Rohit Pande, a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta, has come back to his alma mater to launch his latest innovation, Classpad.
Touted as a revolution in the education sector, the tablet is claimed to make education accessible to each student according to their own merit and intellect.
Classpad facilitates personalized and interactive learning in the classroom and makes education accessible to every student according to his/ her individual intelligence level and talent. Using the Classpad, teachers can effortlessly transfer class work to the students tablet, share their own content instantly and conduct tests/ assessments hassle free. Students can also give undivided attention to class lessons, attempt assessments and get immediate results to further enhance their learning.
Classpad has a touch screen with a 7 hour battery life, 1.3 Ghz processing speed and a built-in memory of 4GB expandable upto 8GB.
Addressing the participants at the launch, Pande said, Our education system does not differentiate students according to the learning capabilities and teach them at the same level, but the software installed in Classpad tests students problem-solving, creativity and application of language skills. It provides them with personalized teaching as per their learning capabilities. Equipped with artificial intelligence, Classpad can help to categorize students as fast learners, average learners and slow learners. Classpad can assist in reducing the monotony of repetitive sessions in the classroom. Teachers can now complete their syllabus within schedule and get considerable time to focus on slow learners."
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. The Classpad is available in 2 models: Trolley model for multiple student usage and One Tablet per Child (OTPC) model.
Will OTPC succeed where OLPC didn't?
