Yes you have to have a licence for each Chromebook (got about 90 onsite and another 60 about to be ordered). The licences cost £19 unless someone can tell me a cheaper place to get them.
Oh and you have to buy at least 5 (or is it 6?). I often try to have a few extra just incase.

We're still having issues getting ours through the Smoothwall... We can put our Google username/password and it goes off and then returns a "Network is not available" error but if we put the incorrect password in then Google returns that we entered an incorrect password. So it goes off ok but then won't allow the Chrome book to get any further than the sign-in page.
We've entered the below into an authentication exception:
Anyone got any ideas?Code:gstatic.com/generate_204 accounts.google.com clients3.google.com talk.google.com drive.google.com googleapis.com ssl.gstatic.com docs.google.com drive.google.com googleusercontent.com
Chromebooks will let you do 802.1x authentication on a per-user basis... that may be an option with the ruckus gear.
Be aware that putting stuff in auth exception does *not* mean it is automatically allowed: quite the opposite, you can find that depending on your rules these sites now get blocked because the user browsing is in "unauthenticated users". The policy test tool can prove this if needed.
I think Chromebooks in a school is a great idea and a way to ween people off being tied to a domain to get access to what they want/need to do, etc.
I would also promote them for KS4 and KS5 students but go with tablets for KS3 where they are exploring more whereas the former need to type reports, etc.
I use a Chromebook myself as it's so quick to be ready to use.
