1000 Chromebooks have been delivered to high school students in Morgan County, Tennessee. It's a perfect test size to see the breakage rate. We'd guess over 50 of those Chromebooks will fail, often due to the flexible screen. However, the Cranium Chromebook Protector and Whiteboard can change that to 10 or less. And it's a whiteboard, great for teachers who know that surfing the web isn't always the best way to see what kids know.
If you want useful protection for all Chromebooks in the district, contact Educabana directly.
While the standard Chromebook size is normally smaller than your average laptop of a few years back, some large-screen Chromebooks are produced. If you have an HP 14" Chromebook, you have a really nice, wide screen. However, because Chromebooks are inexpensive, your screen is made the same way as the smaller computers, meaning there is some flex that could lead to the need for repairs.
Enter the Cranium Hard Case Protector and White Board for your HP 14" Chromebook. It functions to reinforce the screen where it's needed most. If you spent a little extra to get that oversized screen, you'll want to protect it from bending and breaking. The Cranium can do that.
If your school wants to order a large set of these protectors, please contact the seller here.
Students in Morristown, New Jersey, are using Chromebooks to learn. However, one thing we all learn when using Chromebooks is that thin plastic can bend a bit. We also learn it can be a hassle to fire up the computer for a quick note. The Cranium Hard Case Screen Protector and Whiteboard fixes this.
The Cranium makes the flexible screen stronger, decreasing breakage rates. It's also a whiteboard, great for test prep or quick notes. It's permanent and strong, yet not annoying like those large soft cases.

Rome City Schools will have Chromebooks soon, ordering enough of the devices for 3rd through 12th grade. It's a wise investment. Chromebooks, however, will sometimes break. Rome City Schools, in order to protect its initial investment, should consider the best way to protect the Chromebooks.
Some school districts use soft case covers, but students don't like the cumbersome briefcases. Other districts offer insurance plans or purchase coverage with the devices. The problem still remains that the Chromebooks are out of commission for a time. Some schools use hard plastic to protect the Chromebooks, but that's mostly just a decorative placebo.
If you pay taxes in Rome, Georgia, find out what the school district intends to do to protect the Chromebooks. One solution includes the purchase of the Cranium Hard Case Screen Protector and Whiteboard. It's made from PVC and aluminum, and it stops the flexible screen from bending, limiting breakage. It's also a whiteboard, which is sometimes just as useful as the Chromebook itself. The Cranium is a permanent, simple solution.

Lakeview Elementary School students in Negaunee are getting Chromebooks, and that's a good decision by local officials. Protecting Chromebooks reminds me a bit of what Uncle Mark said about Musky lures (and anyone from the UP should be able to follow this)--when he sells baits, his customers are happy when the $15 bait falls apart in the mouth of a monster fish, since it probably means a trophy. It's not that his baits just fall apart on their own. When the fish destroys the bait, the fisherman wins.
The same logic can be applied to the plastic protectors we buy for our smartphones. When you drop the phone, it's better to smash the cheap $10 plastic surround than the $500 phone itself. But what if the students in Negaunee and all over the UP could have something a little bit more permanent? What if it doubles as a whiteboard so the Chromebooks are twice as useful in the classroom? (It would be like a fishing bait doubling as a camera to take a picture of the trophy fish.)
The Cranium Chromebook Hard Case Screen Protector and Whiteboard is that kind of protection. It's permanent and effective at protecting the most vulnerable part of the Chromebooks, the somewhat flexible screen. Plus, the white surface is a premium whiteboard for use in math or test prep. Read more about the Cranium at educabana.com, and you can order them in bulk from the website, too, just like a lot of folks order a dozen Hellkat Shockbaits at a time.
Granted, the Cranium Chromebook Protector and Whiteboard would not have protected Chromebooks from being stolen from Providence Schools or local FedEx shipping locations. However, once those two entities resolve their issues and order new devices, Providence School District should really consider an extra layer of protection on the replacement order. That extra layer comes from Cranium hard case screen protectors. Maybe FedEx will even purchase a few hundred Craniums to smooth things over with the school district.

If you are a parent, teacher, administrator, or (especially) taxpayer in the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District, you will want to know more about the new Chromebooks delivered to students. The brand or model isn't the most important consideration, however, since that's all pretty equal. What's not equal is the protection. If Seaside High School is not using the Cranium Hard Case and Whiteboard, someone needs to use his or her cranium to do a little research about why it might be necessary.
Other hard cases are pretty plastic. Soft cases are cumbersome, and students toss them aside at every opportunity. The Cranium is a permanent solution that also acts as a whiteboard, and they protect against screen breakage. I have a Chromebook, and the screen bends and flexes a bit. With my Cranium, I can pick the Chromebook up by its screen, just like every high schooler known to mankind will do, with or without protection.

Large, soft cases are, in theory, a great way to keep Clearwater Schools' new Chromebooks from being destroyed. I've taught in a school with such cases, and there are some problems:
1. The cases are large, negating the awesomeness of small Chromebooks.
2. The cases need to be carried IN ADDITION to any books. This means students will either cram books into the cases, negating the awesomeness of the soft case, or students will leave their cases behind in classrooms because carrying two piles of stuff is cumbersome.
3. Students WILL take the computers out of the cases, making the cases virtually useless. Whether in the classroom, at home, or in order to cram the Chromebook in a school bag, if the Chromebooks can be removed from the cases, they will be removed.
4. Cases aren't cool. Sorry, case manufacturers, but your products have never been cool in any way, and kids like being cool.
If Clearwater Schools want to protect Chromebooks in those cases, then the Cranium Chromebook Screen Protector and Whiteboard is the obvious choice.

Clinton City is lucky enough to have Chromebooks, students who are excited to use them, and teachers who are adept at teaching with the devices. The only thing missing is proper protection for the computers. A news report showing students using the Chromebooks also showed a student stuffing a flexible-screen Chromebook into a storage container. The best option for class sets of Chromebooks is the Cranium from Educabana. It protects the most fail-prone part of the Chromebook.
Another great featureis that the Cranium doubles as a whiteboard. Sure, it's cool to have students take quick surveys, but teachers do not always have time for such uses of technology. Sometimes, it's just better to have students write an answer on a whiteboard. Simple.
