Over the past two years, parents and educators have faced immense challenges as they transition to remote or hybrid working while facilitating their children’s learning – a problem that is being exacerbated by the pandemic. Out Of The Box was founded with the philosophy that meaningful learning and play can (and should) happen anywhere, not just in traditional schools. The Classroom-in-a-Box transforms any space with different configurations that offer endless experiences.
Kickstarter will launch on September 27, 2022. For more information, see: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/outoftheboxeducation/out-of-the-box-classroom-in-a-box-for-learn -and game
The components in the classroom in a box are modular and mobile, giving children the freedom to explore different configurations and modalities of use. The device also features an artificial intelligence digital platform that offers personalized learning journeys tailored to each child’s unique learning needs, as well as a learning library with expandable content.
According to a study conducted at Cambridge University, a guided, play-based approach that allows children to explore at their own pace is just as effective as a traditional classroom environment for teaching literacy and numeracy skills. “Children learn differently, and we should encourage them to explore, learn and play in the way they do best,” says Out Of The Box co-founder Yu Qian Ang – whose mother was a preschool teacher for over 20 years – of the Inspiration behind the project. “For children, every interaction is an opportunity to learn, and a traditional, asymmetrical approach to teaching can discourage them.”
Out Of The Box has won several international awards including the Audience Award at the World Bank Youth Summit and has also been recognized in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas and Innovation by Design.
Through the Kickstarter campaign, the co-founders hope to build a community of enthusiastic early adopters who will provide feedback and ideas and grow with the product. Supporters also have the opportunity to support efforts to bring these experiences to underprivileged children.
