Most of the educational empowerment program will be facilitated on the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ using Edmodo's free Android App, an online social learning network for education. SOTI, a world leader in enterprise Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions, will provide complimentary security for the tablets used in the program.“Similar programs have been very satisfying for us over the past couple of years in other locations, including Newark and Boston, and we’re excited to continue with John D. O’Bryant and Boston Green Academy,” said Todd Pendleton, Chief Marketing Officer for Samsung. “Aside from being a premier mobile lifestyle and communication device, the Tab is also well-suited for educational purposes and gives us the opportunity to use our technology to help students succeed both in their education and livelihoods.” For more information on Verizon Wireless, please visit www.verizonwireless.com or call 1-800-2-JOIN IN.
