Educocity (http://www.educocity.com), is an education tech start-up which promotes & shouts for collaborative pedagogy along with blended learning. People at Educocity firmly believe that modern day education means much more than the traditional one way communication that happens in the classroom between the teacher and the student. Today education requires holistic guidance in & outside of the classroom; and requires continuous parental engagement.
Studies show teens typically have (i) higher grade point averages, (ii) higher test scores on standardized and classroom assessments, (iii) enrollment in more rigorous academic courses, (iv) more classes passed, (v) more credits earned toward graduation and (vi) higher graduation rates, when parents are involved in education.
Keeping this in mind, Educocity has developed an unique Social Learning Management System called ‘GUIDE’ which stands for Grow as yoU Identify Delight in Education. GUIDE is unique in many ways, but most importantly it is designed in such a fashion that Parents, irrespective of their academic qualification or level of computer proficiency, are as important a part of the system as Teachers, Students & Administration are. GUIDE’s uncluttered interface and social network like user experience encourages everyone to connect to the school system multiple times a week, build a strong virtual community and take part in decision making.
This unique and modern approach has been well appreciated from all quarters and recently Educocity has been chosen as one of the top 10 start-up companies at Pitch It! 2011 by IIT Bombay (http://ecell.in/pitchit/). Also Educocity has been shortlisted for the prestigious Social New Venture Challenge 2012 by University of Chicago Booth School of Business (http://blogs.chicagobooth.edu/n/blogs/blog.aspx?nav=main&webtag=nvc&entry=60).
