Google Announces Google Play for Education

Google Play Education

Google said during Google I/O 2013 that educators put the task of bringing affordable and practical mobile tech to school systems. Google agreed, and today announced Google Play for Education. A teacher can choose an application and it can be installed on every student’s Android device. Schools can set a budget and purchase bulk orders for apps, books, YouTube educational videos and more and push everything to tablets.

There are already pilot sites using the new technology, six elementary schools in New Jersey used 550 different third party apps in a single day pilot. Google’s bringing it to schools but now it wants developers to focus on creating the awesome and innovative educational content.

Google Play for Education will launch in the fall but apps can be submitted this summer.
