Marvell has just showcased its Classroom 3.0 initiative at this year’s CES, featuring the SMILE Plug that can create a private Wi-Fi cloud for up to 60 people. The device was created in partnership with the Stanford University’s Mobile Inquiry Based Learning Environment and is ideal for classroom environments. Using the SMILE Plug, teachers can easily monitor what each student is doing on a tablet or computer and even control the devices. Having a ‘micro cloud’ environment allows learning for students to be much more interactive as they can collaborate with peers and teachers.

Once connected, the SMILE Plug lights up a green smiling face on its front surface. Marvell also supports the One Laptop per Child initiative and the SMILE Plug can be used with its OLPC X0 3.0 low-cost tablet to “improve the education experience for students and teachers around the world,” specifically in developing countries.
