Introducing Google Play for Education, the online destination where schools can find the right tablet content and tools for their students and teachers.
With easy bulk ordering for groups, schools will be able to purchase and instantly distribute apps, videos, and books right to their students’ devices.
The Google Play team looks forward to seeing you create first class content that will help schools. We want to help you create innovative educational apps, without having to knock on school doors to reach teachers and students.
With Google Play for Education, teachers and administrators will be able to browse content by curriculum, grade, and standard — discovering the right content at the right time for their students. If your app offers an exciting new way to learn sixth grade algebra, we'll make it easy for math educators to find, purchase, and distribute your app to their classes.
Reach more schools and students
Google has built a strong network of K-12 schools who are already using Google Apps for Education and other Google services. These schools are excited and looking forward to bringing your apps and content into their classrooms with Nexus tablets.
With the wide launch of Google Play for Education later this year, educators will be able to make high-volume purchases using standard institutional payment mechanisms and distribute them to the students they want — whether it is a class of 30 or a district of 30,000.
Android tablets in the classroom
Google Play for Education brings the innovation of Android technology into classrooms. Educators can set up and deploy large numbers of devices in just minutes or hours rather than days.
Powerful browsing tools let educators quickly discover apps, books, videos, and other content—with many recommended by teachers and categorized according to familiar Core Curriculum standards.
Bulk purchase with institutional payment
Convenient purchasing and delivery tools let educators buy apps in bulk using purchase orders and other payment methods that are easy for schools to manage.
Over-the-air delivery to student devices
After finding apps they want to use, educators can push them instantly to student devices over the air. They can send the apps to individuals or groups of any size, across classrooms, schools, or even districts.
