Educational Tablet » Educational Tablet | Tablets for Kids | Android for Education | Scoop.it
LeapFrog is known for their amazing educational toys and now they have created an educational tablet for kids.

 

Personally, I'm waiting for an education library to be available for schools and students to share and download apps for themselves on reasonably priced tablets. At least the tide in going in the right direction though.

4 Ways Mobile Tech Is Improving Education

4 Ways Mobile Tech Is Improving Education | Android for Education | Scoop.it
With Internet in the palm of our hands, educators are looking to mobile as the next big tool for schools.

United Nation’s International Telecommunication Union estimated that there were 5.3 billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide at the end of 2010 — and that a full 90% of the world population now has access to a mobile network. In contrast, only about 2 billion people have Internet access.Students around the world are increasingly bringing their own mini-computers (or some connected device) to class. Whether this creates a distraction or a boon to learning is debatable, but these four uses of mobile phones in education — and countless others — could one day help prove the latter.

E-Rate Puts Spotlight on Internet Safety - Digital Education - Education Week

E-Rate Puts Spotlight on Internet Safety - Digital Education - Education Week | Android for Education | Scoop.it
The Federal Communications Commission has released an order that will require schools to educate students about Internet safety in order to comply with the federal E-Rate program, which provides funding for schools to achieve online connectivity.
The requirement comes from language in the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, which was signed into law as a part of the Broadband Data Improvement Act in October 2008.

 

Globally schools face the same issues. Is legislation the way to solve it? Perhaps.
