About Me

UtkarshPriyadarshi.png

A self-driven and passionate human with excellent organizational interpersonal and leadership skills. A young entrepreneur who is working towards providing infotainment to school-going children.

It all started back in 2018 when I politely questioned my teacher when she said memorization is going to help you in the long run, at least if you pursue theory subjects. Introvert me just couldn't process this line. Her reply to my counter-question was until and unless you aren’t In power, nothing can be changed about the way of teaching, this has been going on for years and this is the harsh truth. I always believed in mastering concepts and as a visual learner, had a very hard time grasping what was taught in class. I believe every student has a different way of learning. Some are auditory or visual while some are kinesthetic learners. The education system needs to be flexible and open to all. Time flew by and In August 2021, I founded Toonication, an online platform that was developed completely by students for all types of students! Our Main Aim is to build the Perfect Educational Platform (PEP) where students Learn, Connect with other like-minded individuals & Prepare Stem concepts.

All these years since 2018, I researched a lot about the various problems faced by students, and being in the same position as of students  gave me that power to understand it better and act accordingly .I realized the importance of Quality Education and executed my idea. I believe with technology, we’re entering a new era of education, one where students are learning from the comfort of their homes where they are also exposed to the different ways of learning (Gamification, Animations, Snippets) , etc. rather than only being limited to textbooks. Education has always been about exploration and expansion of our knowledge and now with tech, it can also be made Interesting, Accessible, Affordable. Toonication mainly focuses on the 4th sustainable development goal; quality education. It entails equitable quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities.
