Please shed light on Mexus Classroom Solutions?
iKen Classrooms are designed with a consideration to leverage existing infrastructure and resources. Smart Classroom Infrastructure is compatible with all standard classroom aids viz writing boards, electricity arrangements, even seating arrangements and other installations.

Please shed light on new innovations on which institutions can bet on.
Orienting children to learn by observing and exploring rather than memorising right from the beginning of education process. To bring about a transition in learning, it is imperative that the mind-set of children is moulded into new thinking at an early stage. Brain-E-Kids, a unique pre-schooling format, encourages creativity, application and learning by involvement. Its ease-of-introduction as well as endto- end support by Mexus team makes it easier for institutions to adopt the concepts of iKen pedagogy right from the pre-schools.

Design Thinking is one of the organised approaches to learning that is being increasingly considered by schools. This learning process condisuretions minds to understand the concepts and apply it in the logical schema to real-life problem solving. The approach brings dynamism in thinking process by channeling minds in applying known information to new and unforeseen contexts. D&T Labs of Mexus Education supports schools in completely introducing ‘Design Thinking’ to Indian Schools.

What were the initial hiccups you faced while approaching these institutions?
Addressing developmental challenges in terms of R&D costs, building relevant platforms, also filing the content as per the board and publisher were the major concerns to tackle. Mexus Education has set up a specialised academic innovations team of 250 professionals across India to attend to school and region specific requirements.
Meeting with teachers’ increasingexpectation of total content dependencyMexus Education has chalked out a comprehensive training and hand-holding programme for teachers’, whereby the technology and its objectives are introduced to teachers.

What are the requirements of localised content?
Our content has already been customised to a few major regional languages and contexts and developing universal content that connects India as a whole has gone a long way in defining its acceptability of iKen Library.
We are helping teachers realise the right perspective of utilising several resources. Therefore, we organise a Training programme as a separate module that introduces teachers to classroom orientation and mixing the resources appropriately to best relate with the students.
