Rolling Out With Google Play for Education – Getting Smart by Alison Anderson – 1:1, EdTech, GAFE, Google, mlearning, tabs | Getting Smart

google-featureThe news broke a few weeks back that Google Play for Education was ready for teachers. Being a faithful user of all devices Apple, I was not sure if I should really “go there” and try and dig into what Google now has to offer teachers implementing devices in the classroom. Really, my mind is pretty full – with the App Store, Apple configurator, iPads and iPad minis, maybe I should just stick to what I know.

Then I had the opportunity to Hang Out with Google Play for Education gooru, Rick Borovoy and the Director of technology from Hillsborough Township, Joel T. Handler and my mind was changed. Immediately.

Together, everyone could open the boxes and take out the tablet. During that the time the teacher would have enough to time enter their own admin code. After that, all that’s needed is a quick circle around the room, bumping tablets to configure- and everyone is ready to go.
