Speaking at the launch, Sameer Buti, Executive Director and Co-founder of Classteacher Learning Systems said, “The education system in our country does not differentiate students according to their individual learning capabilities and teach all of them at the same level. Classpad has in-built software that tests students’ problem solving, creativity and application of language skills, thereby facilitating interactive learning and reducing the monotony of repetitive sessions in the classroom. Classpad can help to categorize students as fast learners, average learners and slow learners thereby providing each student with personalized teaching in line with their learning capabilities. Using the tablet, teachers can also complete their syllabus within schedule and get considerable time to focus on slow learners.
He further added, “currently, we have deployed Classpads in more than 25 schools pan India and in North East we have tied up with 3 schools viz, Shishu Nishtha Niketan – Imphal; Sanskriti - the Gurukul and The Modern English School - Guwahati. We hope this new wave of technology in schools will set a benchmark for quality education in the North East region and open doors to more such learning possibilities for students.”
Available for students in standard 3 to 12, Classpad can serve as an interactive e-reading device, with the capability of storing dozens of books. Equipped with distinctive software that is designed to integrate smoothly with existing school platforms, Classpad can easily be connected to the interactive whiteboards.
