At ISTE 2023, CTL announced the availability of Spanish-language keyboards and ChromeOS on its popular NL72 series of Chromebooks. This new offering addresses the growing demand for more inclusive and accessible educational tools for Spanish-speaking students and educators in the United States.
Spanish language keyboards have a different layout and special characters than English, most notably including the Ñ key and keys for accent marks and punctuation.
"By offering a Spanish language keyboard option on our NL72 Series Chromebooks in the US, we hope to empower Spanish-speaking students and educators," says Erik Stromquist, CTL CEO. "While we see this as an excellent solution for ESL, dual-language, and Spanish immersion programs, we also see this as a way to promote a more diverse and accessible educational environment."
In addition to a Spanish-language keyboard option, CTL's NL72 series of Chromebooks offer a range of features designed to enhance the learning experience, such as rugged designs that have passed multiple Mil-Spec tests, long battery life, and an option for integrated public and private LTE cellular connectivity.
A popular brand for K-12 IT administrators, CTL offers a comprehensive suite of products and services that streamline IT department workflows and drive productivity while reducing operational costs. CTL's unique Chrome Advantage program delivers a stress-free experience for IT professionals, with easy device ordering, shipping, receiving, deployment, repair, and end-of-life recycling.
Schools and parents can order NL72 Chromebooks directly from CTL with Spanish-language keyboards pre-installed, ensuring that students have access to the tools they need for success in today's increasingly diverse and multilingual classrooms.
