Samsung's Smart School Solution to provide 35 Note 10.1 units

Samsung announced today a new partnership with Memphis City Schools that will see the company's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet placed in classrooms to engender a more interactive learning experience. The partnership is the first deployment of the Samsung Smart School Solution at a US school, and Samsung hopes it will demonstrate the educational potential of its new stylus-driven tablet. The pilot program was officially launched at an event held at the Geeter Middle School last Friday,

Samsung will be providing 35 Galaxy Note 10.1 units to the 6th grade math class at Memphis' Geeter Middle School. The school will also be receiving a 65-inch interactive whiteboard and a wireless printer as part of the Smart School Solution package.

The package allows teachers to lead interactive lessons and real-time group activities through the touchscreen and to share content to students' devices. It also comes with learning management tools, allowing students to access course information and materials, school notices, and learning forums through the Note 10.1.

The educational possibilities of the Note 10.1 were among the most emphasized elements for Samsung at the tablet's unveiling in August. To show off those capabilities, the company set up a special segment of the showroom floor to host speakers from the education world to run through the Note 10.1's features and how teachers might use them in the classroom. The Note 10.1 comes with Kno learning software preloaded, and purchasers can use that app to download a range of textbooks with varying degrees of interactivity built in.
