    Google TV On Campus
    (Cross-posted on the Google Student Blog)

    Google TV has been popping up on college campuses across the country.
    We’re coordinating with the
    Google Student Ambassador Program and University
    Programs to share Google TV with students and faculty.

    This initiative began last semester when Google Student Ambassadors hosted
    Google TV study breaks on over thirty campuses. The ambassadors had
    students compete to win Sony Internet TVs for their friends and school.
    They hosted
    pizza breaks, tech challenges, YouTube marathons and of course,

    The top seven most creative study breaks won two Sony Internet TVs to
    give back to their college as a reward for their school spirit and
    enthusiasm for Google TV.

    The momentum from the Google TV study breaks has carried over into the
    classroom. Already, the web on TV has proven itself as a great platform
    for early education and reading skills with web apps likePBS Kids andMeegenius.
    However, professors have expressed interest in expanding these opportunities to all levels of learning.

    That is why we are announcing Google TV for EDU, a seeding program to
    support university research. Google TV for EDU asks campuses around the
    country: how can education change the world of the Web the TV for the
    classroom. Specifically, we’re asking faculty how their research could:

    • Generate new interest in television engineering
    • Make computer science tangible for students
    • Help in the development of smart TV curricula and new educational tools
    • Contribute to in-classroom and distance learning over television
    • Reach a wide audience

    We officially launched the program yesterday to select university faculty
    with experience and leadership in television. These select faculty will
    receive a Logitech Revue to carry out their research in the classroom.
    Over the next few months we’ll be posting outcomes of their research as
    well as information on new educational web-apps.
