Seekho – Education for all
How might we enable effective lower-secondary education during lock down in India? Why is it important? Education is the basis of future for an individual. Lock down due to Covid-19 is hampering smooth education of students and the magnitude of this issue is huge, nationally and globally. Moreover the issues vary and become worse in remote areas of the the country, nevertheless majority of the students from all backgrounds are facing difficulty in taking formal education during lock down(unstable connectivity, limited engagement, unclear concepts, lack of trained teachers, unsuitable curriculum for remote mode of education)
Two way approach for catering to all students, utilising various mediums to reach students including mass media and internet based channels. Connecting all mediums through some portion of same information. One stop platform for teachers to manage students and take their assessment and to get trained for the new education mode. Peer connect platform for social connect of kids which is missing currently.

Penetration of solution in low infrastructure areas possible as well. Curriculum focused on engagement & learning rather than only scoring marks will transform Indian education. Overall, ensuring quality education safely for student amidst lockdown & Covid-19 crisis. Keeping children engaged meaningfully and ensuring better futures for team
