Google for Education – Breathing New Life into Old Computers

Come and join the Google for Education team for the afternoon, you can expect to learn more about Neverware’s CloudReady OS, technology that transforms old IT into Chrome machines. Given current budgetary pressures and compliance demands, it’s more important than ever to find practical solutions that increase secure, affordable access to technology in schools.
Google are invitinge Educators and IT admins to bring 1 old PC, Mac, or Netbook per school. They will be flashing these old devices with CloudReady, an operating system based on Google’s Chromium OS. CloudReady breathes new life into old hardware, enabling schools to get extra use out of devices that may otherwise collect dust.

At the end of the event, these devices will be returned to you as “new” fast, reliable CloudReady Machine(s). Please make sure your device is a 64 bit device and has an unlocked BIOS (Built in Operating System)
