Challenge to Excellence Charter School (C2E) Uses Android Tablets with Google Play for Education to Support K-3 Learners

The educators at C2E wanted younger learners to benefit from flexible and fun classroom tools, while learning the knowledge-seeking skills that would serve them well in later school years. They adopted Android tablets with Google Play for Education for first, second, and third-grade classrooms. The new tools have helped encourage creative thinking by teachers and students, and new ways to get information — like sharing photos from a student’s trip to India, or using an online Hangout to talk to a real-live World War II veteran.
