|Problem being solved
In Africa, in terms of education-training, the plethora of class sizes (80-100 per class) makes practical training difficult for both teachers and learners; Which has the consequences:
-the difficulty of presenting documents or small objects to a class group
-the demotivation of learners and teachers,
-poor understanding of courses by learners
-non-rationalization of learning time
-the many photocopies (waste of papers)
-lack of interactivity in the classroom
Description of innovation
The solution is our AES 1507 device is an educational tool that presents itself as a desk lamp that films everything that happens on the desktop, transmits the image in real time by projecting it on a larger medium. In this way, all students will be able to access the content filmed on the teacher’s desk.
In practical terms, how does our solution work?
In fact, during practical training sequences, trainers use the 3D digital device to project real objects (a technical object, manual, insect, experience, student’s work or group work) on the board or on any other appropriate support, to avoid the crowds of students around them.
In addition, the device is equipped with a video recorder that records the practical course sequence.
|The film in this hands-on course sequence is published online or on a local computer so learners can re-visualize as many times as they like. In this way, they will be able to better understand what they have not identified in the present.
This solution revolutionizes education and training in that it makes it easier for teachers and students despite the plethora of classrooms; Teachers easily present technical objects to the class group; Teachers and learners are motivated as there is time savings for teachers and a better understanding of courses for learners; In addition, there is no need to make several photocopies to present images and the like.
Unique outcomes and Impact
We have about 15,000 students who benefit from our services in 04 institutions. The success rate is increasing in these institutions.
Our project has a positive impact on education and training in that it guarantees learners quality training despite overcrowded classrooms.
-The use of the device reduces the use of paper in schools by 40%. So we have an impact on the environment by reducing the misuse of paper in schools.
– Our business solution and strategy is tailored and accessible to all learners, even those in rural areas
Replication and Sustainability
Our medium-term goal is to have a larger manufacturing unit of the device in Côte d’Ivoire to serve all of Africa. To do this, we need 1 million euros. It should be noted that the need we meet exists in all African countries. The project can therefore be deployed across the continent.
