BYJU’S introduced Social Studies as a part of its learning program
BYJU’s has introduced Social Studies as a part of its learning program, in addition to Math and Science. The app will now be providing in-depth, engaging programs and visually rich in History, Geography, and Civics for school children.
The new program will break down the theories fo the subject through role play, gamified content, and visualisation. The teachers in the video will be interacting with 3D images and animation to create an enriched learning experience. Eor instance, the formation of Himalayas has been explained by showing the collision and movement due to the external forces between the Indo Australian and Eurasian plates in 3D with the help of full screen animation and images.
Commenting on the launch, Vinay M.R., Chief Content Officer, BYJU’S, said, “We are excited to announce the launch of our new subject offering – Social Studies. Students often consider this subject as ‘heavy’ or ‘tough’ since it’s mostly learned theoretically. Our teachers and a team of subject matter experts, backed by strong R&D and technology have designed this program that simplifies History, Civics, and Geography concepts through visuals, real-life examples, and storytelling in an engaging way.”
Vinay further added, “The BYJU’S Social Studies program has been created to help students delve deeper to understand and discover the true value of this subject. We have added facts and figures to make the subject more interesting and informative. Our aim was to add a whole new dimension to how students learn and approach an important subject like Social Studies.”
Due to the onset of the pandemic, 45 million new students in the last 10-11 months have started learning from BYJU’S for free. During this period, the ed-tech brand fast-tracked the launch of multiple products to help students to continue with their learning. The app has 80 million students and 5.5 million paid subscriptions.
