EdSense – Digital strategy to empower education sector2 years ago Saritha Keshamoni
As there is an advancement in technology, smart classrooms have been developed in schools, where blackboards transformed into digital boards and students with laptops and tablets through digital learning with all these smart classroom technological facilities , but do you find a holistic approach to education that promotes better learning, a better understanding of student behaviour, capabilities, and preferences and a stronger student-teacher relationship and interaction??
Here is the solution for it!!! A Hyderabad based startup EdSense, an education management platform that integrates the entire ecosystem of education with the overall development of the student as its primary focus. Kiran the founder of EdSense started this and implemented with his team members Vijay Reddy, Sunil Sathyavolu, and Vivek C who are experts from various technological industries.
Speaking about the journey, Kiran says, “Today, students are getting bombarded with a lot of supplementary education material apart from classroom learning that teachers are not aware of. The main reason being the One-Size-Fit-All pedagogies followed by schools. Interestingly we have a world of high-quality content available on the web and schools should be equipped to personalise and customize that content to match the skills, interests and capabilities of students. Schools should become the epitome of education and emphasize on overall development of the student. That is what EdSense brings to the table.
EdSense connects schools/teachers, students, and parents on a single platform and seamlessly integrates the existing B2C supplementary learning methods, digitized student records, effective teaching methodologies, Artificial Intelligence-based learning and performance tracking, and more. As the team puts it –EdSense is an educational system that focuses on the unique combination of “Academics – Child preferences and psychology – Technology” to help the key stakeholders “School – Students – Parents”.
When we spoke with Kiran, he mentions that they did extensive research on the Indian school systems, technologies, and methodologies being used before coming up with our solution. Combining their expertise in technology and education, they developed a unique platform with features that help schools plan, define and implement a digital strategy to incorporate new ways of teaching and learning for today’s generation of learners.
Some of the innovative offerings from EdSense include Student information system, Behavioral Tracking, Education management system, Personalised Learning with AI, Flipped Classroom Platform, Project based learning, Content Generator, Aggregator & Integrator and Online Assessment & Analytics Engine.
EdSense offers comprehensive 360 Degree learner profiles not limited to academics but covering the entire gamut of academic performance, behavioural and personality skills, health and nutrition, strengths and areas of improvement, and, goals and interests. This helps teachers and parents to understand the academic and extracurricular preferences of the student thereby enabling the school to provide customized learning methodologies based on student’s preferences and skills.
Co-founder Sunil Satyavolu is excited about the immense possibilities that the platform can offer. “They have incorporated research-backed psychometric tests in the platform that builds a transferable digital record of the learner. They are enabling new teaching concepts like Flipped Classrooms and ‘Learn-from-one-another’ to help students have better control over learning.
EdSense emphasizes the integral role played by teachers for the success of this ecosystem and have incorporated a continuous professional development program for teachers. For parents, the system allows better involvement with child’s education and close collaboration with schools with EdSense’s constant smart parenting tips.
EdSense has received an excellent response from the target audience during the pilot phase. Twelve months into the journey, the team has better insights into the market demands and has transformed to focus more on the core offerings that are required.
At present, EdSense has a presence in a few CBSE Schools in Hyderabad and Bengaluru and are making great progress in engaging with educational institutions and getting their buy-in on the benefits. With aggressive business expansion plans, the team is fine-tuning the platform stability, user experience and optimum adaptability to maximise the benefits for their customers.
