Findaway World Debuts Children's Learning Tablet for Schools and Libraries

Findaway World introduced the Playaway Launchpad, a secure, preloaded learning tablet for children that is designed specifically for circulation in library and classroom environments. It delivers ad-free learning apps grouped by subject area (e.g., math, science, or critical thinking), theme (animals, princesses, fantasy, or nature, etc.), grade level, and age. A reset feature wipes the previous user’s data from the device so it is ready for the next checkout.

“Launchpad directly addresses the common pain points of retail tablets, offering a turnkey solution for staff wanting to provide access to a high-quality, interactive learning tool in a safe, fun, and affordable way,” says Jennifer Leombruno, VP of the Playaway Products Group.

For more information, read the press release.
