Rohit Pande, a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta comes back to his alma mater to launch his latest innovation Classpad.
Using the Classpad, teachers can transfer class work to the students’ tablet, share their own content instantly and conduct tests/ assessments. Students can also give undivided attention to class lessons, attempt assessments and get results to further enhance their learning.
Classpad has a touchscreen with a 7 hour battery life, 1.3 Ghz processing speed and a built-in memory of 4GB expandable upto 8GB. The tablet is available in three sizes – seven, eight and 10 inches – and costs between Rs 7,500 and 14,000.
Several schools across the country have tiedup for the device, including Fr Agnel School, Delhi; SSB Bangalore; and Centre Point School, Nagpur. However, the tablet is not available for retail sale yet, it is available only for schools.
Addressing the participants at the launch, Rohit Pande, CEO, Classteacher Learning Systems said, “Our education system does not differentiate students according to the learning capabilities and teach them at the same level, but the software installed in Classpad tests students’ problem solving, creativity and application of language skills. It provides them with personalized teaching as per their learning capabilities. Equipped with artificial intelligence, Classpad can help to categorize students as fast learners, average learners and slow learners. Classpad can assist in reducing the monotony of repetitive sessions in the classroom. Teachers can now complete their syllabus within schedule and get considerable time to focus on slow learners.”
Classpad is available for students in standard 3 to 12th.
