As the tech-savvy crowd continues to grow younger and younger, parents are looking for a tablet that is not only safe for children to use, but sturdy as well, which is able to withstand tantrums of little ones.

JOI, the company behind the locally-made JOI 8 tablet has got just the solution with the JOI KinderTab, a 7.0 inch tablet powered by an Intel Atom Z3735G processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GBs of built-in storage, running Android KitKat 4.4.

What makes the KinderTab special, however is its rugged and child-proof chassis, as well as the built-in educational apps which was made with the National Preschool Curriculum in mind, as the minds behind JOI worked together with Intel and MyTeach to make this possible.

“Working together with Intel and Myteach, we set out to create a device which can be used by parents and teachers to engage pre-school children in and out of the classroom. The JOI KinderTab has everything you need in an educational tablet – it is affordable, easy to use, rugged and child-proof,” said Mr. Ko Yun Hung, Managing Director of SNS Network (M) Sdn Bhd.

In conjunction with the launch the JOI KinderTab, Myteach also announced a pilot study to be conducted in collaboration with Krista Education. It will be the first group in Malaysia to use the Joi KinderTab devices in its schools nationwide, and will kick off sometime later this month, and will provide MyTeach with data and feedback from teachers, parents and students to help them develop new features and modules that can be integrated into the teaching and learning process.
