According to Census Data, 8.4 crore Indian children don’t attend school. Poverty, lack of availability and accessibility are the major reasons why children drop out of school. On the other hand, India currently has a smartphone use base of over 300 million which is expected to cross 650 million by 2019. Harnessing the power of mobile technology and its reach is a comprehensive user-friendly app, built to fortify education. The mobile app titled AAS Vidyalaya (Anytime Anywhere School) has been designed on the Android platform.
The Social School operates exactly like a regular school with a dedicated class-teacher, timetables, subject periods and regular assessments. Instead of bringing children to the school AAS gets the school to the children. Students can attend school from anywhere and teachers can work from home, while parents can seamlessly monitor day-to-day progress of the students. One can attend classes, interact with subject teachers; class teacher take tests, and monitor their progress with this app. Mobile app AAS has been launched for secondary education with CBSE curriculum, while the plan is to add other boards soon.
India’s vision to be a world leader in the 21st century can only be realized with a robust education system. Vikas Kakwani, an IIT-IIM graduate launched mobile app AAS Vidyalaya for millions of students who cannot go to school.
