Welcome Acer as an EdTechTeam Diamond Partner!

I will never forget my first computer. I can remember unwrapping it on Christmas morning and excitedly connecting it and turning it on. The new plastic smell still brings back those memories of pajamas and the satisfying experience of removing the plastic covering the monitor screen.

Many years later I had a similar experience when I opened my first Chromebook. I can remember being just as excited to learn all I could about this new type of device that pundits downplayed and edtech folks clamored to get. My first Chromebook was an Acer, and it was wonderful. The device booted quickly and the battery seemingly lasted for days on end. I bought Acer Chromebooks for my daughters, both for school and for fun.

Here at EdTechTeam, attendees often ask us which Chromebooks we recommend. Until now, we had not had an official answer to that question. Today, that changes. We are thrilled to announce that Acer has signed on as a Diamond Partner of EdTechTeam events around the world! We have had the chance to test out their newest devices and it is clear that Acer’s dedication to quality has not wavered.

In fact, you will soon be able to try out their newest, super fast devices at our events. We will be hosting the Acer Innovation Lab at select events in the U.S. We look forward to working with Acer to bring you the very best of learning. Also check out the latest Chromebook features coming out being announced at Bett2017 this week!
