21st century kids are being taught by 20th century adults using 19th century curriculum on an 18th century calendar. – Tom Hierck
Ever heard the phrase ‘Cemetery Effect’? It refers to an environment where students are being taught as if they are going to work in industrial era factories.
Have our schools become that way? Are we preparing kids to become mindless followers instead of creative thinkers and problem-solvers?
We have entered the 21st century and with it, there is a paradigm shift in education. If we are to compete with the rest of the world in modern era, we will need to adapt. We will need to employ technology in classrooms and make lessons engaging for kids. This is where Muse comes in! Muse is a Pakistani ed-tech solution that makes lessons seriously-fun and increases student performance.
Here are 5 ways in which Muse is different from your traditional classroom:
1: Muse Classrooms Teach Through Fun Stories and Animations
Unlike a traditional classroom where lessons can get a bit boring, Muse classrooms are never dull. Our content includes fun animations and stories to engage kids.
The content is also designed keeping Pakistan’s context in mind. So, kids can relate to the characters and stories in our videos. This makes lessons all the more fun! Kids love it and that’s what matters most!
2: Muse Classrooms Focus on Building 21st Century Skill Sets
According to the World Economic Forum, 65 percent of children now entering schools will be holding jobs that currently ‘do not exist’. Such is the disruptive nature of the times we are living in.
We at Muse get that. Our content is designed to help kids build 21st century skills. Some of the essential 21st century skills include creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.
Our stories and interactive exercises cultivate these and other 21st century skills.
3: In Muse Classrooms, The Role of a Teacher is that of a Facilitator
It has been found that students learn better when they ask questions and answer them for themselves. This way they get more engaged in their own learning.
A 21st century teacher has to encourage this open-ended discovery. With the help of Muse, teachers can do just that. Since it contains stories and interactive exercises, students can learn at their own pace with their own devices. If they have questions within a particular topic, they can visit the Help Section available in the app.
4: In Muse Classrooms, Teachers Can Track Individual Students’ Performance
Muse’s performance tracking feature allows teachers to track individual student’s performance. This ensures that the strengths and weaknesses of each student are highlighted. Teachers can then focus on problem areas of each student and work on them.
This personalized form of learning turns the traditional model on its head.
5: Muse Classrooms Nurture a Passion for Learning
We at Muse believe that children have this innate sense of wonder and curiosity. They want to learn, explore and create. Something happens in schools that kills all of that.
With fun stories and animations and gamified exercises, Muse is transforming the traditional model of education.
Our content is designed to nurture this desire to learn. After three years of user testing, we have finally found that perfect spot.
