Remote Education

At first, the children thought they were getting some extra holiday. Now the schools are closing for an extended period of time and the children are stuck at home, with their family, not being able to go and play with their friends. Many of them don’t understand why, and won’t be able to comprehend the time scale that this will endure. Similarly, plenty of young people were studying and/or preparing for tests and exams. Some schools and universities are already switching to online classes and learning systems, but they are scrambling – this is not their core expertise. Also think about the many adults who may be losing their jobs and need to brush up on skills, or even complete retraining for new work in the future.

 

Challenges

  1. How can remote education be optimized for children in the first and second year of primary schools? (Challenge from ALSTOM)
    Remote education, in the current form that is practiced, does not seem to be suitable for all ages, especially for young children. Furthermore, parents are not trained to homeschool children at this age. As there is uncertainty about when the schools will be open again, there are concerns about education of the children. Artificial intelligence has shown promising results in different fields. Can a solution be developed which could provide education for these children using AI? Specialities: teachers, AI; Outcome: learning program / App
  2. How can universities provide sufficient education support to students during remote improvement of student engagement?
  3. How can gamification features be also used for exams and online education?
  4. What tools can be used to provide education to individuals in refugee camps regarding the virus, necessary measures that should be taken, quarantine and news updates?
