ByinTablets | March 9, 2013

Tablets for SchoolsWe first heard about the Amlify tablet last year when the manufacturer, News Corp, started working on a project to bring tablets to schools. Since July the company has been cooperating with AT&T and testing the tablets in classrooms. Apparently the results of the tests are promising, since the device is now ready to launch beginning with middle schools. The tablet was officially presented today at an SXSWedu event led by Joel Klein, News Corp. executive vice president, former chancellor of New York City’s public school system, and an ardent supporter of tech-savvy classrooms.
