To help budget-strapped classrooms across the U.S., for the holiday season, teachers can request the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook at a special, discounted price of $99 including hardware, management and support.
Full-time public school teacher in the U.S. can visit DonorsChoose.org and follow the instructions to take advantage of this opportunity by December 21, 2012. Their request will be posted on DonorsChoose.org - an online charity that connects donors directly to public school classroom needs - and where anyone can make a donation to support the classrooms. Teacher who reache their funding goals will receive their Chromebooks from Lakeshore Learning, DonorsChoose.org's fulfillment partner for this program.
Google says that more than 1,000 schools have adopted Chromebooks in classrooms, including some school districts like Richland School District Two (S.C.), Leyden High School District (Ill.), and Council Bluffs Community School District (Iowa) who have deployed Chromebooks to tens of thousands of students.
