The COVID-19 pandemic has been a disrupter in economic growth, social interactions, learning, and development. This situation however has led to a huge opportunity in innovations across:
Thinkerbell Labs is a tech-driven organization building innovative, accessible solutions to make Education inclusive. Their focus is to create products that help improve learning outcomes for the visually impaired. They envision a society where the visually impaired are independent and play a more significant role in society. Their flagship innovation, Annie, is the world's first braille literacy device that helps visually impaired people learn to read, write, and type in braille on their own in any medium of instruction.
Annie is the world’s first braille literacy device that helps the visually impaired learn to read, write, and type in braille on their own through interactive audio-guided content. This technology will enable self, collective and competitive learning, ease homework delivery and evaluation, and easily track progress. The entire proposition is exceptionally scalable as the content is available in local languages (both braille alphabet and medium of instruction) and can be monitored remotely. The analytics suite ensures that it is horizontally scalable (can reach and include multiple students). At the same time, the variety of available content makes it vertically scalable (enrich the experience of each student).
“The kids are loving it. As teachers, we are able to supervise many kids as they learn at the same time. Also great support by Thinkerbell Labs team to ensure smooth functioning”
Thinkerbell has partnered with the Government of Telangana, Chhattisgarh, and Uttar Pradesh for their Blind education programs.
