Google gets serious with education by offering Nexus tablets to schools


Google has been deeply involved in humanitarian work, particularly in the field of education. At Google I/O earlier today, the technology giant divulged its plans of bringing Android to schools. It's worth noting that Google has already contributed to the education sector by offering Chromebooks and Google Apps. But it wants to go deeper by announcing the Google Play for Education program.

Essentially, Google will be offering its Nexus tablets to schools. Also, by adding engaging educational content to these tablets, educators are better equipped in providing quality education to students in grades K-12. Teachers can also discover, purchase, and distribute content through Google Play for Education. Google is now inviting developers to create educational apps.
