iSchool gives students a new chance; the opportunity to become problem solvers and to change their life circumstances, the first step on the road out of poverty.
The populations of developing nations are expanding with their economies growing at unprecedented levels. Many communities don’t experience any benefit and remain in subsistence lifestyles, largely because of a lack of good education.
iSchool seeks to change this by introducing modern interactive enquiry based learning and all the resources needed by teachers and students.
Help the whole family become life-long learners, with every lesson in the Zambian school syllabus, backed up with homework for every grade.
There are interactive lessons for every day of the school year, so you can review today's lessons from school, including homework, and revise areas where you need help. Read through our stories for learning and fun, and use our reading scheme.
Parents can benefit too: adult literacy and numeracy; life-skills learning; health and farming. Create up to 4 personal profiles to remember your progress and your local language of choice (English; Lusaka Nyanja; Bemba; Kaonde; Lozi; Lunda; Luvale; Tonga)
Also on the tablet; email and educational web browsing, with Wikipedia pre-loaded, Word processor and spreadsheet software, reference material and many more fun family Apps.
The Pupil Edition of the iSchool tablet is sold as part of the iSchool Total Learning Environment for schools, which uses the tablets in a blended learning environment as part of rotational group work, meaning one iSchool tablet can be shared between many pupils through careful lesson planning (all provided), making it cost-effective and part of a wider, engaging lesson.
No internet access is needed for the iSchool tablet to be used in a school, no special classrooms are needed, and solar power can even be provided if there is no mains electricity at the school.
As well as the iSchool primary school multimedia lessons, the touch-screen tablet includes a pre-loaded version of Wikipedia and other child-friendly apps.
