    Just like every other previous global crisis of this magnitude, #COVID-19 will leave in its wake, a gaping that will force the hands of everyone to rethink so many things and make us realize the need to adopt smart new ways to do things.

    Businesses, especially.

    And EDUCATION.

    The idea of schools without classrooms will finally grow some roots and it will be the beginning of a new age.

    It's only natural.

    And inevitable.

    Constantly, our world changes with time.

    There was a way our ancestors were learning. And those after them had had devised newer ways of learning. Even the ones before our forefathers never used paper and bic! Our forefathers took their school notes, using ink pots. Even in this our own generation, there are still many who went to school with black slates and chalks!

    We are at a new turning point now.

    At The iSchool CLOUD Framework, we have known for some years now that the next shift in how we teach and learn is imminent. And we have been working round the clock to position our solutions for this day.

    Ignore the charlatans and all they have hurriedly put together to take advantage of this pandemic.

    We have the real deal.

    And when this crisis is finally over, we have a date with....history!

    I'm sitting here, watching these kids as they take their 2nd term exams with The iSchool CLOUD Computer-Based Exam System.

    The enthusiasm with which they're approaching the exam, plus the wonderful scores they are getting (automatically) immediately after submitting their papers is giving me a sense of fulfillment.

    The excitement of taking the exams on screens of computer has actually eliminated in these ones, the usual anxiety and trepidation that comes with traditional exams.

    It works for the school, making the whole examination-result process quite cheaper, easy, seamless and super efficient.

    For the learners, it's one of the highlights of their school experiences and it makes them even excel more than they ever do with traditional paper-based exams!

    It's evidential that our work is having positive outcomes and that in itself is enough gratification for us!

    I'm looking forward to a future (which is upon us already) in which every other aspect of schooling will be as interesting as this computer-based examination system we are pioneering.

    Especially the idea of Virtual Lessons.

    I have been seeing news updates about schools being closed because of the corona virus epidemic.

    A very sad development.

    But today, I saw an update on Facebook in which an affected school teacher was asking for recommendations on how to prepare lessons for remote delivery and it occured to me that we're actually closer to the future I anticipate.

    A future in which technology will provide new alternatives to how presently, we are teaching and learning!

    That future is upon us.

    Think about it.

    Remote Schooling.

    Virtual Learning.

    Classrooms Without Walls.

    Quality Education, Commoditized, Unlimited, Unhindered.

    It's the future and I'm happy to be involved in the ground work!

    Because every RoboTeacher must have a name by which it will be addressed and to which it will always answer, I have named our first prototype *Mr. Yainde.*

    In honour of my Crafts Art Teacher in J.S.S. 2 - Mr Ayinde.

    He was blind, but he was amazing!

    When he first walked into our class in 1991, I had marveled at how he was able to navigate his way on his own, how he was reading off his braille binders and most importantly, how he was making up for his blindness with the rest of his senses at hyper mode.

    One day, one of my classmates had tried to play a prank on him.

    Usually, Mr Ayinde would lock the classroom door and sit behind it as he delivers his lessons.

    Kemi Aina had crept to the door, pretended as if she was knocking from outside and when Mr Ayinde asked who was there, she had tweaked her voice to make it sound as if she was someone else, and talking from outside the door.

    Mr Ayinde calmly moved away from the door, opened it and asked her to come in.

    Some of us were giggling already, but muffled.

    I wasn't.

    I had noticed a suppressed knowing grin on Mr Ayinde's face the whole time and I just knew he was aware of the ongoing prank.

    Kemi Aina dragged her feet as if she was walking into the classroom from outside, then changed her voice, saying she needed to collect her textbook from someone.

    Who? Mr Ayinde asked.

    Kemi mentioned her own name and Mr Ayinde grinned.

    He allowed the whole charade to pass but later, he called Kemi and asked her to go and call the girl that just came to collect stuff from her.

    The entire class froze.

    I can still remember every single detail he gave us that day so we could understand how he had busted Kemi's prank!

    Some form of human AI.

