Our mission is to explore the potential of technology to make education more affordable and effective, especially for those who currently have no or limited access to education.
Problem Statement: In rural India today, the student to teacher ratio is heavily skewed. There is not enough teachers to provide adequate attention to students. Most of these students are first-generation learners.
What we Propose:
1. Digital recording of classes: Record lectures by teachers on topics from the curriculum. Recorded lectures are shared with students and other schools using devices like pen drives, phones, micro SD cards, DVD or directly downloaded from Internet at no extra cost. Build a pool of self-sustainable digital lessons and a social community.
2. Student response systems: Encourage students to be participative, record their responses and transmitted to the teachers.
What are the benefits:
