    Hassle Free

    The CTL® Education Chromebook* is hassle-free right out of the box—teachers and students can get up and running quickly. They get their own personalized apps, settings, and bookmarks when they log-in. It works with Chromecast*1 so teachers can stream media from their Chromebook to a TV for the whole class to see.

    Built-in Applications

    The Google Apps* suite gives students the tools to create and collaborate virtually on presentations, reports, and spreadsheets. Students can access and share their work anywhere via Google Drive* and it’s always backed up. Teachers can easily monitor student progress and streamline communications.

    Unique Features that Promote Learning

    The rotatable camera supports scientific inquiry activities along with giving students flexibility in how they capture images and video. A student can rotate the camera away to re- cord a science experiment or capture video of other students doing a skit or presenting a report. A student can rotate the camera up to closely examine a leaf. The integrated micro- phone also rotates with the camera to better capture sound.

    The optional snap-on lens attaches to the rotatable camera to provide 30x magnification—enough to clearly see the color of a fruit fly’s eye or the crystal structure on raw sugar.

    The retractable handle makes the device easy to carry and less likely to be dropped. A student can also “hook” the device onto their cubby or locker. The anti-glare screen produces less reflection under florescent lights and near classroom windows, reducing student eyestrain.

    Fast, Smooth Performance

    The CTL Education Chromebook delivers fast, smooth performance—which means more time for teaching and learning. Students can load content-rich webpages quickly, watch videos with brilliant playback, run graphic- intensive scientific simulations, and multitask effortlessly.