    He started with the creaks Kemi's chair and desk had made when she stood up to commence her prank. How the sole of her sandals had made enough sounds for him yo pick up despite her efforts at tip-toeing, How he had felt a slight change in air around him when she had walked past the opened windows, How her knock and voice hadn't passed through the wooden door at all, our muffled giggles, how she couldn't change the pitch off her voice enough to fool him, how she had only matched on the spot without ever walking in or out of the classroom and lastly, how she had tip-toed back to her seat!

    For weeks, we had discussed those details in awe of Mr Ayinde and his exceptional sensories, honed by the need to overcome his predicament everyday since he lost his sight.

    And those details have been with me since then.

    Almost 30 years later, as we play out scenarios and design mechanisms to best animate The RoboTeacher, I keep remembering Mr Ayinde.

    How he used to walk around town on his own, putting his stick out, and following it intricately.

    How he'd cock his head sideways with an impossible level of concentration and pick sounds from afar.

    How he was able to identify all of us only with our voices!

    How he taught us crafts art without his sight!

    Think about this.

    He was blind, yet, he was flogging us all the time!

    You know how? I'll keep that to myself.

    But, if any parent ever wants The RoboTeacher to spank their children, it will be done Mr Ayinde way...

    Today, we mounted a mock-up of the first prototype of The iSchool CLOUD RoboTeacher.

    A simple Robot powered by our own unique AI solution that is aimed at serving as assistant to teachers in the classroom and as educational toy, pet, companion and personal tutor to children at home.

    The RoboTeacher can listen to the kids, take questions from them and respond with detailed answers on just about any topic or subject!

    Being powered by AI, it is safe as parents can actually control the system and how it interacts with the kids.

    Equipped with intelligent OCR eyes, The RoboTeacher can pick a book and read it out for the children.

    Even if there's no book, it can load popular books from memory or from the Internet and read for the children's pleasure or for learning purpose.

    The RoboTeacher can also connect to The iSchool CLOUD Virtual School System, follow a particular time table, study a particular lesson plan and start teaching, based on the lesson plan!

    It can also work with The ISchool CLOUD Desk and help a child study from home.

    It can play back nursery rhymes and add some instrumental beats.

    It can tell stories and recount history.

    It can crack jokes.

    It can gist.

    And I'm tempted to build a backdoor parrot function in it that can do amebor and mimmick things back to parents when they prompt it with a coded phrase.....?

    But definitely, it can report the kids whenever they say anything or take certain actions that violate some moral rules, based on the options and settings to be conditioned into the system by parents!

    It can tell bedtime stories with effects.

    It can teach the kids new languages and help them perfect their diction.

    It can play mental games with them, like questions and answers.

    It can connect to the home TV and cast multimedia learning resources / teaching aids to the screen.

    It has facial and voice recognition capabilities that make its interaction with each child a unique experience.

    The RoboTeacher is #5 in our range of (6) innovative educational technology products that will be launched pretty soon!

    In preparation for the official launch of The iDesk and iClass, we are looking to rev up our participating-schools network by deploying The iSchool® CLOUD™ to interested private schools across Africa at half price!

    About 13 years ago, we started developing The iSchool® CLOUD™ as a school management system, but in those long years, we have been able to turn it into a complete Virtual School System with several functions and features (all of which) you might not find (at once) in any of the other school management systems out there.

    Even, there is a Gatekeeper/Security console in The iSchool® CLOUD™. And the (school bus) drivers.

    Parents' login is a given, but we have taken it several steps further. With The iSchool® CLOUD™, parents can really be involved in their children's school lives.

    We have also introduced the Platinum Access Card which enables parents to take advantage of a special school fees payment scheme (Bits & 25% Advantage) that helps in so many ways.

    If you have a school, take this advantage to get The iSchool® CLOUD™ and your school will be ready for the future that's now upon us.

    The advantages of having The iSchool® CLOUD™ in your school are too many to list but I will tell you a few.

    You will be able to run your school more easily, more efficiently, without even stepping foot into the school at all through the Proprietor's console - a complete supervisory dashboard from where you can monitor and control all day-to-day aspects of your school!

    You will cut down operational expenses by at least, 50% because almost all academic/administrative activities, processes and procedures will be computerized.

    Apart from cost of operations, you will also save a lot of time and human resources.

    The excitement and fun in the new ways of working, teaching, learning, playing and interacting in your school will translate into new enrollments.

    Most importantly, with The iSchool® CLOUD™ in place, your school will be able to key into several of our programs.

