With so much overflow of information available today, it has become pivotal for parents to introduce their children to outcome-based learning, especially the ones which feature crucial elements such as coding and design. Owing to the Covid Pandemic, lockdowns and the acceleration of adoption of technology, the Indian edtech market was flushed with courses and programs based on such key areas but what these courses lacked was innovative outcome-based modules. This has further deepened the gaps in students’ overall learning. We at MindBox build outcome-based courses targeted specifically toward K-12 students. Owing to this pedagogical model, the child gets exposed to the whole cycle of coding and design. By leveraging STREAM-based projects and a student-centric 1:1 learning methodology, students work on real life projects which also gives clarity to the parent what the child has actually learnt. These interactive learning modules enable us to empower students with 21st-century skills”.

"The demand for skillsets across new-age technology domains such as AI, ML, Metaverse, IoT, etc., continues to increase. In this VUCA-World, the need for skilling, re-skilling, and upskilling has become a need of the hour. Looking at the dynamic and rapidly changing technology environment today majority of India's workforce will have to continuously bridge skill gaps to be a part of the new-age workforce. It is pivotal for youngsters to realize that technology is not just an enabler but, learning additional skills and new capabilities will help them stay relevant and in demand in the future of work".

“The advent of new-age emerging technologies has created a huge demand-supply gap in the technical talent in the country. Our current youth talent has an utmost potential and it is essential that we harness this, through skilling/upskilling/reskilling them, given how these technologies are changing the landscapes across every sector. As per the Indian Telecom Market 2022-23 Report by Telecom Sector Skill Council, in the past year, the demand is over 1 lakh in roles in of 5G, Cloud Computing, AI & Big Data Analytics, IoT, Mobile App-Development and Robotic Process Automation, the demand supply gap is almost 28% and increasing. 5G technology industry experienced a demand-supply gap of about of about 33.6% and this will continue to grow as the possible timeline for rollout of 5G network reaches its final stage. The government has been focusing on the skill empowerment of our growing youth population, to make them job ready and it is for sure that the gap here will narrow down in times to come.”
