Google Chromebooks most favoured by educators: Survey

10 May 2017 4

Microsoft had announced a new education-oriented operating system called Windows 10 S last week along with a brand new Surface laptop. The company is reportedly planning to take on Google in classrooms.

However, the latest study reveals that Microsoft will need to work a lot harder to catch up to internet search giant Google in the education space. The study conducted by EdWeek reveals that Google is far ahead of its tech contemporaries. The company’s budget Chromebook remains the most popular school-provided device. The Chromebook is reportedly being used by 42% of educators and administrators, while 15% use PC laptops.


The report reveals that Google is the most trusted when it comes to learning by students. Google was chosen by 52% of the people during a hypothetical survey to choose a software to increase student achievement. Apple Education was the second most common choice at 13%, while Microsoft came in sixth out of eight companies and Amazon was only favored by 1% of educators.


“It is compatible with other educational sites and easy for students to access at home,” a Houston-area teacher surveyed by EdWeek wrote. “Many children don’t have computers, and Google makes it easy to do assignments from their phones.
