The COVID-19 pandemic has brought panic into our lives, but also an opportunity to use technology as an innovative tool for our children’s crucial learning and academic success. In-class learning has been globally suspended for our children’s safety.
Being a social enterprise, MathProject responded to the COVID-19 situation swiftly leveraging technology to continue its mission of instilling the love of math in children. For years, MathProject’s primary focus has been to boost a child’s motivation to master math skills. Fortunately, MathProject has been developing an online-learning platform since last year for students who could not attend the on-site sessions. After some testing and prototyping, the program now has a solid platform to host live online sessions that allow students to interact with one another and their teachers in real-time. Students take part in learning math word problems and building strong numeration skills
MathProject’s Transition to Online Learning
At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, MathProject swung into action and took its research and development into overdrive as it deployed its online-learning experience across all of its classes to support all of their grade 1 to 12 students. An astounding 100% of its students successfully transitioned to its online-learning solution within one weekend. Shehreen Zaman, founder of MathProject opines,
“Most online sessions involve watching a previously recorded session where the teacher is not present. Listening to recorded lessons is boring for students, whereas our live, interactive online sessions create a social bond. It has all the advantages of in-class learning while being on a remote platform to ensure student’s health and safety”.
Online learning is a great solution while students are out of the classroom, and in the long run, it may become a critical tool in how students learn. Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, MathProject is resolute in using technology to fundamentally transform the learning experience.
