The biggest question: Why don’t we see a LOT of
students getting into the field of technology at an
early age, like they do in other hobbies, like sports
and arts?
I’d like to answer this question by taking your
attention to the 4 biggest problems we are facing
today
4 Problems:
1. Rigid Education System- too much focus on marks/grades, which sometimes demotivates
students. Students relate success or failure in life directly to their grades. This prevents their
minds to focus on other areas- like technology.
2. Lack of Good teachers- who can teach real life technology. We are not talking about the
traditional c++, HTML, CSS etc taught in schools. With the emergence of startups, the world of
technology is changing dynamically, with new and faster technologies coming every year. While
the syllabus followed by schools when it comes to IT/Computers remains same every year.
3. Lack of mentors/proper grooming & Technology environment- to cultivate the students and
help them grow. How to design the app which sells? What do users want? How to solve real life
problems? Turning the idea of an app or website into a company? And 100s of more questions,
which cannot be answered by our traditional education system.
4. Lack of Motivation among students- waste of time on apps like Facebook/Whatsapp,
distractions! Most students themselves aren’t motivated to think outside of the box.
Solving all these 4 problems, we came up with
the
Android Apps & Games Development Course
