As the world becomes increasingly digital, young people must understand the technology they are using & can harness its power to solve problems & drive innovation. The problem we are trying to solve is to bridge the gap between education & employment by providing our users with skills that will enable them to become future creators & empathic innovators by using the UX design process.
Digital Influx is a platform that offers a web-based UX design course focusing on the basics of UX & design thinking. The course is designed specifically for teachers & includes lesson plans, teacher notes, & additional resources to make it accessible to all teachers. By providing this content, Digital Influx aims to help support teachers learn & implement UX design principles in their classrooms.
Digital Influx has revolutionized e-learning by incorporating innovative teaching methods, fun games, hands-on activities, & new learning styles in a creative & unique setting, incorporating Social Emotional Learning, & design thinking & aligning with the United Nations' SDGs. The success of Digital Influx's courses has been significant, particularly in the USA, where the Texas Education Agency has now approved the UX curriculum. This recognition highlights the importance of UX design in education & its potential to enhance the learning experience for both teachers & students.
Currently, we have 3000 users worldwide. UX design is a rapidly growing field within the tech industry, & it is quickly becoming an essential requirement for any company with a website or app.
Over the last 1-2 years we have secured corporate sponsors, including PepsiCo & Invision.
We believe in creating a dedicated education & recruitment platform that teaches UX design to children. Our goals for the next 2-3 years are to secure ongoing corporate sponsorship to fund these courses so ALL students can access these critical skills. By providing them with the necessary tools, knowledge, & opportunities, we can inspire & empower the next generation of UX designers, filling the current UX talent gap & ensuring the continued growth & success of the UX design industry.
