the problem

21st-century skills and mindsets (critical thinking, self-awareness, complex problem solving, self-confidence, financial literacy) are essential for children to succeed and thrive in the current world.

 

However, over 60 million low-income middle and high school children in India do not have access to quality services for developing them. The lack of 21st-century skills and mindsets heavily restricts the capacity of children from low-income communities to have healthy personal identities, manage emotions, make independent choices, and achieve individual and collective goals.

the solution

We have built an AI and NLP-powered WhatsApp chatbot called TAP Buddy that uses co-curricular electives and self-learning as a medium to develop 21st-century skills for marginalised middle and high school students in India. Our chatbot provides video-based electives and prompts students to perform projects independently via personalised (ML-learned) and (AI) bot-based nudges and content.

 

The design of self-learning project videos develops skills like creativity, confidence, self-awareness, communication and problem-solving. They also provide students with world exposure to break their mental barriers and build a growth mindset.
