Chromebooks in Irving ISD
What are Chromebooks?
Chromebooks are laptops that run Chrome OS as their operating system. They are designed to be used primarily when connected to the Internet and virtually all of your data is backed up to Google Drive.
Irving ISD chose Chromebooks to put the best possible device in the hands of our students that would maximize in class use due to its outstanding battery life and boot-up time.
What if I'm using a Windows device in some classes?
In some classes you might use a Windows laptop and in others you might use a Chromebook. On the Chromebook device, almost all of your items will be stored in Google Drive. On the Windows device, items not created in Google Apps will need to be uploaded to Google Drive. Directions for how to do this can be found below.
