How Africa’s first education tablet computer was created

The idea is simple; transfer a country’s entire education curriculum onto a digital format, along with sounds, animations and interactivity, and you no longer need a satchel crammed with school books.

This month his Qelasy tablet is going into schools for the first time. “This is a day I’ve been waiting for,” Mr N’Doufou, the Ivory coast inventor says.

The Ivorian government will be introducing the tablets to 5,000 students in public schools, while some private schools in both Ivory Coast and Morocco will be running pilot projects.

They have also had interest from Ukraine, Macedonia, Senegal, Nigeria and France. “My dream is to reach all the schools in the world for a better education,” he says.
