SMART Aligns with Google to Create Software Solution for Education

SMART Technologies Inc. has aligned with Google Inc. to create SMART amp™ collaborative learning software, a cloud-based education solution hosted on the Google cloud that takes advantage of Google’s newest cloud services. The software connects interactive displays, PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones while enabling teachers and students to collaborate in real time, do in-class assessment, connect to shared digital workspaces and interact with Web-based learning materials regardless of location or device.

Teachers and students log in to SMART amp software through their Google ID from any web browser. SMART amp software is integrated with Google Drive, allowing educators to share lesson materials with their class and students to share content with each other.

SMART amp collaborative learning software will be available in commercial release in April 2014 and is now in early stage trials in a number of schools. For more information, visit
