Wouldn't it would be quite cool if the full version of Google Earth Pro (now free to everyone: https://plus.google.com/+OllieBray/posts/9QJaDRkRZqy) came built into a Chromebook. Technically this should be possible and it would be an awesome addition to Chromebooks for Education.

At the moment you can access a lot of the features in Google Earth using Google Maps on your Chromebook. But things like the historic imagery layer, measuring tools and tour tools are sadly missing.

There is a semi work around by using the site (http://googleearthforchromebook.com) which is pretty good for classroom demos and students can also gather images for projects etc. by taking a screenshots.

Network administrators like to block googleearthforchromebook.com so it is worth making sure that it is unblocked before planning to use it with a class. There is also a slight lag as technically you are using Google Earth on someone else's computer (which is normally on a computer in the US - some 5000 miles away!).

Some of the classic Google Earth Features still don't work properly like the ability to save a tour or to record audio. But, other than that it is a pretty good work around. It works pretty well on an Android or iOS device as well as (as App version of Google Earth is not a full version of the software).

Anyone got any other work arounds?

Since I've spent the past four years working on ChromeOS (linux kernel, not the browser), I have been asked about "When is Android and ChromeOS going to merge?"

This article captures the essence of current merging:
   "Google has also released tools for any Android developer, not just Google's chosen few, to bring their apps to Chrome OS."

Another addition to the avalanche of Rockchip Chrome devices unveiled yesterday, this one from American computer company CTL.

Pitched at education, the j2 and j4 models feature the RK3288-C processor found in the Chromebit, Chromebook Flip, C201, etc inside a rugged casing designed to withstand classroom wear and tear. 

Pricing is cheap too.
