MiVirtue, an Edtech platform based in Chandigarh, has recently made a national launch announcement that is expected to have a significant impact on the education sector across the country. The platform is on a mission to provide technology-based formal education that teaches moral, social, and emotional values to motivate children to achieve greater success in life.
The platform has been created by a team of educationists, child behaviour analysts, and child psychologists, with a strong emphasis on moral education, social-emotional development, and personality growth. MiVirtue offers 8 core values through their live sessions, presented in an interactive format that features relatable characters and situations from a child’s everyday life. Animated video stories are used to facilitate visual learning, and each session includes worksheets and interactive activities to help children practice the values they have learned.
So, in an exclusive interview with the brain behind this visionary initiative, we sat down with Vishal Kumar, Founder and CEO of MiVirtue, to delve deeper into the platform’s idea.
What encouraged you to lay the foundation stone of MiVirtue?
I firmly believe that the world is currently so invested in developing robots and AI but what is being missed is the importance and cruciality of value education and so MiVirtue brings India’s first Value based education platform for kids to spend time and attention to learning right values to face the world with the right attitude and mindset.
Our mission is to identify, design, develop and implement solutions that contribute to the moral, social and emotional development of students through technology-based formal education of virtues, further helping in personality development. MiVirtue aims to teach the youth of tomorrow good values and responsibilities that shall help them identify the purpose of life, ways of giving back to the society and differentiate between good & bad and right & wrong.
How do you envision MiVirtue will impact its users?
MiVirtue, a specialized value-based learning platform will play a significant role in helping young minds learn moral values of life, judge what is right and wrong as well as learn key value skills like Gratitude, Forgiveness, Compassion & Empathy, Teamwork, Honesty, Respect, Sharing and Equality, which they will not learn from their mainstream education classes. The platform aims to boost the morale of today’s children which will not only make them successful in their careers but establish trust and respect in the society and community they belong to.
Tell us more about how the platform has been designed.
The platform is uniquely patented, secured and designed with modern technology ensuring experience-based learning. Each enrolled student will be guided by a team of specialized teachers & educators who will help with the essential understanding and implementation of moral virtues in everyday situations through live classes consisting of storytelling, animated videos, homework assignments & assessments, problem-solving activities much more to help children reach the full potential of their Value Quotient & Emotional Quotient.
MiVirtue Value Learning Certificate will play a paramount role in students’ careers by helping them in forming strategic decisions, building a better understanding between right & wrong, understanding feelings of themselves & others, drive and balance their emotions and quickly adapt to new outlooks and learnings, and build the future they want.
