Chan’s Creative School has received the 50 Android tablets donated by Outblaze and Animoca in a social programme designed to reduce the digital divide and assess the impact of tablet devices in the learning environment.
Outblaze and Animoca believe that all children should receive exposure to mobile computing in the classroom in order to enjoy the learning and economic opportunities (short and long-term) associated with use of modern tablet technology. The affordable devices all run on Ice Cream Sandwich, Google’s latest Android operating system. Over the next several weeks we will evaluate the impact of touch-based mobile computing on the school and students.
On Animoca’s blog there are more photos of the devices being unpacked while the school staff wait to begin the training session. More info to come as the project gets under way.
