Our district, like many others, is now 1:1 with Chromebooks for all teachers and students.
Before this, teachers had thin clients used for accessing a virtual desktop that also included Microsoft Tools. Thin clients are going away after this school year, and our math teachers are struggling with converting their Word and PowerPoint documents over to Google. Converting a Word or PowerPoint document that has Equation Editor in it changes the equation text into an image that can no longer be edited and the format of the entire document is usually affected. We are also investigating a good tool for math text for teachers to use in the creation of new Google documents going forward. We have been trying out Equatio.
Does anyone have a math department that is solely using Chromebooks? If so, what did the process for switching Microsoft documents to Google documents look like? Are there any extensions they are using to create new documents with math text? Are there any buildings that went the Chromebook route but kept PCs for the math department or any other specific departments?
Any information you can give is appreciated. Thank you!
