These six very capable Android tablets come at a fraction of the price. By Eugene Kim August 22, 2012 0 CommentsGoogle 1 Share 29 Tweet 18 Submit 9230 Share 0 Pin It 0 EmailPrint It's that dreadful time of year again. Your beach tan is slowly fading and the warm days of carefree existence are quickly slipping away-it's time to get back into the school groove. A shiny tablet, like the New Apple iPad, might help cure those back-to-school blues, but that $500 entry price likely has your student checking account shuddering in fear. The thing is, though, you can get a very capable tablet that lets you watch videos, hit Facebook and Twitter, read books (even textbooks!), and do much more, for less than half the price of an iPad. The first question is: Do you even need a tablet? The short answer is probably not. If your intentions are strictly academic, which, ahem, I'm sure they are, then a simple laptop should do you fine. Tablets lack physical keyboards, have relatively small screens, aren't very good at multitasking, and have limited printer support-all crucial needs for the budding scholar. But there's more to school than academics. In between all those carbonated beverages, you'll want to unwind with your favorite TV shows, movies, music, and games-and that's exactly where tablets excel. They're lightweight, easy to use, fast and responsive, and perfect for media consumption. Plus, there's an ever-growing selection of apps at your disposal to help your tablet do even more.

    "Presented by Marie Bjerede, Founder, e-Mergents and Project Manager, Learning Un-Limited,  with Tzaddi Bond, 5th Grade teacher from Portland, OR With educational technology, it's not about the technology…except when it is. Join us on October 17th for our community's next webinar where we'll see how the availability of Android mobile devices for every student in Tzaddi Bond's 5th grade classroom removed obstacles to independent learning. Marie Bjerede, Founder of e-Mergents and Project Manager at Learning Untethered, will discuss how Tzaddi's students shifted towards a greater sense of agency, deeper learning, and more sophisticated achievement. Tzaddi will share how she was able to make bigger shifts in practice towards a "guide on the side" model of teaching and learning that would not have been possible without the Android devices. During the session, they also will describe the practices and policies that drove improved student outcomes. Co-hosted by edWeb.net and CoSN Sponsored by AT&T and the USC Rossier School of Education Visit the Mobile Learning Explorations community"
