We are delighted to share with you that iMlango was announced as the winner of the "Best e-learning platform" award at the Digital Inclusion Awards in Nairobi last week.
The Digital Inclusion Awards recognises the key players in various sectors that have adopted digital technology to offer products or services in a more convenient manner, and which have changed the lives of their clients or end-users.
An integral part of the iMlango programme, the interactive e-learning platform has delivered specialist educational content digitally to over 190,000 marginalised children, in 205 schools, over the past three years to help improve learning outcomes.
Commenting on the award win, Cecilia Wakahiu, Head, National ICT Innovation and Integration Centre, Ministry of Education, said: “Learning in the internet age means pupils must acquire the much needed 21st century skills. iMlango’s e-learning platform has delivered engaging educational content to the classroom to help improve mathematics and literacy levels, and pupils have developed digital skills too.”
“The e-learning platform has really brought a fresh approach to learning in Kenya. The versatile platform has enabled teachers to be more innovative in the way they deliver their lessons. This is one of the best e-learning platforms that we have tested and rolled out at the Ministry.”
Simon Kaniu, General Manager of sQuid Kenya, added: “I am extremely proud that iMlango has won this award and I would like to congratulate and personally thank the iMlango consortium partners and the Ministry of Education, as without their support the platform would not have made such a positive impact to the iMlango pupils’ lives.”
A big congratulations and thank you to everyone involved in the programme – keep up the great work!
