A key component of the system is the Alef Platform, which has three main pillars - an easy-to-use digital learning environment, a digital content developed to engage learning with a blend of videos, interactivities and games, and real time data provided within each lesson to enable educators to support learning and identify student strengths and weaknesses.

Geoffrey Alphonso, CEO of Alef Education said: "We want to play a significant role in the creation of the next generation of innovative individuals around the world, and continue to provide the latest innovations in artifical intelligence-based and technology-driven education solutions within a holistic education system."

He described the implementation of the Alef education system in Harlem Children’s Zone schools as a "quantum leap" for the company.

Geoffrey Canada, president of the Harlem Children’s Zone schools and chairman of NexGen Education, said: "We are pleased to welcome Alef Education’s innovative education system into our schools in New York as of October 2018.

"Education systems across the world are witnessing unprecedented transformations and a transition to a more dynamic education based on new technologies. In this context, we have decided to adopt this program to further enrich the resources available to our students to ensure they have access to the best the digital education industry has to offer."
