Explain your idea in details:

Opon imo Is an idea conceived from The state of Osun in Nigeria.They created a prototype but failed due to politicizing of the program. Every experience and interaction has an impact on development in early childhood. It Would make learning easier,exciting.(apps) can help keep learners engaged, The concept and education content of Opon-Imo is in line with UNESCO objective to promote open access to scientific information, open educational resources and open training platform as well as open distance will feature a e-library, the integrated test zone, the virtual class room,local and international past questions and will also feature a result uploading by teachers to parent which will save the stress of teachers writing various report sheets and will be effective towards curbing mistakes and incidents where filing is not properly . Opon Imo is designed to enhance students access to knowledge and entrepreneurship, Opon Imo will meet students irrespective of their age different needs and connect them with their peers and tutors in other locations and , thereby increasing their global awareness. However, tools and apps are only a vehicle for learning. Used effectively, they will assist students in sorting information, communicating with others and, where appropriate, publishing in the digital world.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Cost Savings: There is already a Cost savings by using the digital alternative versus paper textbooks. This is also a great aid for the parents of students who are in the Public Schools as they can refocus a large chunk of their income Technology Development and Adaptation: This initiative will enable knowledge transfer via the use of cutting edge technology. Technology will easily be used and consumed by the arms and people and this will bring a lot of progress to the individual Improved Educational Access for Students: For the Student of Public Schools, the sky becomes their limit. They now have access to their lesson notes, past question papers and much more resources necessary for their mental growth and also virtual exam environment that gets them ready and ensures they excel. Improved Educational Results and Prospects: Given the allowance of the use of modern state-of-the-art curriculum and education materials via the use of relevant apps, the success prospect of every child has climaxed in many ways. As we transit towards knowledge driven economies, the need to build human capacity to gain competitive advantage has become a front burner issue for developed and developing nations. This situation is seen as more critical for developing nations which hold the majority of the worlds uneducated and have suffered decades of education infrastructure neglect. To reverse this situation, in line with the millennium development goals timelines, developing nations will need more than orthodox initiatives to bridge the huge learning gap. The use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) appears to be one of such promising innovative means of democratizing access and improving the quality of learning.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

It is an idea conceived from a failed project. I plan on creating and developing the app  first then begin sourcing for funding and patrnership with schools and  state  and federal education boards. There will also be a free version of the app for young people who do not have the resource to go to school but wish to learn and be on the same wavelength with their peers it will be  listed on google play for download
