    Google Chrome and Apps in school

    Outside of work I always use google chrome, I also use it on my computer at work as it's my browser of preference and I'm not going to start the argument of IE vs Chrome.
    During a quiet period this afternoon I've began looking at the Chrome web store and the apps seem pretty good. Does anyone here use chrome apps in their schools for students? Most of them appear to integrate with google drive which I havn't really looked into either but I do see chrome being useful.

    Haven't really used them yet, but there's quite a few apps/website that will integrate accounts, and google drive, which is great as once you've SSO/synced AD with Google Apps for Education (free), the pupils don't have to create accounts for, say, aviary.com

    It'd definitely the way forward, I wouldn't pay for a website subscription for something that doesn't integrate with it.

    The apps for education stuff sounds great just starting to read up on it.

    A few chrome apps which look pretty decent for edu use including wevideo, autodesk, lucidchart and autocad wds. Google drive integration sounds great mavhc but i'm not sure if the LEA would approve of the cloud storage for pupils work and the single point of failure left with the ISP. Chromebooks anyone?

    You can aggregate two broadband providers to avoid avoid a single point of failure - preferably one cable and one ADSL to avoid two ADSL connections going through the same telephone connection.

    Sorry - "the same telephone SUBSTATION" not "the same telephone connection".
