The most recent Tech Notes from TCEA announced a couple of interesting opportunities. TCEA has been granted exclusive rights in the state of Texas to administer free licenses of Google Sketch Pro to all K-12 educators and students. This is a great opportunity because it normally costs $495! This license is good for one year and may be renewed if needed. According to Tech Notes posted online, the licenses are available in the following formats:
- Individual Texas school lab networks (Windows and Mac); this will allow up to 300 simultaneous users on any given network.
- Imaging and installation on multiple laptops that need functionality both on and off of the school network (i.e. students with a laptop assigned to them).
- Stand-alone computers (Windows and Mac) for Texas educational non-networked machines. Please not that this i not a networked lab license, and will not run on a network.
