The Patatas believes in the use of innovation and technology to drive digital education opportunities in the underrepresented and disadvantaged communities.
Our vision is to bring about positive change through technology based solutions. We believe in collaborating with our partners to find the best way possible to fill the gap in the communities they work with.
CaseStudy is a cost effective, highly portable and customizable digital classroom solution that is meant to operate in unfavourable conditions. Housed in a single waterproof and shockproof unit, users are able to easily transport and set up quickly in different locations without facing complicated logistics issues. Its capability to work completely offline is ideal for communities with poor to no Internet access. It also creates a safe environment for digital education without exposing students to the dangers of online browsing.
Digi-Eskwela is our first and still ongoing digital education program to introduce e-learning opportunities to disadvantaged communities and children. It combines mobile technology and gamification to supplement traditional classroom methods to make the learning process more engaging. Operational cost is 35% lower as compared to the traditional "pen and paper" method. The teachers also found that the participating students have shown marked improvements in their reading, listening, vocabulary and mathematical skills.
