People's Choice winner. PCs have a long history in education. We will pit the PC against the new kid on the block. Join us for giggles and laughs as we present conversations between a Windows PC and a Chromebook reminiscent of the “I’m a Mac and I’m a PC” commercials of 2006-09.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Our purpose is to describe to educators the different instructional environments between a Chromebook classroom and a PC classroom. We will be discussing their capabilities as well as their reliability. Understanding the differences between devices can help educators choose the most appropriate devices for their classrooms. We have deployed over 20,000 Chromebooks in our district which until the last few years has been a predominately PC environment.


We will show a series of quick 30 to 60 second videos we created that compare PCs and Chromebooks in an entertaining format. After each video we will discuss each specific topic in detail. We will share our experiences with each platform in regards to their capabilities, reliability, cost, and performance in the classroom. We will also cover the overhead costs for setting up and maintaining the integration of devices for use in instruction. We will spend 5 to 10 minutes discussing each topic.
