Why Chromebooks (and not iPads) for Education?

I made this video in response to an email I get frequently that asks why Chromebooks are better for education than iPads. I feel strongly that Chromebooks (or laptop form factor) computers in general are a better choice right now because of the potential for students to create, as opposed to consume, content. Creating content helps me learn every single day, and I know it helps students learn too. I hope this video helps; don't label me an iPad hater. I love mine AND my iPhone AND my Mac, but when I get ready to create content, I head to a laptop form factor device. Watch the video and I'll show you why.
