Introducing Tablets with Google Play for Education


Nowadays we’re launching tablets with Google Play for Training for Ok-12 faculties within the U.S. For the previous 5 months, hundreds of scholars and greater than 50 colleges have used Google Play for Schooling and shared their experiences as a part of our beta application. What’s been clear from their comments is that academics and IT directors want time-saving options to lend a hand their college students study in the study room and clean the transition to new curriculum requirements. They’ve requested for one thing simple to arrange and handle, that helps them to find instructional content material they may be able to belief, and that doesn’t spoil the financial institution.

Google Play for Schooling is an extension of Google Play designed for faculties. Right here educators can discover apps approved by teachers for teachers, as well as educational videos and a collection of classic books for their classroom. Teachers can search for approved apps by grade, subject and standard, including Common Core, pay using a purchase order, and deploy the content to students instantly. We’ve been working with top developers to bring the best educational apps to Google Play for Education, including ClassDojo, Socrative, Explain Everything, NearPod, and many more.

Schools can choose from three classroom ready tablet options: Nexus 7 (a 7” tablet) available today, and the ASUS Transformer Pad (a 10” tablet) or the HP Slate 8 Pro (an 8” tablet), both available early next year. Schools can set up a classroom of tablets in minutes with a few simple taps. Just hold the administrator tablet together with the student tablet to set up each device quickly. Tablets with Google Play for Education are built on Google Apps for Education so students use their Google accounts to log in seamlessly. Tablet pricing starts at $229 and management is $30 per tablet.

The passionate educators and talented students at New Jersey’s Hillsborough Township Public Schools were amongst the first to roll out tablets with Google Play for Education. Watch their story.
