Acer Chromebook and Google for Education provided the school of the Randers Municipality, Denmark with the EdTech upgrade educators needed to let their students get the best out of their learning experience
Enhancing digital learning with Acer Chromebook
The institutes of the Randers Municipality were struggling with their previous devices for education. Their students’ laptops became slow, their battery life decreased, they were constantly bugged with updates and long boot times. Not to mention IT assistance, which became too frequent and expensive. A major change was needed. They were looking for a solution that could meet the needs of students, teachers and principals, and found a reliable answer in Acer Chromebook.
Randers’ teachers were particularly happy with this choice, because thanks to this upgrade, they could finally focus their attention on making a difference in the classroom rather than struggling with downtime and IT support. In the words of one of the school’s educators:
“The best thing about Acer Chromebooks is that it is the device that provides the most time for teaching and takes up the least space in terms of technology and support.”
Thanks to their long-lasting battery life, enhanced performance and elevated connectivity, Acer Chromebook Spin 713 made the perfect device to last through the most intense school days and teach effortlessly empowered by online resources. Plus, Acer Chromebook’s intuitive Chrome OS made digital learning easy for both tech-savvy teachers and also less experienced ones.
On the other hand, the young students of the school loved their new learning companions as well. Beyond their eye-catching design, their Acer Chromebook Spin 512 conquered them with the convertible design, that, together with the touch display, made their experience at school even more interactive and enjoyable.
Taking learning further with Acer Chromebook
Teachers from Randers’ School listed several reasons why their students enjoy their new Chromebooks so much.
For starters, unlike regular 16:9 displays, the Acer Chromebook Spin 512 offers more vertical screen space to read and visualise information, thanks to its 3:2 aspect ratio. That means less scrolling and time to focus! Its 12” display makes it a perfect fit for students’ backpacks while also saving space on the school desk to work along with notes and books. Plus, the versatile design of the Acer Chromebook Spin 512 allows students to learn and collaborate in different screen options, including clamshell, tablet, display and tent mode.
Moreover, kids being kids, things can get a little messy in the classroom at times. But that won’t be an issue: Acer Chromebook Spin 512 stands up to daily wear and tear thanks to its Military Standard durability and Corning Gorilla Glass. Its reinforced design protects the device from liquids on the keyboards and bumpers. Accidental falls or spills will no longer be a concern. On the other hand, durability is also reflected by the device’s long battery life. In fact, one charge is enough to get the students throughout the entire school day.
As mentioned above, teachers love most about the devices’ speed and connectivity. Acer Chromebook Spin 512’s fast boot time gets students learning quicker, and the simplified interface makes the Chromebooks easy to use, even for younger pupils. Acer Chromebook Spin 713, powered by Google for Education and Google Play™ apps, also stood by the side of Randers’ teachers during the remote learning period:
“We have been shut down for a short period of time, and we have been using them for online teaching. […] We’ve become very keen on sharing documents on Google Classroom.”
Last but not least, let’s not forget about security. Both Chromebooks come with built-in malware protection against online threats right out of the box. In other words, school and students’ data are always protected and safe.
