The Amazon Fire tablet will be on sale for $35 on Black Friday.
I’ve been experimenting with one for the past few days, and if you want an inexpensive tablet for your classroom, this is a good option. It can be set up to run the Google PlayStore and the standard Google/Android apps (Maps, Gmail, etc.)
It’s available at Amazon and at Best Buy.
I’m also mentioning it to my students, in case they or someone at home needs an inexpensive tablet.
