How might we reduce the stress from homework?
Customer / Problem
Students are experiencing stress from homework that can lead to sleep deprivation and then prevent them concentrating in class. This also contributes to poor mental health and uses up time that could be spent connecting with friends and family or engaging in physical activity.
Our solution is to gamify homework. Teachers will assign specific educational games for the students to complete in an amount of time the teachers can adjust to fit the task. Using this approach allows students to enjoy learning and creates an overall better learning experience.
Having the homework results in a digital format reduces admin for the teachers and allows them to integrate the results with their online reporting without having to manually input. This will give them more time and resources to support students.
We need funding to develop the app and to create the content.
We would need an app developer to create the game along with input from teachers to develop the curiculium.
