In five years, Google has helped upend the sales methods companies use to place their products in classrooms. It has enlisted teachers and administrators to promote Google’s products to other schools. It has directly reached out to educators to test its products — effectively bypassing senior district officials. And it has outmaneuvered Apple and Microsoft with a powerful combination of low-cost laptops, called Chromebooks, and free classroom apps.
"How Google Took Over the Classroom" is from the May 13, 2017 Technology section of The New York Times. It was written by Natasha Singer and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
