Challenge

C2E technology leaders 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.

Solution

Android tablets for first, second and third-grade classrooms (students aged 6-9) encourage creative thinking by teachers and students, and new ways to get information – such as sharing photos from a student's trip to India or using an online Hangout to talk to a real-live World War II veteran.
