Our world is always changing, and the way that children are being taught is also evolving everyday. Motorola Mobility believes in empowering students with innovative technology to help them not only learn better, but have more fun doing it. So earlier this year, we gave students at one San Diego high school Motorola XOOM tablets to see what would happen.
The school administrators deployed the tablets in math and science classes, and for students who had been identified as having learning challenges. Teachers are finding that these students are now more excited about learning than ever – through hands-on activities, educational games, and digital books.
According to Bruce Cochrane, Executive Director of Pupil Services for San Dieguito Union High School District, “San Dieguito Union High School District has been working to redesign our schools to represent 21st century classrooms, and bringing tablet technology to our students was one of the first projects we initiated in order to meet that mandate.” When asked why Motorola XOOM, he responded that “Motorola XOOM tablets were the most logical choice not only due to their highly usable design, but also due to the tight integration of the hardware with the Honeycomb OS; our district is moving to Android and applications such as Google Docs, so the Motorola XOOM was an ideal platform to be able to share capabilities across all devices for teachers and students alike.”
