About Nayi Disha
Technology today has become an integral part of any child’s life. Now children are well proficient with Mobile games, Smartphones, Youtube etc. even before they start their preschool!
Introducing different modern technologies to Children has its own advantages, but we as parents and educators need to keep a check on whether the technologies our children are interacting with are developmentally appropriate for them.
At Nayi Disha Studios we build technologies for Children that are not just fun and interactive, but are designed for their all-round development.
Our proprietary Movement based learning technology facilitates kinesthetic learning in classroom.
Kaju – our cute baby alien and children’s beloved friend helps us make learning fun for children with his friends, his dadi and his magical world.
Kaju at school –
Every child has a distinctive learning style. While the current education system only caters to visual and auditory learners, approximately 45% of the students in a typical classroom are kinesthetic learners. These Kinesthetic learners understand concepts and ideas better when they are performing an action. Unfortunately, kinesthetic learners are often deemed as mischievous, restless and disruptive with the present classroom disregarding their needs. Moreover, movement based learning, as a concept is almost absent in the present day classroom, in spite of its proven benefits.
‘Kaju at School’ modules utilise motion sensors to detect a child’s body so that he/she is able to physically interact with virtual content. We facilitate movement-based learning in classrooms.
In addition to this, our modules are based on Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences where they accommodate 7 out of the 8 intelligences listed in the theory.
Apart from using different intelligences, children also have a preferred learning style that they use to grasp ideas and understand concepts. ‘Kaju at School’ modules allow children to utilise their preferred learning style thus making them more active and engaged.
Thousands of children across 100 schools in India are already having a fun time playing and learning with Kaju every day.
