In 2013, Google unveiled plans for a new section of its Android app store focused mainly on education. This section was called Google Play for Education Store. The new store was touted as a platform that allows schools to find educational apps and other education content for different grade levels.
The Google Play for Education platform offers educational content for different grade levels ranging from Kindergarten to grade 12 in various subjects including English Language, Mathematics, World Languages, Science, Science, Open Education Resources, and so on.
Apps submitted to the Google education store are specially reviewed by educators and grouped into categories based on specific standards. The third-party network of educators assigns appropriate subject and grade-level classification to apps submitted by developers to the Google for Education Platform once they have ascertained that the app meets the platform’s criteria for classroom use.
The Google Play for education platform was designed to make it a lot easier for educators to buy educational content in bulk and distribute them directly to their Android devices of their students. The content can be purchased from the Google for Education Platform using a PO without a credit card. The applications are distributed directly to the tabs and Chromebooks of the students directly through the cloud.
Payment on the Google Play For Education Platform is based on one-time purchases. There is no subscription model offered.
Devices such as Nexus 7, Asus Transformer, Galaxy Tab for Education, and the HP Slate 8 Pro are a few of the devices on the Google for Education plan. There are more than a million Chromebooks on this plan as well. These devices can access the Google Play For Education store and can see and download the apps from this store.
The Google Play for Education platform is built specifically for educators. But the content on the store is designed for both the students and educators. School administrators and teachers are the ones to buy educational content and manage how they are distributed within their school.
Developers can submit their educational apps for the Google Play for Education store. However, in addition to being displayed on the Google for Education Store, these apps will be displayed on the general Google Play store as well. The Google Play for Education platform is an extension of the general Google Play store. However, this section is targeted at schools. This platform also makes the discovery of educational apps a lot easier for educators.
As a developer, submitting your app to the Google for education store helps to get your app across to the appropriate audience so you don’t have to directly distribute your apps to schools by yourself. Due to the rigorous review and categorization process of these apps, only the highest quality apps are curated on this platform. The store is also designed in such a way that teachers and educators can quickly find the apps they need for their students.

I also appreciate when such giant companies create something for education. Well, we also have some apps like http://duolingo.com/ and others. But they do not really suit me. I can’t control my attention and I need more explanation of rules and words. I read more articles on the Preply platform. I like how they explain everything.
