Mumbai: Samsung funded South Korean company Taghive signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Kaivalya Education Foundation (KEF) to introduce a virtual learning engagement system for Government school students. This first-ever digital technology backed system will bring enhanced efficacy and engagement for 900 schools under the KEF umbrella across the States of Maharashtra, Haryana and Odisha, supported by Edelgive, Tata Communications Ltd (TCL) and other donors. All the schools will install TagHive’s flagship clicker-based solution ‘Class Saathi’ for the students of grades 3 and 5. Over 10,000 students will be able to access ‘Class Saathi’ and 1500 Teachers will be able to conduct baseline, mid-line and end-line assessments in Mathematics and Language based subjects.
Speaking at the MoU signing TagHive’s Founder & CEO – Pankaj Agarwal said, “KEF has been at the forefront of creating disruption in the education sector in India by bringing in radical innovation. This collaboration will upgrade the current learning experience of 10,000 government school students. Additionally, teachers can also use the ‘Class Saathi’ app to virtually engage the students in a seamless manner.”
TagHive recently signed an MoU with the Government of Madhya Pradesh to deploy ‘Class Saathi’ App across 2,000 schools in over 50 districts in these states. Throwing light on the expansion of TagHive, Pankaj added, “We are extremely pleased with the way we are increasing our base in India in a sustainable manner. With this MOU we have now expanded our operations from Madhya Pradesh to Maharashtra, Haryana and Odisha. We are looking at collaborating with more state governments to increase our base to over 10,000 government schools in India by 2021.”
Mr Arun Poddar from Kaivalya Education Foundation added, “Class Saathi is by far the most disruptive of ed-tech solution in India currently. As a developing nation, Indian education is expected to take 100 years before it can catch up with the quality of education in other developed nations. Without radical innovation and transformation, this 100-year gap will lead to six generations of learners who will miss out on achieving their potential. Leveraging KEF’s pan-India reach and decades-long expertise within government schools, ‘Class Saathi’ is going to be a game changer in transforming the K-12 ecosystem of India.”
Founded in 2017, TagHive’s mission is to onboard over 250 million students across India. The start-up recently closed its Pre-Series A Funding round by Joon Hyon from South Korea, valuing TagHive at $10 million.
