GUWAHATI, Sept 14: Considering how the pandemic has created huge gaps in the conventional education system, virtual tutoring seems to be the only way forward to make education accessible to underserved demographics with no access to brick and mortar schools. Keeping this in mind, TreeHouse Education is planning to soon expand its educational services in the Northeast and reach those students for whom the school has become a distant reality.
Entrepreneur, educationist, founder, and the brain behind TreeHouse online preschools, Rajesh Bhatia said, “It is now more important than ever to make the classroom experience interactive, engaging, and free-flowing because pre-school children can be prone to energy and mood shifts. And we’re trying to do this with as many students as we can, because no child should ever be left behind. Our goal to reach out to the Northeast is an attempt to bridge the digital divide and make a difference to a new demographic of children and parents.”
According to Bhatia, even though children are deprived of a physical and tangible connection with learning, TreeHouse is introducing new ways of teaching and learning that were not possible before. The digital era has also brought transparency into education. Now parents can actually see the way a curriculum is developed and the way children react to it. Not only are kids adapting to remote learning quickly, but they are also becoming more technologically savvy at a younger age than previous generations.
TreeHouse has also recently started virtually livelihood education courses to enhance the skills of young teens of Class 6 to Class 9. From banking, law, e-commerce, aviation, and business administration, these vocational courses cover a gamut of subjects and immerse young minds in skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.
