Our goal: educate the fastest growing youth population.
CyberSmart Africa provides the world’s first mobile learning technology platform designed at the grassroots for classrooms in developing world — especially those without electricity.
The CyberSmart Learning Platform packages the most advanced learning technologies, quality content, and training into a single mobile unit.
Previously unavailable instructional materials — maps, photos, videos and up-to-date quality content—now quickly and easily enrich and directly support classroom learning. Teachers gain precious classroom instructional time because they no longer have to copy lessons onto the blackboard for their classroom of students who have no textbooks.
We’re reaching the unreachable schools.
Sub-Saharan Africa has the fastest growing youth population in the world. It will be impossible to effectively educate these young people without the use of technology.
We know that technology alone does not improve learning — but without the help of technology in the classroom, developing countries will struggle to educate their growing student population and catch up to the rest of the word.
Previous educational technology programs in Sub-Saharan Africa have dramatically failed. Most schools — 80% — are unreachable with the current models (computer labs or laptops) because they lack electricity and basic infrastructure.
We have a proven game-changer.
We completed a successful USAID proof-of-concept in elementary and middle schools across rural Senegal. Since then we’ve been refining our learning technology platform.
Our strategy is based entirely on our 8-year grassroots collaboration with these teachers in rural schools.
We have successfully demonstrated that technology-integrated classroom learning – which is commonplace in developed nations – can be equally valuable and practical in developing nations. We proved that the appropriate use of technology saves learning time and provides learning resources that would otherwise be inaccessible.
