Sony has launched a new K-12 Education Initiative. The program includes access to tablets and other devices at special pricing, and provides schools with additional services and support. The Sony Xperia  Tablet S is the flagship device in the program.

Educators can utilize the Sony Education Ambassador (SEA) community, a free online destination that provides solutions for educators looking to implement technology in the classroom, and fosters dialogue about how technology can enhance student learning.

Sony has tapped a group of teachers, IT managers and specialists across the U.S. to be Sony Education Ambassadors. They have been equipped with Sony devices and have been trained on how to best use these devices in the classroom. Resources range from instructional videos to lesson plans that align with a wide array of instructions, including Common Core State Standards.

Additionally, the Sony Education Program offers educators security and content management options. Educators can also centrally manage mobile devices and deploy apps and content that they choose to fit the class curriculum. Additionally, educators using Xperia tablets receive 50 GB of – cloud storage with Box.com.
