How do you see the importance of tablets in education?
A tablet must not be just seen advancement to a laptop or desktop, but there’s a lot more to it. With its quality of being light-weight and ‘on the go’, a tablet can be your book, your sketch book, your blackboard, and even your classroom. There is a lot of scope for a tablet to show its importance in the education sector.
