Jim O’Hagan weighed in on the Chromebook in an article at EdReach, “Chromebook is Cool, But…”, and he brought up two great points.

First, the Chromebook is effectively useless in special education. There are a plethora of tablet apps for special education, and the touch-screen nature of a tablet allows some special needs students to manipulate content effectively. A laptop restricted to web apps isn’t going to cut it.

Second, there are a number of privacy concerns about putting student data on the Cloud. Some schools won’t even touch Google Apps for this reason, and using a Chromebook where everything is on the Cloud is not going to sit well with them.

Give the article a read. Jim expands on these thoughts and it’s worth a few minutes of your time.
