Choosing the right Chromebook for our students is a rigorous process

Each year the Manaiakalani Procurement Committee test devices provided to the Procurement Committee and these are rigorously evaluated by teachers, students, hackers and consultants to identify the preferred device to meet student requirements. Recommendations are based on best-value specifications, affordability, and durability.

Google Management Console

The digital management console allows the school to manage the safety and access of the Chromebook, restricting it to keep the focus on the learning and increasing the protection of students from inappropriate internet material.

What we achieve with the console

  • maximised learning time
  • support for teacher dashboard
  • ability to configure the Chromebook (applications/extensions) to maximise learning
  • ability to set up the Chromebook for different age groups of learners
  • opportunity to prepare and organise the Chromebooks for learning.
  • configuration and usage reporting eg disk space, memory, who has used the device etc
  • we meet organisational due diligence requirements
  • we can spread updates over time for the network, avoiding slow periods when all devices update at once
  • we can set devices to use stable google releases (ensures greater uptime)

The settings we will look to make are:

  • Internet Safe Search on
  • Youtube safe search on
  • Incognito mode disabled
  • Teacher Dashboard App loaded
  • Other settings to allow for smoother integration with the school network
