While auditory, visual, reading/writing learners may adapt well to remote learning courses, Kinesthetic learners may not; let's change that.

Tell us about your idea

Studies show that there are different types of learners. The widely-recognized types are auditory, visual, reading/writing, and kinesthetic learners. Growing up, I learned fundamentals of mathematics and physics best when I paired my learnings with tools and toys that engaged me in a hands-on manner.

With the sudden shift towards remote teaching, many teachers were not able to come up with an adequate curriculum that would allow all students to thrive despite their learning types.

We want to provide physical learning kits that will help students learn concepts ranging from sciences to art.  

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

Needing to physically go to a school. I believe if schools accept remote attendance, we might be able to close the gap in some of the flaws of the current system. This would give students, who previously were not allowed to attend "better" schools due to their location, a chance to go to a school of their choosing,

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

I am a kinesthetic learner. I know that there are many of us out there who are being held back because of the sudden shift towards remote learning. I want to help people like myself be the best they can be.

Hi David Kim !

Thank you for contributing your idea to the Challenge, and welcome! I appreciate the human-centered lens that you bring to the table, with the focus on kinesthetic learners.

I am curious to learn a little more about the learning kits. What are the contents within these kits and how are they supplemented with teaching methods?
