Chromebook And Google Apps For Education Get Approval For NYC Schools

After getting Google leading the pack in terms of tablets and notebooks sold to K-12 education providers, both domestically some countries like Malayasia, now it is set to expand the ground. Google has been approved to provide Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education to the New York City Department of Education. The NYC CIO has signed on with google, Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education, as part of their approved and supported (from an IT standpoint) tools for this school year. There is  NYC DoE Google Apps for Education Resource Center that helps teachers or anyone in their districts to get started.
This is very good for Google because now it can reach out to another 1 million plus students, in 1,800 schools with approval.
Google also worked hard on their end to ensure that Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education worked, properly by working with OEMs who built Chromebooks to ensure that the devices meet the standard.
