Samsung tests tablets in Nairobi classroom

Wednesday 5 December 2012 | 11:13 CET | News
Samsung East Africa has embarked on a pilot program to transform Kenya's classrooms into multimedia teaching environments. The on-going pilot is running at the Nairobi Engineering Academy facility, dubbed the Samsung Smart School. Compared with a traditional classroom environment, the Samsung Smart School allows for greater interactivity and student engagement, which leads to improved performance. Students can also learn more efficiently by accessing additional online resources as they take their classes. The transformation involves replacing exercise books with Samsung tablets for the pupils' notes taking. Teachers and students can communicate using the Galaxy Note 10.1, an e-board or TV and the central PC.
