ConveGenius and Lenovo together launched CG Slate for Grades K-5 with NCERT curriculum for Indian kids. It will give kids learning with fun experience. It is a variant of Lenovo Tab 2 A7-20 with some educational content pre loaded in the tablet.
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 centres around a ‘gamified’ approach to learning.
Jairaj Bhattacharya, MD, ConveGenius Group, said,
We envision CG Slate to be every child’s best friend for Learning, Entertainment, and Shopping. In this endeavour, we have partnered with best-in-breed brands such as Lenovo and Flipkart to ensure a seamless user and purchase experience, respectively. CG Slate is an affordable and comprehensive mobile learning solution, which uses the immense potential of gamification to personalise 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.
Bhaskar Choudhuri, Director – Marketing, Lenovo India said,
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. The Lenovo powered education tablet is an ideal device that provides an enriched and comprehensive learning experience for young children.
