It seems that the folks over at Samsung are not in any danger at all of running out of ideas when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Tab range. In fact, Samsung has recently announced a new Galaxy Tab which was exclusively designed for education purposes. This particular tablet was introduced at FETC, where it will play nice with Google Play for Education. This new Galaxy Tab has been exclusively developed for education, where it will be made available for K-12 school deployments for the 2014-2015 academic year. It will be introduced as part of the Google Play for Education program, where this classroom-ready, 10.1” tablet will be able to offer simple set up as well as device management, in addition to access to curated educational content, and other features which will support dynamic, digital teaching and learning.
This particular education-specific Galaxy Tab tablet has been specially designed for integration with Google Play for Education, alongside Google’s content store for K-12 schools. With Google Play for Education, educators will be able to enjoy access to a wide selection of teacher-approved apps, books, and videos, so that they are able to deliver a more engaging and personalized learning experience to individual students. Teachers too, are able to perform a search for content by grade, subject and standard (including Common Core), make purchases using a pre-loaded school PO instead of a credit card, and deliver content to students’ tablets in a matter of seconds.
This particular Galaxy Tab for Education would offer students a 10.1” WXGA display, where one would be able to enjoy an exceptional viewing experience with a 16:10 aspect ratio that makes it perfect for viewing educational content.
