A complete digital school in a box

March 9, 2015

The Vodafone Foundation announced Instant Classroom, “the digital school in a box” that can be installed in just 20 minutes to offer children and young people the opportunity to continue their education in the most precarious refugee camps in the world.

Instant Classroom has been designed to operate in areas where electricity and internet connection are scarce or non-existent and will be deployed in collaboration with the Innovation and Education Units of UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).

The Vodafone Foundation Instant Classroom is transported in a sturdy 52 kilogram box equipped with a laptop, 25 tablets with pre-installed educational software, a projector, a loudspeaker and a modem hotspot that provides a 3G connection. Tablets can be connected locally to the laptop, allowing teachers to distribute content and applications to students without the need to access the internet.

All components of the Instant Classroom can be charged simultaneously from a single power source while the box is closed. After 6 to 8 hours of charging, the Instant Classroom can be used for a whole day in a classroom without access to electricity.
