Project Overview

TeleTest Technologies

Developing countries such as Bangladesh often combat against increasing school drop-out rates. In Bangladesh alone, 5 million students enroll in primary schools every year and barely 50% of them pass the 10th grade. On one hand, teachers in the schools struggle with managing over 70 students simultaneously, catching up with the course outlines and unavailability of adequate learning materials. On the other, parents are either illiterate or (professional ones) too busy with jobs. Teachers in school are poorly trained and insufficiently paid thereby having no incentives to deliver materials effectively to students. Students gradually struggle with following text books and develop an overwhelming fear of exams leading to actual problem experiences such as difficulty in concentration, stress and the like. All these factors push students to anxiety and paranoia which affect their eventual performance in exams. Most students dont move onto high school or remain in the same grade because often they are not academically prepared and they fail big exams to get in. Teletest is an Education content subscription application integrated into cheap cost solar power tablet. It delivers educational and curriculum materials that allow for remote learning and tutoring, learning among peers, and improved communication between students, teachers and parents. Teletest Technologies addresses school dropout rates in Bangladesh that result from inadequate preparation by empowering students to engage in distance learning. Teletest is the new way of approaching education whereby learning will be competitive and fun. With the recent attempts of Bangladesh government to go digital, and distribute tablet around even in the most remote areas of the country, realization of Teletest is only a matter of time and will play its part in making the future leaders, taxpayers and citizens as productive as possible.
