Keyboarding skills are a must

Chrome Show: Common Core and Chromebooks vs. iPads

News of more Chromebooks than iPads sold to U.S. schools in the third quarter isn’t terribly surprising; we’ve noted the trend several times this year. With tight budgets and lower-cost computers that meet most needs in the classroom, Chromebooks are a good choice. So too are iPads but they don’t have a keyboard, which could have some impact as well due to Common Core education standards being adopted by states.

We chat about that as well as Google’s Android app strategy on Chrome OS, plus a handy hidden feature in Chrome for Android on this week’s podcast.
