As a visual learner in Bangladesh's education system that focused heavily on theoretical learning, I faced difficulties in my school days. Realizing that many others may struggle with the same issue, I founded Nerdiz a virtual reality education platform in Bangladesh where students will not only read but will be able to virtually experience their educational content.
Nerdiz's innovative solution to the education system in Bangladesh utilizes virtual reality technology to provide an immersive and experiential learning experience to students. The education curriculum in Bangladesh is heavily theoretical, and Nerdiz's virtual reality content bridges the gap between theory and reality by allowing students to virtually experience their educational content.
Through Nerdiz's virtual reality learning sessions, students can take virtual field trips, visit the moon, and witness real-life science experiments, all from the comfort of their classrooms. Nerdiz addresses monetary and physical constraints on experiential learning.
Nerdiz has partnered with private and NGO schools in Bangladesh to demonstrate the effectiveness of their virtual reality education content. Research studies have shown that visual learning can help students retain 60% more information. Nerdiz provides its content through both physical sessions and its online web platform .
- Served over 20,000 students through offline and online sessions
- Partnered with well-known NGOs such as BRAC and Teach for Bangladesh
- Finalist in the Entrepreneurship World Cup, GP Accelerator, and Banglalink Incubator
- Winner of Brac CED Incubator
Goals for the next 2-3 years:
- Work in 24 districts in Bangladesh and serve one million students
- Collaborate with stakeholders to enhance content and provide a superior learning experience.
Nerdiz provides both offline and online virtual reality learning sessions. For offline sessions, schools can reachout to Nerdiz through its helpline or Facebook page. The headset and content are provided for a complete experiential learning experience for the session. Nerdiz's online platform is free for all and can be accessed by visiting Nerdiz.com and experienced through a headset.
