Tablets offering educational content are not new; it is in fact emerging as a separate tablet market segment. News Corp and AT&T signed up a partnership deal for developing interactive curriculum content for an innovative tablet meant for educational purposes. News Corp educational division is rebranding Amplify as their educational unit. The unit aims to develop products and services specifically meant for classrooms which range from even kindergarten to high school. These educational services will be provided through Amplify Tablet which appears to be a modified version of Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Amplify educational tablets will be a real asset to the students of US schools in boosting up their learning experience. This tablet comes enriched with numerous apps meant specifically for day to day learning and also some entertainment apps to swipe off the study boredom. The highly interesting apps with this tablet include encyclopaedia entries, books, videos, and also remote tutoring apps. All these advanced apps will be just a tap away.
The ultimate goal of Amplify educational unit is to bring in new contribution in the areas of digital content, analytics and assessment, and also in engaging with new distribution platforms. The forthcoming tablet will include Mathematics, English language, and also science content. The tablet will also comprise social tools, entertainment video and also interactive games as tools to learn with joy.
AT&T will play the role of providing 4G tablets with WiFi, technical support and also 4G connectivity facilities. There is no news like the physical dimensions and design of the tablets. We can expect that the tablet will be featuring a brilliant design so as to make it a convenient tablet for the young students out in US schools.
The first trial run of these Amplify tablets in conjunction with News Corp and AT&T will most probably by the 2012-2013 school year in US. There is no idea on the price too for enjoying these innovative tablets. Amplify is hoping that their forthcoming slates will give good competition to the other educational tablets available in the market.
