Bringing technology to schools, especially public schools, is not easy. As much as teachers and school officials want to bring much-needed computers to their classrooms, the cost needed to have an adequate supply of hardware is steep.

Sony has announced it chips in to the concern through its K-12 Education Initiative, wherein the company provides schools a discount on the Android-powered Xperia Tablet S tablet. The schools are also given access to Sony Education Ambassador, an online resource for incorporating these tabs into the classroom, as well as 50GB of free cloud storage from Box.com and a year’s worth of Kaspersky Tablet Security service.

“This program is focused on providing teachers with the right education and resources so they can get the most out of technology in the classroom. All the resources are created for teachers, by teachers,” said Jamie Marsh, senior product manager for Sony Tablet, on the company’s official statement. “The online database draws upon the expertise and knowledge of a community to provide ideas and solutions suited to individual teachers’ needs.”

Sony is now accepting orders from schools wanting to become part of this project. For more information, to submit inquiries or to access education resources, visit www.educationambassador.com.
