New Delhi, July 6 (ANI): India's leading Educational Technology Company ConveGenius committed to offering mobile solutions to enhance the quality of education in India announced launch of CG Slate on Lenovo for Grades K-5. The CG Slate is an NCERT curriculum-mapped, self-learning tablet, especially designed for Indian kids in order to make learning fun, yet informative. ConveGenius has partnered with Lenovo to provide world-class hardware, and e-commerce giant, Flipkart, is the online marketplace through which CG Slate will be rolled out in India at Rs. 8,499. This edutainment (Education and Entertainment) solution was earlier accessible exclusively to ConveGenius' B2B clients, which include State Governments, large NGOs and learning centers in India, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The product centers around a 'gamified' approach to learning, which means that the child feels like he/she is a part of a game, while he/she learns important concepts through videos, interactive books, stories and worksheets, and then gets rewarded based on his/her performance. The product creates an environment that motivates the child to enjoy the process of learning, while helping them stay focused, thus improving retention. CG Slate has a unique Learn-Play-Shop approach to learning, which incentivises kids to self-learn without adult supervision, as parental controls take over when the kids use the tablet. As children learn more, they get points, which they can redeem to watch cartoons, to play games and then to add their favorite toys to their wish-list, which their parents can buy for them later with attractive cash-backs linked to his/her performance. Also, the parents, through a root password, can enjoy all the features of a standard Lenovo tablet, which makes CG Slate a premium affordable tablet for the entire family. "We envision CG Slate to be every child's best friend for Learning, Entertainment, and Shopping. In this endeavor, we have partnered with best-in-breed brands such as Lenovo and Flipkart to ensure a seamless user and purchase experience, respectively," said MD ConveGenius Group, Jairaj Bhattacharya. "CG Slate is an affordable and comprehensive mobile learning solution, which uses the immense potential of gamification to personalize learning for kids, and supplements regular curricula taught in school with NCERT-mapped content. We are positive that CG Slate's interactive lessons, games, videos and movies will enrich the overall learning experience of the young generation, and would be a real aid for parents," added Jairaj Bhattacharya. "Tablet technology has been a game-changer for education since it allows young learners to leverage a touch-screen interface to access a wide variety of digital resources. Lenovo has always aimed at providing the best devices and technology for education and entertainment and our association with ConveGenius reinforces this commitment in the form of CG Slate," said Director - Marketing Lenovo India, Bhaskar Choudhuri. The Lenovo powered education tablet is an ideal device that provides an enriched and comprehensive learning experience for young children. (ANI)
