ElimuPopote is an EdTech solution targeted towards primary school children in Kenya to allow them to learn in a more wholesome and interactive way while providing a means through which performance can be tracked in real-time. The data collected from the students’ usage of the solution will be used to better the content as well as shared with specific partners such as the government to provide targeted services to these children.
There is an average of 10 million students enrolled in primary school in Kenya with roughly 1.5 million being candidates. Of the current Kenyan population, 60% already use a smartphone and 82% access the internet daily via the use of mobile devices. This offers a prime medium through which content can be delivered to students without barriers of access and lack of bulky books as in the traditional settings.
Some of the advantages are low cost, consistent progress reports, large scale monitoring, increased confidence as well as winning prizes.
