Tech behemoth Google has rolled out a new educational program for parents and children for the summer vacations. As fraction of its “#SummerWithGoogle,” the firm will provide a range of activities to keep young kids (in the age of 13–18) engaged all through their summer vacations, claimed Sunita Mohanty, Google India Director for Trust and Safety, to the media in an interview.
Google will issue one assignment each week for 4 Weeks, which will comprise employment of different Google products such as Google Translate, Google Arts and Culture, and Google Earth, she claimed further. The final assignment will involve development of an application to share their experience in the summer.
“Post 4 Weeks, 100 kids will be selected in addition to an accompanying parent to give a visit to our campus so as to attend an interactive workshop in either Hyderabad or Delhi,” Mohanty claimed in her statement. She clarified that every assignment will also teach these kids how to be Internet Alert, Internet Smart, Internet Kind, Internet Strong, and Internet Brave. Mohanty claimed that parents are also motivated to be a portion of the program that is being introduced for the initial time in the country.
On a related note, Google is making its Android-supported app for AR (Augmented Reality) experiences, ARCore, available in China through Mi Mix 2S handsets manufactured by Xiaomi.
“Originally, the tech will be obtainable for Xiaomi Mix 2S smartphones through an app in the Xiaomi App Store. However, Google has plans to include more associates in China eventually, comprising Samsung and Huawei that have enrolled to distribute ARCore applications on Chinese turf,” the media reported early this week.
Although most of the core services by Google, comprising Google Play Store, stay either restricted or blocked in China, the applications supported by ARCore will be capable of functioning in the country due to the fact that this tech can work on handsets without the support of cloud.
