In today’s world technology is an inevitable part of life and use of technology has become second nature to us. Children should be made aware of how technology has shaped the world today and how technological development will impact our way of living in the future.
HappyMongo is a EduTech company invested in making our children TechReady. Children experience the capabilities and consequences of technology when they build it hands-on through HappyMongo’s courses in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics and many more.
Lets dive into the fascinating journey of HappyMongo and understand how this EduTech company is contributing to the educational ecosystem. In conversation with the team of HappyMongo…
When was HappyMongo founded?
17th Feb 2016
Why did you feel the need to start this company? Any personal experience?
HappyMongo was built on industry demand and research about the role of technology in education, especially in the near future. Most children these days are digitally aware and can easily adopt technology. They are able to focus on tasks given to them on devices and are able to learn better in a multisensory environment.
Our traditional talk and chalk teaching methods did not take into consideration the various types of learners within our student population ie: Auditory, Visual & Spatial, Physical & Kinesthetic, Verbal, Logical, or Social. So, we decided to address all these groups and create product lines that cater to every type of learner. The aim was to create engaging products and services using interactive and digital platforms, and establish a global presence, beginning with India.

What problem is it trying to solve in the education ecosystem?
Our current education system fails to recognize the needs of modern, new age children. It also lacks knowledge about the role technology can play in student education at every level. Though this is changing, many schools and parents are still unaware.
In 2020, the government introduced the concept of including AI & Coding in the school curriculum, as part of the NEP, to give our students the opportunity to excel on the global front. Majority of schools are yet to implement this suggestion.
We offer technical products and training that assist schools and parents with familiarizing students with technology, enhancing their current curriculum learning and supporting other skill development such as problem solving, cognitive thinking, teamwork, communication, and building confidence among others. These skills are 21st Century skills that were never given much focus earlier. But with experience we are realising that imparting soft skills or personality development skills creates more confident, positive and well rounded individuals. That is the need of the hour.
Also, AI & Coding training at an early age equips students with technical knowledge, the ability to tackle problems, confidence and successful technical careers, if they choose to. As the entire world is adopting Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in every industry, our students should not be left behind in this area of knowledge.
