A grassroots developed proven concept designed for massive scale with greatest impact.
Reaching unreachable schools
Our target is schools with no electricity. That’s 80% of the schools in Sub Saharan schools that are unreachable by other models for educational technology development.
Disruptive. Hi-tech. Tech lite.
Our all-in-one interactive learning device uses a large interactive display, but do not confuse this with a standard interactive whiteboard. Using the world’s most advanced learning technologies its functionality transforms it into an entirely new class of equipment. It integrates with mobile broadband and WIFI if available.
Designed for Massive Scale
For $3.00/child/year we deliver our all inclusive, CyberSmart Digital Learning System packaging: the world’s most advanced learning technologies; quality interactive digital learning content; teacher training and integrated monitoring, evaluation and student assessment. Our 4 year target is 66,000 schools or 16.5 Million children.
Improved Classroom Learning
The CyberSmart Digital Learning System works directly at the point of classroom instruction with high quality interactive digital learning content and research-proven ‘what works’ instructional strategies. The result is the improved use of classroom instructional time. Learner-centered pedagogy engages and motivates students, encouraging collaboration while providing explicit skill instruction.
Impact more students on a daily basis
Our all-in-one interactive classroom learning device impacts a whole class of students and easily moves between classrooms.
More teacher training
We provide 50% more teacher training to build sustainable professional staff capabilities. Compared to other models for educational technology development, we have less equipment to manage, so the bulk of our funding directly to teacher training – the best way to improve student achievement.
Grass-roots development for a proven concept
Through the active use by teachers and students in rural Senegalese schools, The CyberSmart Digital Learning System has been put to the test, refined and improved over years. A successful multi-school proof-of-concept was completed with USAID in 2012.
New financial model for high quality digital learning
We boldly changed the financial equation. Other models of educational technology development are devoted to buying, installing and maintaining equipment. The CyberSmart Digital Learning System uses less equipment and minimizes the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) . The bulk of our funding is directly allocated for teacher training – the best way to improve student achievement.
