A $2,307,658 grant to roll out an adaptive learning software, Mindspark, within 80 government schools and integrate the platform into regular classroom teaching by government school teachers, and to develop a set of experimental research studies on effective teaching methods from the data generated during the implementation.
Poor education outcomes is an important development problem that is worsening over time, with disproportionate long-term impact on target beneficiaries.
Significant promise in using technology to convert education investments of time and money into human capital (cracking the black box of pedagogical effectiveness at large scale).
Disruptive innovation, with strong initial evidence of high impact and cost-effectiveness.
Strong implementation and academic team.
A potentially compelling pathway to scale through public systems – at least a few states likely to adopt if success can be demonstrated.
The evaluation seeks to prove a scalable implementation model by figuring out the most effective manner in which the software can be integrated into regular classroom instruction.Apply for funding
