A Connecticut high school has purchased 1,800 Google Chromebook laptop computers -- enough for each student to have access to a device. The devices, purchased with a grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation and through a state program, cost $270 each. "We bought a bunch of things and we started checking them out for students to use here in the library," Pamela Fontaine, a library media specialist, said of the process the school used to select the device. "This was the device that allowed them to do the things they needed to do."
