Google Play for Education launched earlier this month as a curated market that distributes apps aimed at helping teachers with classroom instruction. Apps in this separate market are, naturally, both educational and kid-friendly. Another aspect of program is the ability for schools to place bulk orders for Nexus devices, and now an app is available to help school officials activate their tablets once the shipment arrives.



This app is intended solely for school administrators, helping them to set up their tablets and prepare them to access Google's educational app store. Therefore, it requires a Google Play for Education account in order to work. Administrators can use the app to manage connection settings, device preferences, and homescreens. It's available for download in the Play Store below.
