All students and many teachers in our district will be given a Chromebook as their ECS device. Chromebooks are like a cross between a laptop and tablet. They do not have all the software that laptops have, so they often have much faster processing speeds. They DO, however, still have a hard drive, so you can save files and access certain files when not connected to the internet. You can access any Google file offline (docs, sheets, slides, etc) as well as any file you marked as "available offline."
