NY ed tech group adds tablet training

Educators participating in NYSCATE professional development workshops this summer will learn how to integrate Dell tablets and HMH’s SkillsTutor content into instructional practices. NYSCATE (New York State Association for Computers and Technologies in Education) is a non-profit educational association whose mission is to assist educators in integrating appropriate technologies in education.

NYSCATE will expand its workshops to use Dell’s Inspiron duo convertible tablet with Microsoft Windows 7 and Dell Streak 7 tablet with Google’s™ Android 2.2, with increased options as Dell expands its tablet portfolio.

SkillsTutor software loaded on each tablet will integrate into technology infrastructures and learning environments while enabling educators to access large amounts of previously inaccessible digital content on industry-standard platforms.
