Google, a global technology leader focused on improving the ways people connect with information, will be a Silver Sponsor at this year’s IT Hot Topics Conference. Joining the Google team at IT Hot Topics Conference is one of the hottest items in K-12 education, the Chromebook.

Students, teachers, and administrators use this fast, simple, and easy to manage solution to access web applications and classroom resources. Since applications, school work, and device settings are stored on the cloud, multiple students can use the same Chromebook and still have their own personalized experience when they sign in.

For network administrators, Chromebooks have a centralized device management and a low total cost of ownership. With Google’s Chromebook Management Console, network administrators can update policies or application settings for a large batch of Chromebooks, whatever the size, with a few clicks. The Management Console also enables network administrators to track assets by assigning devices to specific students and faculty members.
