In a bid to make learning fun and engaging, Whitehat Jr, an Indian ed-tech startup and online tutoring firm that teaches coding to kids, has collaborated with India’s first World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev.
The deal leverages a cricket-based project to inspire students to create interesting applications. The project titled ‘Kapil’s Swing Bowling XI’ will be interwoven in the Whitehat Jr curriculum to encourage students to create a mobile app.
Children can access this special project after completing 8 classes on the platform. Students will get exclusive access to a creative library of Kapil Dev’s images & videos, where he will be sharing his expertise as a bowler, in the form of tips.
Speaking about the association, Kapil said: “The exposure that today’s kids have is unbelievable and this project with Whitehat Jr aims to inspire children to create their own mobile application building on nuggets offered by me is a prime example of how engaged thinking and learning can lead to pointed outcomes. To be able to involve the next generation to understand the science behind tried and tested bowling methodologies is remarkable. I am excited to see kids’ creative rendition in the form of new-age apps.”
“For children to become creators, we need to make learning fun, engaging and application-oriented, ” said Balaji Ramanujam, Chief Learning Officer, Whitehat Jr.
