A cellphone is no longer a device exclusively for adults. With remote learning becoming the new normal, even a preschool child uses a mobile phone for learning. As a matter of fact, from the little ones to those aspiring for higher education, everyone is hooked to one or the other EdTech platform to fulfill their learning needs. The list of players in the education technology domain includes some of the biggest global names, most recent of which is Amazon. The global e-tail giant recently entered India’s $180 billion edtech sector with Amazon Academy, taking on other established names in the sector like Byju’s and Unacademy. The trickiest question that lingers for learners is which platform to opt for.
Here, we take a look at three different ed-tech domains – elementary education, K-12 and competitive test prep – and enlist one platform for each that offers unique content in the most informative and interactive way possible.
An app that stands out in this category is Kiddopia, thanks to its perfect balance of education and entertainment. The best way to teach the little ones is by making learning fun and that’s exactly what this app does. With the help of interactive games and stimulating and creative activities, the app ensures total integrative learning. A key highlight of the app is its unique Math programme where kids are taught addition, substraction, patterns and shapes in the easiest way possible. Alphabet tracing and spelling are also some of the most interesting and interactive features on the app. With Kiddopia, the little ones can also learn names of planets, constellations, monuments, eventually enhancing their general knowledge. With this app’s key characters, kids can also cultivate social-emotional skills.
K-12 refers to secondary education, wherein there’s more emphasis on subject-based and peer-to-peer learning, and this is exactly what is offered by India’s first social learning app Aristotle. The app offers a massive bank of study material and user-generated content for both CBSE and ICSE curriculums. It covers two of the most sought after subjects – Science and Mathematics – in as comprehensive a manner as possible. The app comes with a number of interactive elements and there’s focus on imparting knowledge through gamification techniques. One highlight of the app is its Forum section, where doubts are clarified instantly by subject matter experts. Besides, students also have an option to take up a quiz-based challenge wherein they answer questions pertaining to different topics, as per the class one is studying. AI is used to track the learning process of a student and suggest personalized remedies for each topic.
Vedantu is one of the leading platforms when it comes to preparing for competitive examinations. This app helps students prepare for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) – for admission to various engineering colleges – as well as National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) – for admission to MBBS and BDS colleges. For both JEE and NEET, Vedantu offers crash course as well as Main and Advanced Repeaters. The most significant highlight of the platform is its free access to live classes as well as content. Aspirants can engage themselves in live quizzing in a healthy peer-to-peer learning environment. This platform has a real-time leaderboard which acts as a source of motivation for the aspirants.
