Potential Limitations of this Product

  • Students in an Indian context, especially from backgrounds where they may not be exposed to English in their day-to-day lives, might find it difficult to relate the accent and tone of the videos and the pace of the videos. This becomes especially difficult for grade 1-2 students.
  • The lack of sufficient real-life context and scenarios might deprive learners of the logical connections of mathematics to their everyday life, if they are using this product as their only learning platform.
  • The lack of opportunity for experimentation, interactive activities or mathematical tools for problem solving make the product less effective in helping learners make meaning of the content and explore various possibilities on their own. This might lead to a good fluency in procedural mathematical skills while missing out on deeper connections and conceptual understanding.
  • Some videos are long. The consistent chalk-talk video format is likely to lead to low engagement. Learners from Grades 1-2 especially need more stories, animations and an effective use of multimedia elements to keep them engaged.
