Yesterday, Wheels on the Bus was featured at Google I/O during the unveiling of a new platform, Google Play for Education. According to TechCrunch.com, Google Play for Education will extend Google Play, its application and content marketplace for Android, into the classroom in hopes of simplifying the content discovery process for schools. It will allow schools to search for content by subject matter and grade level and provide content that has been recommended by other educators.
With education being one of the founding pillars for all Duck Duck Moose mobile apps, we were thrilled to learn of Google’s efforts to assist schools and teachers. We are excited to be included in their efforts and look forward to the official launch of Google Play for Education in the fall.
