If you are a parent in the Dollar Bay-Tamarack Area Schools, you've just gotten some good news: students are about to get their own Chromebooks. Well, sort of good news, since you get to foot the bill. While $200 is not expensive for a computer, it's about the right price to pay for a Chromebook. But what happens when the Chromebook is broken before it's even paid off? Maybe the school has an insurance policy for you to buy, too, but it's still a hassle, and mostly avoidable.
You can find plenty of soft and hard case covers for Chromebooks, but the one that works the best to keep the Chromebooks out of the shop are the Cranium Hard Case Screen Protector. These are PERMANENT solutions to the problem of a flexible screen. Kids will pick the machines up by the screen and drop books on the back on the screen. They might even bump into a desk here and there.
The problem with soft cases is bulk. The problem with most hard cases is that they are just colorful plastic. Think of a car. A soft case is like putting some foam on the steering wheel. The hard case is like putting some plastic on the bumper, and the Cranium is like wearing a seatbelt to protect your cranium. In fact, since it's put on with permanent tape, it's like a seatbelt you have to wear. One school district went from 20% breakage rate down to 1%. That means kids CAN still figure out a way to break a Chromebook; it's just a lot more complicated with a Cranium.
Contact Educabana if you are interested in a bulk order. In fact, if I was a parent in the district, I'd ask the district to make a bulk order to save a little on all the individual shipping orders for concerned parents in the Dollar Bay-Tamarack Area Schools.
But wait, there's more. The Cranium is also an awesome whiteboard. Some school districts make students buy these for math or test prep classes, and those cost nearly half the price of this Chromebook case alone.
