Education is recognized as one of the most powerful aspects for human development. Scope of education includes dispersal of knowledge, logical thinking, flourishing skills, refining habits, and sharing values. Accordingly, basic or primary education is a fundamental right for every citizen of a country. Studies provide sufficient evidence that individuals lacking primary education are incapable of making sensible choice about their own benefits in personal, social, and economic life. To ensure technology enhanced primary education for every citizen is yet a significant challenge for developing countries. A number of obstacles in the financial, technological, social, and political sector impede the way to exploit the blessings of modern technology in this sector. Keeping all these in mind, we have worked on a cost efficient tool to improve the learning experience in classrooms in developing regions. We have also designed some learning materials that can make learning exciting and enjoyable to the young learners. In this paper we focus on the existing problems in Primary Education system and the causes behind them. Later we present our cost effective equipment; application of which is believed to be effective in improving the scenario.
