CG Slate is a complete, low-cost, premium educational tablet for children between the ages 3 and 12 years. The crux of the product is captured in these three words ‘Learn, Play, Shop’, and these are represented by the three available zones on CG Slate, the Learn Zone, the Play Zone, and the Shop Zone.
CG SLATE- Complete Educational Tablet mapped to NCERT curriculum
CG Slate’s Learn Zone has premium content in the form of videos, interactive books, games and worksheets that supports regular curricula taught in school. All this content is mapped to NCERT syllabus and adheres to the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) with 1500+ modules hand-picked by experts and aggregated from the best global content providers. All this is available to kids for free, since no internet is required in the Learn Zone, and the content comes pre-loaded on the 32 GB SD card. Two versions are available, one for grades K-2, and the other one for grades 3-5.
CGSLATE- Gamification of Learning- Making it Fun and Rewarding
CG Slate is not a game-based platform. It is instead a gamified platform. It focuses on the rules-experiences-achievements approach of a game and applies the same to learning to make it interesting for the child. It has animations, simulations of real life concepts, and interactive books that bring back play to education.
CG SLATE- Safety first approach with Restrictive Ecosystem and Advanced Parental Controls
CG Slate provides advanced parental control, with separate pins for parents and kids. This ensures that children are exposed to content appropriate for their age. Further, kids can enter the Android Zone only with the parent entering the parent pin and granting access.
CG SLATE- Learning Outcome-based with Automatic SMS/Email reports
CG Slate helps parents keep a track of their child’s learning outcomes with Data Analytics and Comprehensive Reporting. Learning outcomes can be measured through time spent per topic/subject, assessment results, subjects and chapters studied. Also, there are a number of filters available to find out the minutest details about the child’s performance.
CG SLATE- Adaptive Learning, for a Personalized Learning Experience
We understand that every child is unique, and so are their learning needs. In order to address different learning needs, CG Slate is sequenced in an adaptive and intelligent manner. It has an assortment of interactive books, world-class animation videos, worksheets, competency-based games, etc. to help the child explore and choose the way he/she learns best. It also recommends based on performance and choices.
CG SLATE- Technology for learning, based on latest Scientific Research
Today’s kids are digital natives, born in the 21st century with intuitive fluency in the digital language of computers, video games and the Internet. CG Slate understands this, and is specifically created for kids in this new age of technology, and is backed by scientific research. It is perfectly in line with the latest education technology. It has a very child-friendly and interactive user interface, making sure that every child is able to navigate through it easily.
CG SLATE- Economical Solution costing only Rs. 7500 (for 1st 1000 parents)
The product has been priced in a manner to make it affordable for all. A good smartphone with paid educational apps can cost around INR 15,000 and a tablet with the same apps may cost something around INR 20,000. But, CG Slate comes as a package priced at INR 8,499, with an early bird offer on the first thousand tablets, which are available at the unbelievable price of INR 7,499.
Mr. Jairaj Bhattacharya, MD, ConveGenius Group said at the launch,
We envision CG Slate to be every child’s best friend for Learning, Entertainment, and Shopping. In this endeavor, 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 personalize 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.
