Is your school using mostly tablets (like iPads) or desktops/laptops?
We still have desktops. I know of 2 teachers who have tablets, but received them through donors choose.
However, ALL classrooms have Prometheans, and some have smart boards, too.
Although we have Ipads, they are used more like pacifiers, so I don't us them. I do, however, love the Chromebooks, as do the students. So many ways to use them.

Teachers have a choice of desktop or laptop, students 2-12 have chromebooks.
IPADs--We share a full class set with other classes each week.
Equal amount of each
Students all get a desktop but can earn a tablet if they maintain a certain GPA.
We're relatively low tech. We have a computer lab with desktops, but no technology in the classroom. My dream classroom would have a laptop, netbook, or tablet for every kid. Classrooms need to catch up with the rest of society.
Does anyone know if Chromebooks can run Adobe Flash?
Chrome books and iPads here. Every class gets so many Chrome books, and class sets of iPads can be checked out.
I don't see that as a problem, since Adobe Flash is just a type of software.
Yes, but iPads can't!
We have Chromebooks (which I LOVE) and iPads, but not a class set of either. We have a computer lab with iMacs we use when everyone needs a computer at the same time.

We are a 1:1 iPad school for K-12 students but also have several macbook air laptop carts and dedicated desktops throughout our campus for the professional applications (i.e. Adobe Creative Suite/Photoshop, Final Cut Pro).
We got rid of the computer lab and pushed technology into the classrooms for true integration.
My school has an up to date tech lab with about 30 desktops. We ave three laptop carts for classroom use, about a dozen iPads, 2 desktops in every classroom plus ach teacher has a laptop. We ave Smartbards and doc ams in every classroom.
No adobe flash on chrome book. I use it for work, though there are some things on my students' curriculums that I can't access.
I have a laptop but it's still a nightmare.
There's some 20 wires I feel like connected to the darn thing. A doc camera, speakers, docking station, projector. It's just a hot mess of wires everywhere
I have 4 desktops for student use in my room.
