The SchoolapTab is courtesy of Schoolap’s school digitization initiative. The tablet is now fully made in Kinshasa and offers access to the Congolese education curriculum even when off-grid. The tablet was presented to the Special Advisor to the President in charge of Digital, Dominique Migisha, to Mrs. Tina Salama Deputy Spokesperson of the President and the DG of Airtel.
A diverse set of over 30,000 educational materials are available in text and video even when offline. Airtel allows its SIM users to update content via the internet at no charge.
Schoolap is an active player in the digitization of education in the DRC. Building on the momentum of their $500,000 fundraiser last year directed at expanding its services, it’s just a matter of time before Schoolap becomes a household name and a mirror into the future of digitized education in the DRC.
Running on a mantra of “digital for better education” Schoolap aims to reduce inequality in the education sector in the DRC by enabling teachers in rural settings with the same quality of knowledge and as teachers in urban centers.
