In students, we hope to see improved literacy and numeracy as well as emotional well-being, measured by our SEL rubric. In teachers, we hope to see an increase in job satisfaction, reduction in time spent on lesson plans and improvement in classroom engagement and management.

About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

We created CholPori to tackle low literacy and numeracy rates and dropping motivation among students and teachers in the school system in Bangladesh. Bangladesh has a very high enrollment rate, with 25 million students in K-8 and 679 thousand teachers. And yet, only 3 in 10 students are able to read at grade level and only 1 out of 4 is able to pass class 5 math.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

CholPori delivers quality learning content (multimedia lessons, practice sets, reading books) through a personalised and gamified web-app. A guardian can create an account for free to access the materials anywhere, anytime. Currently the site contains lessons for class 4 and 5 for maths, English and life sciences and over 50 illustrated books in English and in Bangla. CholPori can be used in class by educators, with a projector, laptop and Wi-Fi. Our pilot studies have shown improved classroom engagement, a boost in student and teacher satisfaction and most importantly, a marked difference in academic performance. The site contains free content and the subscription fee for 12-month access to all content is 4 USD per month (one fourth of what a junior tutor charges per month).

How has it been spreading?

Since Jan 2023, we have 3360+ users. During the pilot study we enrolled 51 students in Class 4 in three schools. In 2023 we have signed agreements with 30 schools, in which CholPori will be used and a monthly fee will be paid by the school. We will be studying the outcomes and educator feedback throughout the year-long partnership. We have produced 120 English and maths lessons and practice sets for class 4 and 5, not including 60 animated lessons and 40 illustrated books in English and Bangla. In the next year we are going to focus on production, research and development of the educator view of the product. In 2024 we will focus on B2C sales and development of a new subject. In 2025 we will release a new feature to allow teachers to create their own lessons and content.
