Kenya’s DigiSchool Digital Devices Unveiled At Connected Summit 2016
I had meant to do this blog post yesterday but a packed day at Connected Summit 2016 made it impossible. However, it was impressive to see that Kenya’s Ministry of Information, Communications and Technology, and by extension the Kenya ICT Authority chose to use the event to unveil the much anticipated digital devices for the DigiSchool initiative.
The two digital devices are the learners digital device or LDD which is a tablet for school children and the teachers digital device or TDD which is a computer that will be used by teachers to educate school children. The two devices have been designed to work together and come pre-loaded with e-learning content. In addition, the distinctive looking devices have been Government of Kenya branded. The plan is for 10,000 LDD’s to be distributed to primary schools in Kenya as part of a pilot over the next 4 weeks which is impressive.
