Explain your idea in details:
The era of manual way of learning in our schools is gradually coming to an end, and for schools to be measured up to their counterparts in this global village, they need to go digital. But this new method may not come handy for some students that are just average. This is why I want to provide a technology driven school which is cheaper, affordable, and where value for money is realised. SchoolCentra, I have sought to build a program that will best prepare students that cannot afford to attend expensive schools and at the same time gain access to learning resources, which will prepare them exams both internal and external, that will place them on the same platform with their colleagues in other part of the world. Also, it will help students to interact among themselves because it is a hub, converging the students of various age group together on a single platform.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
SchoolCentra is meant to bridge the gap of students not having access to quality education. It will reduce the rate of uneducated children and increase the level of literacy in our society. Also, it will reduce the level of failure in academic among our students
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Description of business model
SchoolCentra is an innovation that focuses on a technology driven school, using the state-of-the-art technology to provide affordable and quality education in our community. My business idea aim to eradicate the monopoly of "only the rich can get access to quality education", where we all know that quality education is everyone's right. SchoolCentra also aim at helping students have access to quality learning resources that will help them in their academics and place them in a pedestal to compete with their counterpart in other part of the world.
This service is targeted on students who cannot afford the "big payment" required by schools that offer basic educations. SchoolCentra will be a hub, which will be based on subscription, i.e Pay As You Learn and at a very cheap rate.
I will like to partner with the Educational and examination bodies like JAMB in the provision of some certain educational materials
This value proposition requires the following Key resources: Intellectual Resources (Intelligent Software for the learning platform), Human resources (Volunteers, Teachers, Customer representatives, Software Engineers), Physical Resources (geographically dispersed processing centers, where we can be physically locate to carry out this service.)
Currently, the idea is still in the conceptual stage, so I would need corporate organisations, NGOs, Philanthropists and good people of the society to support and finance this idea.
