How can we build an innovative solution to solve this problem of online examinations?
Mobile-First Education: Since smartphones have become very common, can we use the power of technology to continue imparting education remotely?
Is there any way to build a sustainable system of such an education model?
Mental Health: With lockdown & pandemic, the mental health of students has been disturbed. Many students are facing the issue of mental health, due to lack of awareness.
How can you aware of more and more students to keep up their mental health? Is there technological solution for this?
Tools to support Home-schooling: The pandemic has forced us to stay inside our homes, how can parents, teachers & students use resources to continue learning from their homes?
We need solutions that are effective to use & much more efficient from an educational point of view.
Making Learning Visible: With the online learning across the nation, teachers often find it difficult to interpret the understanding of children, many times. How can a teacher monitor students, to see the growth & understanding of concepts?
We need to build integrated tools, that will help teachers to understand their students in a better way, thus making the learning visible.
