Explain your idea in details:
V-school is an online platform designed to make teaching and learning easier, more interactive, and efficient for teachers and students using online learning. The idea is to change the concept of current online learning, as people's interaction, activities, and understanding are very limited and minimal. Therefore, V-school is an animated version of actual school and people. Every person has their own avatar and they can move around the animated classrooms, laboratories, hallways, gyms, and recess areas. The avatars can communicate with each other through texting, voice recording, video recording, and changing movements and expressions. Therefore, it feels like real-life as everyone can make new friends and understand the lessons more. For group projects and games, the users could be seated at different tables. Multiple animated tools are also available in this virtual e-learning game as whiteboards, laboratory tools, art tools, instruments, calculators, etc. Mini-games will be available to make learning easier as flashcards, quiz games, tic-tac-toe, coloring, etc. This way, STEAM could be part of education, even through tragedies. The surveys and interviews I conducted with online-learning users concluded that 9 out of 11 students lost motivation to study and accomplish their goals for the school year. Thus, this platform is more organized with timetables and constant reminders and announcements. Also, a rewarding technique is used for every right answer in class, assignment submitted, activity participated in, or help offered. The user gets extra points ( in the shape of coins), that they can use to upgrade their avatars and tools besides school credit.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
1) Find programmers to help me in the production and launching of V-school 2) Activate social media accounts for V-school and gain 1000 followers after the first month 3) Contact and collaborate with 3 schools or/and universities to use V-school after 1 month of its launch 4) develop at least 1 new feature every week 5) gain 100 JDs after 1 month of its launch 6) make changes and developments according to users requests and needs 7) gain 1000 V-school users after 1 month of its launch The future needs more qualitative education for everyone on earth so successful and sustainable jobs could be available as well. Learning and gaining knowledge is the power for humans that other living things don't have, which should be taken advantage of and embraced constantly to succeed and grow. Also, it should help in developing skills and provide the opportunity to make successful communications and relationships. Moreover, this power should be fun and entertaining. Therefore, V-school is a suitable solution to take a step further in e-learning and working. It uses new technology to function and applies the excellent STEAM system. Thus, everyone anywhere can learn online as if they are attending their real schools and jobs with higher efficiency than previous solutions. Motivation isn't lost with an organized space and multiple ways for real conversations. So our power can still grow effectively especially when tragedies occur, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Key Partners *Schools, universities, and initiatives that hold our customers and give us access to their programs. * Web developers * AI experts for avatars and simulations * internet companies Revenue Streams The app is free for 25-30 avatars in a classroom but then the user has to pay 1$ for every extra avatar that enters the class. Only the standard animated tools ( whiteboard, calculators, 5 laboratory tools, 5 art tools) will be available for free, for other advanced tools ( interactive video games - flashcards, quiz games, tic-tac-toe, coloring -, all laboratory, art, and music instruments, etc) the user has to pay extra. Key Resources:- Human resources: programmers and software engineers Physical resources: computers and software to design Cost structure software for designing, internet service, programmers salary, advertising and marketing Customer Relationship:- Get customer All schools and universities are relying on e-learning due to technology and the pandemic. But, a lot of students are having difficulties with the recent methods used (they are bored, don't feel comfortable, and can't keep track) We are going to advertise our app through social media and by meeting the schools and universities offering them our service. Keep customer The student should be regularly motivated to do their work and to communicate through the class. V-school is similar to video games so the student will do their tasks in a more interactive, fun, and efficient way. Grow customers V-school is flexible and can be used by any teacher to suit the program they provide. Also, the platform will be upgraded and developed constantly according to the customers' requests and needs. Channels The platform is a website and an app on the play store and app store. Customer Students that need a way to stay motivated to work and stay organized to accomplish their goals efficiently.
I am 16 years old. I study in a private school in Jordan. I am active in starting up new projects. I am a hard worker and committed to my teams and projects. I strive to develop new ideas and help the environment, people and knowledge. My curiosity in different aspects of the world is my motivation to achieve more. I feed my curiosity through researching and watching TED talks about topics concerning the human mind, technology, education and business. I have made multiple scientific research papers on different topics and participated in multiple researching competitions such as Intel and Genius Olympiad. For the past few years, I have been working on multiple entrepreneurship projects and participated in multiple competitions and fairs. I won 2nd place in 2 local business competitions. These achievements drove me to help others start their business projects being part of the first entrepreneurship club in my school and by organizing the first entrepreneurship hackathon for only teenagers in Jordan. Robotics has been a special interest in me for a long while. Since middle school, I started learning different programming languages and participating in the First Lego League (international competition for Robotics and Research) for the past 5 years and I am coaching my school's team this year to spread the knowledge.
