With regard to login: our kids log in to their Chromebooks each day with
their Gmail addresses and passwords. From then on, they log into other uses
(including Destiny) with 'log in with Google' instead of having a different
user name and password for each application. I know it's less secure than
it could be, but it keeps us sane. In our user group - K-4 - we would
otherwise spend all day waiting for students to log in!
