Sony launches tablet education program for schools

Sony Electronics has announced a new K-12 education initiative that focuses on helping schools easily integrate mobile devices into the classroom, allowing teachers and administrators to better harness the power of tablet and mobile technologies for education.

The program not only includes access to tablets and other devices at special pricing, but also provides schools with additional services and support needed for long-term success. The solution includes a real-time, online community where resources are continuously updated by a network of educators, software to manage and protect devices and information, user training and tailored programs for districts and schools.

In addition to access to special tablet pricing, educators can also utilize the Sony Education Ambassador (SEA) community, a free online destination that provides solutions for educators looking to implement technology in the classroom and fosters dialogue about how technology can enhance student learning.

A group of teachers, IT managers and specialists have been tapped to be Sony Education Ambassadors. They have been equipped with Sony devices and have been trained on how to best use these devices in the classroom.

Using their expanding online influence, the SEAs will educate and provide resources to other educators using the online community and their social networks. Resources range from instructional videos to lesson plans that align with a wide array of instructions, including Common Core State Standards.
