Description:

From its creation, the iPad has clearly been the tablet of choice in education;  However; tight budgets and the desire to be good stewards of state and federal funds require us to consider alternatives.  Is the Nexus a viable alternative to the iPad?  Based on price alone, the answer would be a resounding yes!   Is the answer the same when considering functionality and the availability of educationally relevant android apps?  Does this tablet meet the needs of students Pre through 21 or is it best suited for middle school and high school age students?  In this webinar, we will review the built-in features of the Nexus which are relevant to education, as well as consider the range of education Android apps
