Sony Electronics Launches K-12 Initiative, a Tablet Education Program

Sony has announced a new K-12 Education Initiative which focuses on helping schools easily integrate 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 360-degree solution includes support such as a real-time, online community where resources are continuously updated by a network of distinguished educators, software to manage and protect devices and information, user training and tailored programs for districts and schools.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S, the flagship device in the program, is uniquely positioned for the classroom curriculum, with features such as:

  • Android 4.0 (upgradeable to Android 4.1)
  • 9.4" high-definition screen
  • Compatible with existing PC and software solutions
  • Guest Mode allows teachers to restrict or grant access to specific apps
  • Full-sized SD card slot for expandable memory or easy file transfer
  • Extended service and accidental damage plans available

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 distinguished teachers, IT managers and specialists across the U.S. 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.
