- for now Google Read & Write is disabled on all school desktops and laptops not including Chromebooks and newly re-imaged carts or labs (Mr. Verbeek’s lab for example has been re-imaged for google extensions). It will take time for this re-imaging to occur. The SD48 tech department is working as hard as they can to make this happen. This video will work for any of the re-imaged PC’s at your school. The only difference is that students will not be required to enter a password when at school.
