ISTE 2011: Making Slates Work for Schools
Just about every school is looking at slate computers to replace notebooks and desktops, but few have thought about getting special software that can make this platform a better educator. That is, until SK Telecom, the South Korean telecom giant. The company introduced its T Smart Learning platform at the show and there was generally a crowd of teachers packed around to see it in action. The program is chock full of tools to teach, set educational goals, prioritize work, schedule assignments and involve parents. There’s even a digital library with tons of basic and supplemental material. In other words, T Smart can be the modern day equivalent to the loose leaf notebook. On top of monitoring and managing a child’s progress, the software lets parents look in and see how their little student is doing. See it at booth 2331.
