Although I still live in Internet Explorer for the business side of education, my Google Chrome browser is my default browser for all educational activities with teachers and administrators. There are many advantages to using GChrome in education:
- It’s a simple interface
- Very fast upload on any device
- Efficient since I can also open specific webpages upon start up which is great for those sites that I utilize a lot (like our school division portal, GAFE dashboard, edublogs dashboard)
- Personalized since I can upload various apps and extensions that follow me wherever I sign into my Chrome account
It’s important to take some time yourself to look at using Google Chrome, personalizing it by visiting the Chrome webstore and then sharing this with your students. They can certainly benefit from the ability to have a browser that will work for THEM and be available on most devices.
