1. WHY GOOGLE?
That is why Swedish schools choose
Google for Education
Google for Education is growing and now has a leading position, not only in Sweden but in the whole world. Chromebooks are also in first place when Swedish municipalities and independent schools choose student computers. Workspace for Education is the world’s largest learning environment and is used by over 170 million students and teachers. With the best tools for teaching, pedagogy and communication, they can safely and securely work creatively together or independently. Data and privacy are always protected by Google’s security solutions, which have never been compromised. Schools that choose Chromebooks can also count on more than twice as many student computers for the same budget.

3. CHROMEBOOKS – YOU SAVE SO MUCH
Chromebooks – The school’s most cost-effective computer
Lifetime calculations show that the school gets more than twice as many Chromebooks for the same price than when buying other types of computer devices.
Chromebooks are designed for teaching and are the most optimal computers for all schools that use cloud-based services – Google Workspace for Education and Google Classroom or Microsoft 365. The computers start in a few seconds, are easy to use, fast, secure, durable and are available in several designs and price ranges to suit different budgets.
Save 60% with Chromebooks
Over a 3-year period, the cost of a Chromebook is 60% lower than other devices. So you get more than twice as many Chromebooks for the same price compared to if you buy other types of devices. In addition, a Chromebook needs 58% less handling time. The performance improvement also means, among other things.
|63% fewer reinstallations||72% less set up time|
|75% fewer reboots||59% less time for handling|
|73% faster reboots||54% less time pre-supported|
|51% fewer unplanned interruptions||65% less time for security|

Extremely secure computers!
Chromebooks share the same view of security and privacy as Google’s cloud-based services. They are extremely safe! The computers are protected with several layers of security against viruses and malware. If one layer is bypassed, the others are still active. Chromebooks spend as much as 10% of their startup time verifying that the device has not been tampered with. At startup, Chromebooks perform a check and repair themselves if the system has been damaged. Some examples of Chromebooks’ built-in security features include:
- Automatic updates: All updates of software and security features are performed automatically at no cost in the background
- Sandboxes: Chromebooks run every web page and application in a confined environment called “sandbox”. If a user browses an infected web page, the rest of the machine will not be affected.
- Encryption: Chromebooks use 128-bit encryption for all users.
- Theft protection: Stolen or lost computers can be blocked. If login restrictions are applied, the computer can only be used by the school’s students / teachers when they log in with their school accounts.
Implement Chrome OS in a Microsoft environment
Many schools have made the move from Windows and Microsoft 365 (Formerly Office 365) an environment with Chromebooks and Google Workspace for Education. In fact, today Chromebooks are at the forefront of education in the world. But you do not have to make a total move from Microsoft 365 to be able to take advantage of all the possibilities that Chromebooks and Google Workspace offer. Continue using your favorite applications like Microsoft 365 on Chromebooks. You also get access to all tools in Google Workspace and other software that is adapted to Chrome OS, such as the digital trial application ChromEx. Chromebooks handle sync with Microsoft Active Directory and you can choose which login method you want to use; Microsoft or Google.
