In collaboration with GSMA and CreditPer, a leading digital lending platform that provides easy access to digital credit to underserved and unserved market segments, Knowledge Platform, a leading ed-tech organisation in Pakistan, has launched Pakistan’s first educational device. Launching such a device and allowing simple access to it via CreditPer is a game changer that will hopefully remove Pakistan’s digital divide in schooling. This gizmo has everything a pupil might possibly need to study. Knowledge Platform recommends that users buy the device of their choosing on credit through CreditPer, which offers quick financing choices.
The device is pre-loaded with Knowledge Platform-powered learning solutions, as well as a library of material that includes films, games, and tests, as well as mobile data. Only 1 million of Pakistan’s 49 million school-aged children (grades 1–12) have access to dedicated instructional smart gadgets. This indicates that when it comes to education and learning chances, 98 percent of children are negatively impacted and disadvantaged.
With Pakistan’s first-ever educational device, Knowledge Platform, a pioneer in ed-tech, has stepped up to bridge the digital divide in education. Learn Smart Pakistan’s cutting-edge learning solutions, which include curriculum-aligned digital content for K-12 pupils, are included with the tablet. Parhai Buddy (Pakistan’s first AI-powered learning coach), Exam Prep Master (Learn Smart Pakistan), 1-on-1 competitions, and teacher-led trainings are also installed.
CreditPer is giving convenient instalment options to accommodate distinct individual demands in order to encourage mobile adoption. We’ve also worked with Jazz Telecom to create an Edu-data sim that includes a subsidised internet package for PKR. 150 per month, in order to encourage internet adoption in the region. The initiative has been acknowledged by the GSMA as a top mobile innovation for emerging markets and is deemed an outstanding contribution to the UN SDGs, and has been shortlisted for the Global Mobile Awards.
“We are pleased to be the change creators in the ed-tech business,” stated Mahboob Mahmood, CEO of Knowledge Platform. Online education is hampered by a lack of affordable gadgets and internet connection. We’ve taken a step closer to bridging the digital divide with the debut of our instructional tablet. The device is provided on instalments to those with low-income streams through this partnership with CreditPer, giving them access to tailored learning, digital content, games, assessments, and statistics. The way education is done has swiftly developed over the years, and it’s encouraging to see tech businesses working together to transform education.”
