Cost of Education is rising fast. However, cost of anything is always relative to the value it brings to an individual.
Eupheus Learning, an Ed-tech company believes education is priceless and no cost can be attached to it. Today, Open Educational Resources (OER) are available for students anytime, anywhere on devices at a click of a button. The overall cost of education can be brought down substantially with digital delivery. World class learning resources can be made available to the discerning learner at an affordable cost.
The company aims to bring such resources and have partnered with World Book, a Scott Fetzer company and a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, well-known for providing authoritative and trustworthy reference content for schools and libraries worldwide.
Are you job-ready?
Indian students generally do not go out of college ‘job ready’; even skill development has been able to employ nearly 50 percent people only. Critical thinking with problem solving combined with the right set of communication and collaboration skills have been identified as key focus areas for employability. Education system in India is marred by rote learning whereas millennium development goals and National Curricular Framework (NCF) focus on and advocate critical thinking.
Eupheus Learning aims to develop solutions seamlessly integrating in-class and at home learning in the Pre-K to 12 segment so that the concepts are cleared at an early stage and rote learning is replaced by critical thinking and problem solving through interactive learning.
Conceptually clear and fundamentally sound students will be more creative and confident while entering the job market. A liberal education with critical thinking and problem solving along with a curriculum that is in step with today’s evolving industry requirements is required.
From the early stage the curriculum must expose the learner to skill sets or talent they possess so that they can develop those talents and not just do what everyone else is doing. An equipped teacher with right set of tools can bring out the best in a student who has a desire to learn.
Need to identify sectors
India should invest more on researching the types of industry it can be global leaders in. Software and Information Technology were identified in the 80’s and it is time to identify the industries to lead in the world and develop human capital accordingly.
Eupheus Learning said, “The private school segment of the Pre-K to 12 market consists of approximately 22,000 private schools across India with a base of almost 26 million students. This entire segment is currently our target audience and we aim to reach out to as many as possible in the next two years through our curriculum books, reference resources (both digital and print) and technology led solutions.”
