Today, the Internet is the new pied-piper. And everyone seems mesmerised by its music, especially children. The challenge is to use the Internet in the way that leads children towards knowledge and self-awareness, says Manmeet Khurana, Founder and CEO, The Ultimate Knowledge (TUK), in an interview with Elets News Network (ENN).
How does The Ultimate Knowledge (TUK) help in developing awareness among children from an early age?
The Ultimate Knowledge is a dynamic portal, which aims to develop awareness in the minds of the children from an early age. We strive to provide knowledge to children in the form of impeccably written articles supplemented by attractive images and videos. We have kept in mind the comprehension capabilities of children vis-à-vis language and content across knowledge spectrums and geographical boundaries.
How is the information available at TUK different from regular academics? How will it help students boost their Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and learning power?
The information available at TUK is different from the academic curriculum and has been designed to supplement the knowledge a child acquires at school. TUK endeavours to adopt a holistic approach to education by creating general awareness among students.
How does The Ultimate Knowledge platform help teachers to improve the learning practices in classroom?
Teachers can enhance their classroom lectures by adding more interesting information to any topic. As the students are Internet savvy, teachers may also direct them to get additional information on any topic by reading an article. Any topic taught digitally through attractive images and videos have a lasting impression on a child’s memory.
What are the various domains in which TUK is imparting knowledge to a child? Please describe about every domain.
We started working on our portal only after we have done our due diligence, and post extensive consultations with eminent teachers, educationists, principals and parents.
On a higher level, we segregated our content into 3 grade categories [Grade 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12]. This we have done keeping in mind that the language and comprehension capabilities differ across age levels, and one size doesn’t fit all. At a granular level, we have divided the content into various interesting domains.For example, to make students understand Science better, we present situations and events with proper explanation of the concept behind it. Similarly, under the technology section, the latest Technological breakthroughs across the world are presented before the children in a lucid language.
What is the vision and mission of The Ultimate Knowledge for the future?
Our mission is to ensure that the perfect blend of information and knowledge is imparted to students. We see ourselves as a perfect ally of all educational institutions whose aim is to create awareness among children. We would be the go-to portal for students to get an all-round and holistic knowledge.
Our vision is to help the society by creating a heightened level of awareness among the youth to face future challenges with their knowledge and capabilities. India enjoys a prestigious global presence, and our students need to be well-equipped to make the most of the opportunities looming large on the horizon.
