The tablet will be available exclusively through Flipkat and is made by Lenovo. The company is giving away first 1000 tablets at a special price of Rs 7,499.
According to the company, the CG Slate tablet is an NCERT curriculum-mapped, self-learning tablet, especially designed for Indian kids in order to make learning fun, yet informative. The Conve Genius’s 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 tablet 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. As per the company, the product creates an environment that motivates the child to enjoy the process of learning, while helping them stay focused, thus improving retention.
