Mobile Lab Updated with Chromebooks

S9GS Library-Media Center


30 new Chromebooks have replaced the old laptop computers in the mobile lab.


What exactly is a chromebook?

A Chromebook is a laptop of a different breed. Instead of Windows or Mac OS, Chromebooks run Google's Chrome OS. These machines are designed to be used while connected to the Internet, with applications and documents living in the cloud.

Chromebooks at S9GS

Chromebooks provide access to the Internet and access to Google Drive applications.

  • Chromebooks are completely web-based and function by logging in with school Google accounts.
  • Students will not have access to applications like the Microsoft office suite.
  • However, they will have access to all of the applications within their Google Drive.

More about "Browse as a Guest"

When browsing as a guest, the student will not have access to Google Drive or have a way to create/save documents, spreadsheets, or slides.

Signing Out / Logging Off


If a student does not sign out, then other students will have access to their ENTIRE Google Account! Make sure students ALWAYS sign out.

Even if they are browsing as a guest, they must always sign out.
