What is a Chromebook?

A Chromebook is essentially a computer that runs on a Google web-based Chrome operating system (OS).  In the past computers primarily ran on either a Microsoft Windows, Mac or Linux operating system.  A big difference between the other operating systems and the Chrome OS is that the Chrome OS is dependent on connecting to the internet and running web applications. 
Chromebooks have been around for several years, but it’s only been within the last couple of years that developers have started focusing on using the Chrome OS in a k-12 environment.  With the numerous web applications that are now available for k-12, a Chromebook can be a useful tool in the classroom.
