According to the Sustainable Development Goals Report 2021, the pandemic set back education globally. Pre-pandemic, the education sector in India was facing challenges – for eg., students having limited access to quality education and consistently high dropout rate. Therefore, there was a rise in enrollment of students in private schools for want of better education.
However, during the pandemic, we saw things taking a turn. The role of digital education became more crucial inorder to enable remote learning for students stuck at home during the lockdown. As a result of the rising need of digitising classroom learning, the Indian ecosystem of startups, particularly the edtech sector, boomed. We’re seeing these startups take the opportunity to ensure every student has access to quality education.
In an interview on The Lungleng Show, Shiroi Shaiza, our co-founder shared that access to education was the #1 concern for the northeastern people, even before access to livelihood or access to healthcare. And during the pandemic, to continue conducting their classes and exams, teachers and students switched to a digital online classroom as a result of social distancing and lockdown of schools and institutions. Though the concept is not new, the schools, teachers, and students were not familiar with the entire ordeal.
Fortunately, many schemes and initiatives such as Nagaland’s Education Initiative were also introduced to bridge the widening gap between students and access to quality education. The Directorate of School Education, Nagaland initiated tele/online education programs to support the learning of public school students. Crowdsourcing educational content from local teachers and educators were also initiated to help the students keep up with their lessons. Along with these initiatives, we also saw an influx of various Indian edtech companies offering solutions to tackle our problems of access to quality educational content and resources.
One such edtech company that has come up to resolve education challenges is NagaEd. The company was set up right in the middle of the pandemic in 2020 when the founders, Kevisato Sanyu and Shiroi Shaiza, were actively looking to address the challenges that were unique to the region.
