Launchpads Tablets are here!

Posted by blair on

Oconee County Public Library announced today that Launchpad tablets will be available at all branches for patron checkout starting Wednesday, October 11. Launchpads are designed for both children and adults and are pre-loaded with high-quality, ad-free apps that are both fun and educational. Apps are grouped onto the tablets by subject area, theme, grade level, and age, making it easy for parents and kids to choose a tablet with the content most appealing to them. Every Launchpad is 100% secure, providing hours of interactive learning and play without the risk of exposure to unintended content.

The Launchpad content collection spans subject areas from math and science to critical thinking and creativity, and features themed learning packs including animals, princesses, fantasy, nature, and more. A custom designed user interface gives children the opportunity to make every Launchpad experience their own by creating a personal avatar plus an informational console gives parents and caregivers feedback about time spent on the tablet.

The Launchpad is powered by an Android operating system and features a 7” high definition touch screen, external speaker, universal audio jack and a durable, protective bumper. Patrons can simply check out a Launchpad tablet and play. No Internet connectivity or downloading is required for use.
