In today’s world, the application of knowledge carries more importance than the sheer magnitude of knowledge itself. Especially in the corporate world, technical abilities carry more weightage than the degree one holds; business competency, for instance, is a wide spectrum that includes project management, problem-solving, design thinking, problem definition and enabling future workforce for Gig economy time management, communication, computer and technical skills, and more, which are seldom taught in classrooms. These skills are developed best when taught to students at a young age. At this juncture, bridging the skill gap between students and the corporate world through technology and tools that improve productivity and achieve better learning outcomes is Nvoke.
Nvoke Future Learning was created as a business subsidiary of Nvoke Partners, which had been distributing educational hardware to schools since 2016 and had accumulated knowledge of the demands and obstacles faced by educators. These industry insights led to the establishment of Nvoke Future Learning, which intended to bridge this skill gap by providing interactive technologies such as drone and robotics (Humanoid) pograms for students to improve their STEM skills. “We got an opportunity to work with the education sector, in the technology distribution side. That broadened our horizon in terms of education, and we ended up creating solutions for future learning, which is our division’s specialty and handled everything related to STEM education,” states Ashish Kumar, CEO & founder of Nvoke. The company executes strategies to introduce STEM-as-a-service into education, allowing schools to nurture STEM capabilities inherently and better assist students.
We provide schools with programs or subsidies and assist them in growing STEM, thereby removing the barrier of access to technology
The company’s approach towards inducting students into STEM is surely noteworthy; it offers in school programs and a holiday program for kids to improve their STEM skills through interactions with humanoid robots. As schools have difficulty procuring robots due to their exuberant cost overheads, Nvoke fills the void by providing the technology in its program. “We design a program and deliver it to schools (paid by schools) or through a holiday program (paid by parents),” states Ashish. The company also started offering drone program and advanced drone program which has been very successful and well accepted and its expanding into drone racing within schools. The idea behind this inception was to help students learn how a drone works, the mechanics used, and the industries it can be applied to. In that light, Nvoke has received the global Stevie award for innovation in education for the two futuristic programs they offer to educational institutions. Additionally, to enable STEM at schools Nvoke has designed giveback program where a percentage of the revenue generated by Hardware purchase is given back to school to run in school stems programs provided by Nvoke. Thus making STEM program adoption cost to very minimal or zero based on the total hardware purchase. It works with schools to provide a financing solution that is tailored to their specific needs. The solutions include rental, loan, lease, and asset buy-back, as well as the ability to combine hardware, software, and maintenance costs into a single financial agreement/package. “We provide schools with programs or subsidies and assist them in growing STEM, thereby removing the barrier of access to technology,” states Ashish.
Furthermore, the company also offers an online science-based ‘mindprint test’ that helps teachers and parents better understand how each student learns. The test proposes specific learning techniques to each aspirant based on their cognitive profile, allowing educators and parents to give the best possible support to children’s journey in school and beyond. Furthermore, Nvoke provides free drone programs for indigenous children through one of its sister organization - MuraConnect, allowing them to remain involved in technology development at an early age, all the while moving towards its goal of improving the STEM agenda in schools and partnering with many educational institutions to help students.
