Here’s Why This School District Chose Google Chromebooks Over Mac And Windows Read more:

Will we see analogous expansion of thin clients and cloud computing for geospatial?

When David Andrade became the CIO for the Bridgeport Public Schools District in Connecticut last year, he knew he was in for a big challenge.

 Only a few old desktop PCs were located in the district’s public schools, and his limited budget made it difficult to place a big order for new computers. Being in a working-class community, where 95% of the students receive free or reduced-cost lunches, most students didn’t have access to computers outside of school, either. 

So when he was asked to bring more computers to Bridgeport public schools, Andrade immediately thought of Google’s Chromebook. He had tried one of the first Chromebooks in 2010, when Google sent it to him for review on his blog, and was impressed by its price and functionality.
