Aakash tablet maker brings CK-12's maths, science teaching aids to India

New Delhi, November 19,  2013: DataWind, known as the maker of  low cost PC Tablets like Aakaash, has  entered into a  strategic partnership with US based not-for-profit education content provider CK12 to provide Indian customers great high quality free math and science material that can be used by teachers, students, schools and parents.

CK-12 will come pre-installed on most DataWind devices ( Aakash, UbiSlate)  so users will have access to high quality math and science learning material at their fingertips for free.

 Says DataWind CEO, Suneet Singh Tuli: “Our aim is to enable and equip every student in India with implements of learning that spawn interest in higher academic achievement – in this case the tablet PC, but the hardware itself is not enough to serve the purpose of empowerment. Rich, free, interactive, referential and engaging educational content is an imperative for their success. As tablets are revolutionizing learning globally, this intersection of an affordable tablet with CK-12 content allows Datawind customers an opportunity to learn anywhere, anytime."

Adds  Neeru Khosla, Executive Director of CK-12 Foundation: “Access to high quality education for primary and secondary schools shouldn’t be limited. At CK-12 we provide the content that can be accessed anytime, anywhere to improve learning” says  Because Datawind devices are affordable, partnering with Datawind allows CK-12 to achieve this mission and afford the opportunity for everyone to learn at his or her own pace. Being digital this content can always stay up-to-date unlike traditional printed material. With hundreds of thousands of teachers using CK-12 in US, India and around the world, CK-12has taken into account specific teacher and student needs and created an end-to-end platform that can be used in schools and independently by parents. CK-12 has been pioneering the creation, curation and delivery of open educational content in US for more than 6 years."

DataWind is a leading developer of wireless web access products and services, and among the largest suppliers of tablet computers in India. The company is credited with the developing the world’s lowest cost tablet computer, Aakaash. www.DataWind.com

 The CK-12 Foundation is a California-based non-profit organization striving to reduce the cost of, and increase access to, K-12 education worldwide. A leading provider of open educational content, CK-12 provides free and fully customizable K-12 educational materials aligned to state curriculum standards and tailored to meet student and teacher needs. www.ck12.org
