South Korean tech giant, Samsung has partnered with the Senegalese Ministry of Education to launch “Smart School”, a mobile education solution aimed at providing advanced and interactive classroom experience for students.

According to the official announcement made available to TechCabal, the Samsung Smart School, already installed at the Plan Jaxaay Secondary School, is an integrated platform that includes a monitoring and controlling feature – which allows teachers to keep track of educational content on their learners’ screens in addition to a real-time question-and-answer feature.

Samba Guisse is the IT Advisor at the Human Resources Department  at the Ministry of National Education in Senegal. He thinks this initiative is helping Senegal participate in the future of education. “The future of education is about accessing information and collaborating locally and globally. Teaching and learning has become social; this has become possible with the emergence of initiatives such as the Samsung Smart School” he says.

Samsung’s Corporate Citizenship arm led the initiative also in partnership with Millennium Connect Africa and the platform is already installed in Mali, South Africa, Kenya, Rwanda, DR Congo and Sudan.
