K-12 tutorial edtech company, BYJU’S, will now also provide Social Studies as a part of its learning program. Its app will in addition to Math and Science, offer in-depth, visually rich and engaging programs in History, Civics, and Geography for school children. Students can access this new subject for free by downloading the BYJU’S Learning App from Playstore or Appstore.
Vinay M.R., Chief Content Officer, BYJU’S, said on the launch, “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 learnt theoretically. Our teachers and team of subject matter experts, backed by strong R&D and technology has designed this program that simplifies History, Civics, and Geography concepts through visuals, real-life examples and storytelling in an engaging way.”
This new Social Studies program breaks down the theories through role play, visualisation, and gamified content thereby offering students an immersive learning experience. Teachers in the video interact with 3D images and animation to create an enriching learning experience for students.
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.”
The company claims 80 million students on the app and 5.5 million paid subscriptions for its learning programs.
