New Delhi, Aug 23 (ANI): ConveGenius, India's leading Educational Technology Company, committed to enhance the quality of education in India has partnered with Save the Children India (STCI) and the Thane Government to digitize the Municipal Schools.

CG Slate, the flagship product by Convegenius in partnership with Lenovo India, is enabling classrooms via 'Gamified Learning' and holistic analytics.

Their technology has shown amazing results in its ability to transcend barriers of poor infrastructure and show improvements in learning outcomes and enrolments in schools.

The platform provides automated attendance, learning reports and has the ability to guide the kid while they learn from the curated content on the platform.

This program will be launched today by the Commissioner from Thane Municipal Corporation, Sanjay Jaiswal at the Manpada Municipal School in Thane West. The Education department of Thane Municipal Corporation aims to grow this program to all schools across thane within the next two years.

The program has already shown a strong interest from the industry looking to invest their CSR budget in Education.

"The dream to facilitate the kids of the marginalized sectors with the gift of technology based learning has finally come true. Save The Children India which works towards facilitating access to quality education for the underprivileged children always envisioned technology as a strong and potent tool to improve the learning processes and outcomes of student learning," said Program Director of Education at STCI, Sushila Shastri.

"Save The Children India's collaboration with Convegenius, a maverick in the field of integrated technology based learning has made it possible to successfully reach out to the underprivileged with technology based learning in the form of educational tablets," added Sushila Shastri.

Adding to this, Shashank Pandey Cofounder and COO of ConveGenius said," We are funding 10 schools in Thane as a launch pad to enable more philanthropists and donors to adopt schools and grow the program. Our aim is to enable underprivileged children with the access to the best content and learning experience via CG Slate. We will be reaching close to 90,000 children by the end of this year, via CG Slates in Schools and After School Programs." (ANI)
