Google announced that they will be launching Google Play for Education this summer. Google Play for Education promises to provide many of the features that teachers have wanted to have available through Android for a long time now. If you want to be one of the first to know when Google Play for Education is available, sign up here on the Google in Education page.
I think that the best part of Google Play for Education will be the ability for
teachers (or administrators) to purchase apps and push them out to all
of the devices in their schools. If the entire school is too big of a
group, the option to create smaller groups of devices will be available
too. Teachers will also be able to use Google Play for Education to push
video and documents out to all of the devices in a group.
