One Personal Quality
The desire to modernize the present education system is one of my priorities, and also my strongest area of competency. From my childhood, I have been good at studies, and the field of Biological Sciences really appealed me. The CGPA grades, which I received in my academics was appreciable and excellent throughout. While studying at high school, I helped my peers with academics and made them understand various topics with ease and simplicity. I was respected and appreciated for my efforts both my by teachers and my friends. During those days, I always thought about an Interactive Educational System, which could be maneuvered in the best interest of the student. In academics, all our mentors are highly competent, but the need for different students seems to vary. Such needs may be due to general intelligence, language barriers or cognitive barriers.
I believed in a concept of “Same Understanding-Same Reflection.” The idea was deeply rooted in me. My quest for innovation always made me competent and helped me to find new and novel solutions. When the call comes in the education system, I become extremely motivated in delivering my expertise. One such opportunity came in my life, when my uncle, who is also the owner of snaphomework.com, asked me to join his organization. The company provided homework and educational solutions in the field of academics and wanted to develop an “App”. I was asked to join the beta-testing arm of the development process and was designated as Junior Marketing Executive.
While receiving feedback from the prospective clients, I realized that clients want something which could be easily maneuvered. My objective was to modify the app in such a way, so even a weak student could benefit from the applications of the app. My first target clientele were from India, and I received overwhelming feedback regarding the objectives and utilities of the proposed application of the “App.” I intentionally targeted India, as the country is unified through diversity. Therefore, the interactions of mentors with their students often suffered from communication gaps. I believed that if the app is successfully accepted in the Indian context it will appeal to the global audience too.
With such philosophy, I started working on the “App” and suggested various modifications to the technical team. I could relate the needs of general parents, students and teachers on a common platform in a simple and implementable manner. This helped the technical team to design the final features of the “App” without complexity, which also made the “App” cost effective. I promoted the pilot design to the prospective teachers, parents and students and they revealed a 96% satisfaction and 100% compatibility with the design. I got motivated and promoted the “App” in the Indian academic settings.
It provides me a huge pleasure to narrate that till date 200 schools in India are actively implementing the “App” in their academic curriculum, with over 34000 students and parents benefitting from such applications. I get an overwhelming response in the feedback section of the “App Store”. This innovation extremely satisfied me and spurred my thoughts for future innovative devices for the Educational System. Even countries like USA, UK and France have initiated the use of the “App” and recently, I received a huge consignment from the French Government (Ministry of Education). My dream of serving the society, through educational innovation will always thrive and help me in my future endeavors’.
