I am a.....

  • Teacher
  • UX Designer

Tell us about your idea

Points from students

• Difficult to understand and need of whiteboard as all topics are not clear in the audio.

• Sharing videos of topics.

• Want to have physical classes.

• Concepts to be played in the form of video and interesting.

Points from teachers

• Prepares slides before every class.

• Lack of Infrastructure- no boards/projectors.

• Students are interested to use technology for ease of work and they can engage teachers in different methods.

These are some of the points which we are incorporating in the idea:

• Use of digital board for teachers

• Improves classroom management by creating interests and motivation among students by letting them also collaborate on this board.

• Use of audio, visual and other materials as well

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

Students have been learning a very structured manner till now which incorporated having tests, lectures, projects etc. Due to the COVID situation these rules are broken and more of flexible learning/evaluation process which helps each student grow at a good pace. The interaction between the teachers which used to be limited to the classroom/school can evolve into having a richer communication post the classroom also. Students should be able to reach out to their teachers and clear their doubts and share learning with each other.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

We are a team of 2 UX designers (Manish and Neha) and we have been observing that both teachers and students are struggling in the learning process in this pandemic. Neha being the parent of 2 kids is able to empathize and see the severity of this problem. Education plays a very important role in society and we are hoping these ideas will improvise the overall learning process.

What region are you located in?

  • Southern Asia

Where are you located?

We are located in Bangalore, Karnataka. Bangalore being the IT hub is also leading ahead in terms of education being home to many educational and research institutions. The families over here want to give the best in class education. The schools are technologically well equipped and very competitive in terms of learning results. The community is very tech friendly and welcome a lot of innovations and new ideas.
