Tech giant Google launched first education tablet made for Chrome OS – Acer Chromebook Tab 10 – today. With touch and stylus functionality, this lightweight device allows students to easily create multimedia projects. It also comes with Google Expeditions AR.

Whether overseeing 100 or 100,000 devices, IT admins can manage these new Chromebook tablets alongside other Chrome devices with the Chrome Education license. This lets students access everything they need to learn, while giving admins control from a single, scalable console.

Just like Chromebook laptops, with Chromebook Tab 10 students can quickly and securely log on to any device for a personalised learning experience and just as easily log out from all apps when the class is over. Verified boot checks security at every boot and all user data is encrypted, making each Chromebook tablet secure and shareable.

These new Chromebooks come with a low-cost Chromebook stylus inside that does not require charging or pairing. The stylus uses advanced machine learning to predict student writing for a natural writing experience.

‘Coming soon, teachers can take students on Google Expeditions to the Great Barrier Reef, the Colosseum, and even to the International Space Station – all from the screens of their Chrome devices. And with Expeditions AR, students will be able to stare into the eye of a miniature Category 5 hurricane or get up close with a strand of DNA,’ said Cyrus Mistry, Group Product Manager, Google for Education.

Students can use their stylus to jot down notes in Google Keep without the hassle of keeping track of (and losing) paper. In Squid, students can write directly on PDF with different ‘paper’ types like blank, wide-ruled and grid. With the annotation feature in Google Classroom, teachers can illustrate complex concepts and give visual feedback, as well as assign PDF worksheets that students can annotate by hand.

For educators, creative apps like Adobe Illustrator Draw turn the classroom into a design studio and let students and teachers draw and create vector designs. But what about teaching mathematics or science? Well, apps like Texthelp EquatIO let students hand write any math expression and add it to a Google Doc in one click. Coding apps like Scratch Jr introduce younger students to the foundations of computational thinking, while enabling them to be creators.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 comes with support for these and hundreds of other learning applications in the Play Store.
