Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced the availability of the new Galaxy Tab® 4 Education, its first tablet designed to support scalable 1:1 computing initiatives in K-12 schools. The rugged 10.1-inch tablet, which integrates with Google Play for Education and can be managed via a web-based console, is available now for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Through integration with Google Play for Education, the new Galaxy Tab gives educators access to teacher-approved apps, books and videos. For districts seeking to scale up 1:1 initiatives, a web-based console – available from Google for $30 per device for school districts – enables IT administrators to manage and update the fleet of devices, freeing up resources for technology training and development.
Additionally, Samsung announced that the Galaxy Tab 4 Education will be compatible with a future upgrade to Samsung School, its interactive classroom management solution that combines with classroom displays and other technology.
