Google has cut a deal with the New Zealand Ministry of Education to supply its Chrome notebooks to all students of state and state-integrated schools in the country.

Commencing from 1 November, all these schools will be able to start claiming Chrome Education licences to manage new and existing unmanaged Chromebooks, a blog post from Google's head of education for Australia and New Zealand, Suan Yeo, said.

The licence allows schools to update any number of Chromebooks using a cloud-based management console.

The blog post quoted Dorothy Burt, education program lead in the Manaiakalani Innovation team, as saying: "This is fantastic news for the Manaiakalani Schools.

"We have been using Chromebooks since they first became available to New Zealand schools in 2013 and have relied on the devices having the Chrome Education licence to ensure the focus remains on learning and teaching.”

She added: "The positive impact of the licence to schools is experienced in our big schools, with large fleets of Chromebooks to manage, and equally in our very small rural schools where the sole charge teaching principal has more important matters to focus on than the status of learner devices.”
