Educators participating in NYSCATE professional development workshops this summer will learn how to integrate Dell tablets and HMH’s SkillsTutor content into instructional practices.

In an effort to meet the evolving needs of educators, 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. SkillsTutor solutions support grades K-12 and adult education through engaging and personalized instruction covering more than 2,200 activities including reading, language arts, mathematics and science.

The alliance is designed to serve as a blueprint for others nationwide, bridging the gap between digital content, technology and professional development by engaging students through 21st century instructional practices.

"The ability to offer instruction and integration strategies on Google Android and Microsoft Windows platforms is very exciting," said Dr. Amy Perry-DelCorvo, CEO/Executive Director, NYSCATE. "Working in conjunction with Dell and SkillsTutor to demonstrate the power of mobile technology in schools is a win-win for everyone, most importantly our members."

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.
