How education-technology startups like Oust Labs are making learning more engaging and fun

 

Lets say after a game on his mobile phone a 12-year-old boy has been able to master a little more of Calculus, or an impatient girl in fourth standard plugs into a tablet to know more about the bite marks on Pluto, they wouldnt necessarily be representative of a distant future.

 

Education-technology startups over the past decade have been transforming how youngsters learn, mainly via visual or interactive online modules that make learning instant and complex concepts more palatable. 

 

Several of these firms, though, are tethered to the formal model of education in India that is rooted in rote-learning and focused on test scores, which has largely meant linking students to tutors online or helping them improve test scores by generating multiple practice papers.

With technology rapidly evolving and students wanting to reach beyond structured boundaries, entrepreneurs and educationalists are pushing the limits trying to engage better with them. They are creating mobile-first, cloudheadquartered, analytics-based products, with emphasis on simplification and ease of use.

 

The four-people team at Oust Labs wants to make preparing for exams fun by putting friends and classmates through gamelike competitions on its mobile application. The startup, founded last year, encourages students to hang out with friends on Oust as they bust challenges designed for 9th-12th standard students in science, math and social science.
