solving while de-emphasizing the teaching of traditional academic knowledge, like math formulas,” writes the New York Times. http://www.eschoolnews.com/2017/05/17/google-shift-education/
