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.
