The pandemic due to Covid-19 has introduced lots of changes in our teaching methods and techniques. The Educational Institutions viz. Schools, Colleges, Tuition, learning centres have remained closed continuously since March last year, making the students confined to their homes and attending online classes. The onus of extra curricular development in the young minds has switched over from the teachers to the parents. Hence the demand for Educational Apps or Edtech Apps in short, has cropped up phenomenally.
Technology and Education
One thing to be highlighted here as technology has no doubt proven to be useful in education. But it has its worth when employed thoughtfully. Mere surfing on internet to collect piece of information does not add to any meaning. Online teaching methods in India have come of age thanks to Video conferencing, web conferencing tools offered by Zoom, Google Meet and many more brands. Along with these tools there are online tuitions being attended by students from home taking help of number of Apps referred to Edtech Apps which are as easy to download and use like 1,2, 3, Go.
Use of Apps in Education
Like we use common Apps for communication like WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. In the same way we have many Edtech Apps which are used in teaching our kids like Kahoot, a free educational App that enables virtual group studies, King of Maths, Quick Math, ScratchJr, Google Arts and Culture and the list goes on. One has to smartly adopt the right App for gaining knowledge on specific subject or a lesson. One such App today we are reviewing is Yellow Class App. On the onset we found it to be quite an informative channel in place and that too in a niche of Extra Curricular activities which has become a talking point due to lockdowns and home bound kids. Small kids can be distracted easily so parents have to keep a check on their kids.

There are quite a handful of Edtech Apps on Google Play Store. Most of these are catering to K-12 academic learning space. There are fewer Apps that offer extra-curricular activities learning especially to the younger kids in age group 5 to 12. The App offers a hands on solution for parents looking to instill the habit of hobbies or extra-curricular activities for their kids. The curriculum is designed on a learning model which brings back the childhood. Though the screen causes strain and affects the eyesight of the young generation, but there is no other alternative to this.

It was setup in the year 2020 with a mission to enable young parents to get the best hobby classes for their kids from the most inspiring mentors in the world. The Yellow Class has a group of active minds working to create something inspiring. Moreover, with agility, positivity, and niche skill set, the team at Yellow Class loves to take up challenges head-on. Both the founders Arpit and Anshul are parents to the young kids and the idea to create Yellow Class came from their own lives.
