Google launches “Google Play for Education”

At its I/O developer conference in San Francisco, Google announced Google Play for Education: a version of the Play store that is aimed and curated for young kids.

Google Play for Education will be organized by subject matter and grade level, making it easy for teachers to find exactly what they want to deploy. As part of the new initiative, Google will also offer schools a simpler way to download and distribute apps including a one click method for distributing apps to an entire school or classroom.

Each app has been recommended by educators, [which] is key because teachers trust other teachers,” Chris Yerga, an engineering director at Google said. And teachers will also be able to see reviews from other teachers.

Another great feature includes the ability for teachers to remotely send apps and games to students’ devices. This is a key feature that would be ideal for those moments when you assign a student homework that requires an app or if you just want them to have a helpful resource they can refer to. And if it’s a paid app or resource, teachers can purchase them using a school-controlled account of funds.

Google Play for Education will be available this fall (presumably in time for the new school year), but app developers can start submitting apps by this summer.
