Verizon Wireless was chosen to partner with East Orange Campus High School in East Orange New Jersey to pilot a program using tablets for education. All 480 students will receive a 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab that will operate on a private network, also implemented by Verizon Wireless.
“This is a logical next step for school systems; delivering information in a way that our students are accustomed to consuming it,” said Makeba McCray, Technology Coordinator for East Orange Campus High School. “With the increasing cost of paper and the popularity of digital devices, this was also a natural cost-saving step that we hope everyone will benefit from and enjoy. To complement our plans, we needed a carrier with a reliable network at a great value. We’re excited to work with Verizon Wireless, who gave us exactly what we hoped for.”
