hi . i have a kids center and want to buy something that would entertain kids. that would look like a large desktop computer with educational apps installed. any ideas?
Hello and welcome.

The first thing that come to mind is this:
http://www.samsung.com/us/business/commercial-display-solutions/LH40SFWTGC/ZA

This is now called PixelSense (it was called surface before Microsoft started to use that name for their new tablet).

I don't really know the software support for this hardware but you could contact Samsung or Microsoft for a list of software partner.


Hello,

I found this Activity center which is a collaborative learning center for children. This is an Activity Learning Unit that you can add and input your own lessons as well as has software loaded. This will accommodate up to eight children around the table and should do what you need to stimulate their minds and teach them. The way this is set up it can also acccomodate differently abled students in wheel chairs, which is very important.

This is the Unit by Smart Tech: http://smarttech.com/table

Please let me know if this is what you are looking for, if not I can do some more research for you.

thank you. please can i have more options? somthing for kids with speech delay

Hi,

I could not find an activity center specifically for children with speech delays, but you could load the software into the Smart Tech Activity Center, I suggested. They also make application that could be used like this one: http://www.dttrainer.com/ that can be down loaded into the Smart Tech Table. This is another link with Apps that can also be downloaded for use with the Smart Tech: http://onlinespeechpathologyprograms.net/2012/the-30-best-mobile-apps-for-speech-pathologists/ I used to do some substitute teaching in a school called the Progressive Academy and we had Autisic children, Speech Delayed children, and children who were all diferently abled, and we used something similiar to the Smart Tech Table, which worked well.
