onveGenius has announced the much-awaited retail launch of CG Slate on Lenovo for Grades K-5. CG Slate is an NCERT curriculum-mapped, self-learning tablet, especially designed for Indian kids in order to make learning fun, yet informative. ConveGenius has partnered with Lenovo to provide world-class hardware, and e-commerce giant, Flipkart, is the online marketplace through which CG Slate will be rolled out in India at INR 8,499 but early Bird Offer for the first 1000 tablets is INR 7499/-
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, which means that the child feels like he/she is a part of a game, while he/she learns important concepts through videos, interactive books, stories and worksheets, and then gets rewarded based on his/her performance. The product creates an environment that motivates the child to enjoy the process of learning, while helping them stay focused, thus improving retention.
CG Slate has a unique Learn-Play-Shop approach to learning, which incentivises kids to self-learn without adult supervision, as parental controls take over when the kids use the tablet. As children learn more, they get points, which they can redeem to watch cartoons, to play games and then to add their favourite toys to their wishlist, which their parents can buy for them later with attractive cashback linked to his/her performance. Also, the parents, through a root password, can enjoy all the features of a standard Lenovo tablet, which makes CG Slate a premium affordable tablet for the entire family!
There is also an intelligent mascot – Titu, that guides the child throughout the learning process by adaptively recommending educational content based on the child’s learning needs. It is built to be a genius-companion, and an able accomplice to aid the kid’s educational journey.
