Protecting education technology hardware is crucial for both safeguarding the financial investment and maintaining the ability to use the technology to advance teaching and learning. With Google’s Chromebook dominating the education and classroom marketplace, Belkin is launching a new protective case for the Chromebook, specifically designed for classroom and student use – the Air Shield.

The unique features of the Belkin Air Shieldinclude:

·Purpose-designed engineering, inside and out, to guard against damage from drops, bumps and impact

·An interior shock-absorbing suspension system which centers and positions the device, ensuring that the rugged structural case always stays on while allowing complete access to the Chromebook’s ports, keyboard and entire display

·Slim deign that makes it an easy fit for backpacks and charging carts

·When not in use, side storage feature frees valuable desk space

·Universal fit for most 11-inch Chromebooks and compatible laptops and Ultrabooks

The military-grade protection standards of Air Shield – Mil Standard 810G – will fare well in even the most challenging student settings. Tested and certified by independent laboratories,defined by test method IEC 60950, the case is dropped a total of 26 times on each corner, the face and edge and a 1.1lb weight is dropped from more than four feet directly on top of the protected device. This level of testing ensures against screen damage and other costly repairs or replacements.

“Kids are tough and technology is expensive,” said Jon Roepke, director of product management for Belkin Education. “The best education technology in the world won’t do anything if it’s damaged. And no one can afford to be constantly replacing things. That’s why products like the Air Shield are an essential part of the ed tech adaption process. We are confident that teachers, administrators and others will see the real value in this tough new product that helps protect technology.”
