Breakage of the Chromebooks was an issue on the hardware end; we transitioned from 1:1 ownership (students taking them home) to 1:1 access during the day. This solved that issue.
Another issue is parent fear of too much tech. We have solved this through events like Tech Fest and through panel discussions, shared education experiences where parents and children learn about tech together. _
