Google is launching its educational app store today and encouraging developers to build new tools aimed at the K-12 audience. The Google Play for Education store will allow educators to easily purchase and install apps in bulk, making it simple to distribute them across an entire classroom or school's stock of tablets. Though all apps marked as educational will appear in the store, apps that go through a review process by an educator will be marked with a special badge and information on their subject and grade level. Google says that the store will include videos and educational content aside from apps as well, though it'll all revolve around tablet use for now.

Update: Google tells us that all apps marked for education will included in the Play for Education store, not just apps that have been reviewed by educators. The article has been adjusted to reflect this.
