In a move to deliver a more comprehensive solution to schools and consumers, Datawind, maker of the world’s most inexpensive tablet, the Aakash 2 (commercially sold as the UbiSlate7Ci), and Mango Learning (“Mango”), U.S. developer of K-12 game based mobile learning apps, have agreed to embed Mango’s educational games on Datawind’s seven-inch tablets to be deployed globally.
“It is in the best interests of our company as well as our customers to make world-class educational content available to every student on our devices, right out of the box,” explained Suneet S. Tuli, Canada-based CEO of Datawind and one of FORBES’ Impact 15 Classroom Revolutionaries. “Mango Learning’s apps are Indian and U.S. Core Curriculum-aligned, game-based and visually impressive. While our devices support many additional apps, we’re confident that a large portion of end-users will naturally gravitate towards this type of educational game content. That means they will start learning from the moment our devices are in their hands.”
“Our team has developed a set of immersive math games that have the potential to enhance learning at every level,” said Kevin Howell, U.S. CEO of Mango Learning. “This content partnership enables us to provide a comprehensive solution to schools, teachers and parents who are looking to bring their students into the mobile learning realm, and get them inspired about learning. Datawind’s tablets, combined with our content, will be the game-changer.”