    You will be able to accept unlimited number of students from across Africa through The iSchool® CLOUD™ Virtual Schooling System.

    Simply put, this means your school will be available on The iDesk™ for any child (apart from your current students) to attend classes or study remotely and of course, pay up!

    Your school will be able to participate in the Virtual Digital Outreach Schooling Scheme which aims to take quality education to every corner of the continent with support from governments and international organisations.

    The iSchool® CLOUD™ will also make it possible for you to hire more part-time teachers and integrate their private iClasses™ into your classrooms.

    The iSchool® CLOUD™ also serves a platform for reviving inter-school activities on a wider scale. Your school will now be able to participate in continental competitions without having to worry about logistics.

    Your students can now enter into Scrabble competitions, quiz competitions, debate competitions, spelling competitions, writing competitions and so many others that will be done online!

    There is no function or feature you will see in any other school management system that you won't find in The iSchool® CLOUD™ and that's not even our edge.

    Our unique advantage is that anything you want to accomplish, you can have it built into your own version of the solution!

    The iSchool® CLOUD™ is amazing!

  • The iDesk is the only gadget you need to put in your children's room.

    The iDesk is the only gadget you need to put in your children's room.

    You won't have to buy a TV, Computer, DVD, Game or even Reading Table anymore.

    That's because The iDesk is all of these and many more.

    Perhaps, the most interesting thing about The iDesk is how it makes it unnecessary to bring private tutors into your home anymore as they can teach your children remotely.

    Even more exciting is the possibility of hiring as many private tutors as you want (from across the world) to teach your children remotely, virtually!

    Or, the opportunity for your children to enroll into more schools and special classes - virtually!

    How about The MultiBOOK eLibrary that's bundled with The iDesk?

    That's over 1,000,000 on-screen interactive books - in your home - with rich multimedia contents authored by real schoolteachers from across the world, based on all popular curricular!

    And there are so many games, activities, competitions and other collaborative engagements that will connect your children with their classmates across the continent.

    Have you heard about homeschooling?

    It will only make sense now with an iDesk in your home. We have taken into consideration, the fact that you left school a very long time ago and you must have forgotten some things.

    It's cool?.

    The iDesk is there for you. There's a feature on The iDesk that will turn you to a super-teacher and you will no longer be scared to help your children with any assignment or school work!

    We can go on and on about so many more reasons why you should put The iDesk in your home, but you can just ask to see a real life demonstration in your area.

    By the way, you can also use The iDesk for personal development or even, study to earn a degree and several professional certificates from home through the eCampus feature!

    *The iDesk is preloaded with VIRTUAL LESSONS for all Primary 1-6 Subjects based on the Nigerian Education Research & Development Council's Curriculum.

    The part that keeps me awake most nights is the immersive experience features we are building.

    Virtual Reality (VR) for scientific laboratory experiments, Augmented Reality (AR) for excursions and Mixed Reality (MR) for history, social studies, languages and arts lessons!

    There's just so much to The iDesk!

    On Wednesday, January 1st 2019, I will unveil The iSchool CLOUD Desk!

    Join me (either through any of the live stream channels to be announced soon or request for an invite) for a practical demonstration of how The iSchool ClouDesk will transform the way children across Africa GO TO SCHOOL, learn more effectively, study, play and interact!

    The iSchool ClouDesk will bring hundreds and thousands of schools, teachers, classes, activities, multimedia books and many more to the fingertips of your child!

    Perhaps, in the next few years, The iSchool ClouDesk will be the only gadget you will ever need to buy for your child!

    The iSchool ClouDesk will be the catalyst to fast-track the future of education in Africa.

    And it's here already!

    It is my pleasure to present our innovation - a gadget (and quite frankly, the only CONSOLE) every child will ever need - for BOTH learning and playing.

    The iSchool ClouDesk will start shipping early next year with access to virtual classes at over 1,000 prestigious schools and special classes from across Africa, about 5,000 private tutors and experts from all over the world, over 1,000,000 interactive multimedia BOOKS covering all subjects and topics from early year to secondary (classes), more than 100,000 new friends and classmates from across the continent, more than 100 educational games and some 1,000+ mixed reality (immersive) activities including virtual excursions and science experiments....
