HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
Over the next decade, a billion youths will enter the workforce into jobs that don't exist today. Educators are tasked to bridge the gap between what's taught in classrooms and jobs of the future. To help bridge this gap, Doyobi intergates STEM content with learning and teaching tools to upskill teachers to deliver engaging STEM curriculum and 21st century skills.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Doyobi provides teachers a web-based Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) with easy-to-use classroom engagement tools. The VLE hosts self-paced courses to help teachers upskill themselves, as well as STEM curriculum that significantly reduces the burden on teachers of delivering STEM lessons.
The STEM curriculum developed by Doyobi consists of videos, games and quizzes to make learning engaging and interactive. Teachers can track each student’s progress in real-time.
Teachers need not spend hours on lesson planning and content sourcing. Every activity on the VLE comes with teacher notes that help teachers with facilitation and student discussions. The VLE allows for guided independent work and group discussions. It can be used in physical, online or hybrid classrooms.
How has it been spreading?
Doyobi's VLE is being used by 19 organisations in 10 countries, with about 50 teachers teaching on the VLE. We are in constant dialogue with these teachers via surveys, focus group discussions and in-depth interviews. We asked teachers with no coding background how confident they are teaching coding after going through a self-paced course on the VLE and a 2 hour online training session. On a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the most confident, no teacher expressed a confidence level less than 4.
In a survey of 130 students who learnt science on Doyobi’s VLE, the percentage of students who “very much enjoy learning science” increased from just under 40% pre-Doyobi to over 60% post-Doyobi.
