iSchool is transforming how learning happens in primary schools in Africa through interactive, enquiry-based teaching and eLearning for children in a locally contextualized form and local language using modern tablet technology. iSchool is doing for education in Africa what mobile phones did for communication. Africa can skip over the western school computer-lab model and take iSchool tablet devices straight to the very diverse places where children are learning.The iSchool system improves numeracy, literacy and critical thinking and in some cases doubles teacher and student attendance.
A Unique Lending Approach:
Through lending, iSchool would be able to extend their reach and service schools that are not able to afford the iSchool technology upfront. This would include schools in rural areas that are most in need of educational support and resources. iSchool would use Kiva capital to allow schools to pay back the cost of the iSchool program over time, in monthly installments. iSchool borrowers could also use Kiva capital to purchase solar chargers for their iSchool tablet devices.
iSchool is the first content company in the world to change the way teaching and learning is done by modernizing school pedagogy through placing an entire primary school curriculum in animated, voiced and written lessons on tablets in multiple languages.
