Even with primary schools opening again in a few weeks, online classes will still be very important for the foreseeable future. The biggest challenges are the lack of class interaction and motivating kids in creative ways. The third team, including Mr. Chadd co-founder Jan Gustavo Kuipers, wants to create a platform where teachers and students can interact more. “Teachers can add video content and our Mr. Chadd coaches can help students with questions. This way, we want to implement more personalized learning in an interactive way.”
Jury verdict: “This certainly has potential, but it needs to be validated with schools and teachers. And the plan needs to be a bit more detailed in terms of how this platform is different from existing educational platforms”, Jellie says. “But we can use our network to help out, as well as additional funding if the idea is more concrete.”
The final team, including Marijn Pool, wants to tackle the challenge of motivating kids to learn, by adding a competitive element to an already existing educational multimedia platform called Spacetime Layers, developed by a local Groningen school and students, with teacher and entrepreneur Patrick Trentelman. “We want to add the option where students can compete with other schools with their school projects.”
Jury verdict: “It certainly has potential and it’s a cool way to motivate kids. But we will need a more detailed plan with clear implementation steps.”
