Google Play For Education Now Available For Chromebooks

Google  is expanding Google Play, its portal for Andriod apps, from tablets to include Chromebooks. Google Play for Education, much like iTunes U, narrows down the app selection to choices specific to education. Chromebook users will have access to Google’s library of books and videos. Another cool function of Google Play is that schools can set up user accounts with Google, giving teachers buying power, up to a set limit.
