San Antonio Independent School District has deployed Dell Latitude 10 tablets running Microsoft Windows 8 across 33 of its 90 campus libraries. This deployment is the first phase of the district’s literacy initiative supporting students' exploration of learning outside the classroom and connection to Big Universe, an integrated literacy platform.

The tablet has a snap feature that runs applications side-by-side enabling students to take notes simultaneously while reading.

“The Dell Latitude 10 tablets give our students a device for self-directed learning and literacy that enables them to go beyond the text and pursue their own interests and intellectual curiosities,” said Marcos Zorola, Chief Information Officer, San Antonio Independent School District. “Dell’s solution is the best for our school district’s libraries because they not only deliver a great user experience, but the tablets are compatible with the library infrastructure simplifying their deployment and management.”
