Touchscreen Chromebooks, Are they Worth It?

I had a student in my office the other day that needed help with his personal Chromebook. In the process of helping him, I asked him if his Chromebook was touchscreen. To his surprise, it was a touchscreen Chromebook and he had no idea.

Since I have not encounter these devices before, this understandably peaked my curiosity. This also raised some questions for me:.

  • What is (are) the benefit(s) of having a Touchscreen Chromebook?
  • What impact will touchscreens have on student learning?
  • How will the touchscreen stand up to daily use by students?

So far, I have not seen much information about touchscreen Chromebooks in education.
