Sony forays into education segment in India
Sony enters the education space in India by introducing Sony Global Education (SGE) products to the country. SGE is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation. As part of this new approach, Sony plans to launch ‘Global Math Challenge’ (GMC) in India, which is currently available in Japan, US, China and few other countries. In the past, education standards have varied from country to country or even from school to school. There has been a recent trend towards the development of education in the core subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) worldwide. Access to the Internet has contributed to dramatic changes in education, in countries throughout the world. These changes are affecting not only the content and methods, but even the basic objectives of education. The approach of SGE is based on STEM, which are essential in education and human resource development across the world.
