Cape Town – A new tablet for the classroom has been unveiled by News Corp as the battle to capture the education technology market heats up.

Sky News reports that the Android product, from Rupert Murdoch's education group Amplify, was shown at the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas.

It is a 25cm screen which is designed to allow teachers to monitor pupil progress, customise lessons to students' needs and understanding.

Primary and secondary school children will be able to use content from apps such as Encyclopaedia Britannica and easily organise their homework.

The $299 tablet will be available for US markets from September.
