An African solution to an African problem, the Community Tablet is the first digital school, which runs on four to six large LCD screens, powered by solar panels transported by trailer (which can be attached to anything – from a motor vehicle to a donkey). Working with anthropologists at Mozambique’s leading university, Universidade Eduardo Mondlane, The Community Tablet delivers customised animations that are relevant and familiar to local communities. Gamification helps to increase engagement, while also collecting vital data to demonstrate how well a message has been understood. Since hitting the road in 2015, it has helped to educate more than one million Mozambicans across 90 communities.
Financial Education Campaign
The Community Tablet empowered students with financial awareness through its tailored financial education video lessons. After all video lessons and conference calls with financial experts were delivered, students were able to test their level of understanding through a Quiz installed in the Community Tablet.
Contraception and HIV Campaign
The Community Tablet enabled teenagers to learn about the importance of contraceptive methods and HIV prevention through its tailored contraceptive education video lessons. After all video lessons and conference calls with contraceptive counsellors were delivered, students were able to test their level of understanding through a Quiz installed in the Community Tablet.
The Community Tablet is the creation of serial Mozambican entrepreneur, Dayn Amade. Driven by an ambition to close the digital divide in Africa, Dayn applied what he’d learnt to The Community Tablet with a mission to empower people in rural communities through education. The Community Tablet – a Mozambican company, with design rights registered in the UK Intellectual Property Office – first hit the road in 2015.
Working with NGOs, governments and other corporate partners, The Community Tablet provides a vital bridge to increase the effectiveness of aid programmes and empower individuals to make more informed choices through increased access and engagement in education. Through this work, Dayn has gained national and international recognition – in 2018, he was named by the African Union as one of the top 50 educational innovators and received 3 Southern Africa Start-up Awards – Best Social Impact Start-up, Best EduTech Start-up and Start-up of the Year.
A message from our founder
The Community Tablet uses gamification technology to gather feedback, helping our key partners to understand who has and hasn’t received the information, what people did and didn’t understand, and how their behaviour might be impacted by this new information. This provides accountability and measurement that can be reported back into the organisation, demonstrating effectiveness.
