ConveGenius, in a partnership with Lenovo has launched a tablet in India. The Lenovo CG Slate which is launched in India today with a price tag of ₹7499 is meant for kids.
The CG Slate focuses on the concept of education through entertainment. Well, not just kids, even we grown ups don’t like going through stuff which only consists of text. That can be quite boring. Throw in some pictures, videos and interactivity and that same boring content becomes interesting and full of fun. Kids easily get attracted to such kind of things and hence can learn easily.
The CG Slate is based on the same concept. It helps kids learn with the help of videos, stories, interactive books and worksheets. The tablet is mapped to NCERT’s curriculum, and, you can also track your child’s progress. The tablet is suitable for kids who are studying in grade 3 to 5. You can create multiple profiles if you have multiple kids, and, the tablet can also be used as a standard Android tablet.
“We envision CG Slate to be every child’s best friend for Learning, Entertainment, and Shopping. In this endeavour, we have partnered with best-in-breed brands such as Lenovo and Flipkart to ensure a seamless user and purchase experience, respectively. CG Slate is an affordable and comprehensive mobile learning solution, which uses the immense potential of gamification to personalise learning for kids, and supplements regular curricula taught in school with NCERT-mapped content. We are positive that CG Slate’s interactive lessons, games, videos and movies will enrich the overall learning experience of the young generation, and would be a real aid for parents.” said Jairaj Bhattacharya, MD, ConveGenius Group.
“Tablet technology has been a game-changer for education since it allows young learners to leverage a touch-screen interface to access a wide variety of digital resources. Lenovo has always aimed at providing the best devices and technology for education and entertainment and our association with ConveGenius reinforces this commitment in the form of CG Slate. The Lenovo powered education tablet is an ideal device that provides an enriched and comprehensive learning experience for young children.” said Bhaskar Choudhuri, Director – Marketing, Lenovo India.
