Google Play for Education could kill the iPad in schools
VentureBeat
Google released a major new education program today that organizes and manages the way teachers push apps, books, and other learning content to student tablets.

John Pearce‘s insight:

Because of the ease of access and organization for ‘time poor teachers’, this initiative could be a real challenge to Apple and iOS devices in schools. Whilst it will have huge appeal it also has the potential to continue the paradigm where the teacher/school knows best as opposed to learning spaces where students begin to identify apps/objects and learning approaches that best suit themselves. It does however a clear challenge to Apple to re-look at how they deal with education.
