The National Education Policy (NEP) Accelerator is an initiative to work together with academic institutions and provide support and mentorship on multi NEP aspects with a key focus to help them create or adopt scalable and replicable education technology solutions. The accelerator will run in cohorts and will handhold the selected institutions by conducting digital innovation workshops, provide access to solutions from Edtechs and ISVs, support implementation and deployment of these solutions aligned to their digital transformation journey. The Accelerator will also focus on establishing thought leadership and creation of case studies and white papers to amplify successful implementation models. The Accelerator will also create the NEP Solution Finder where solution providers across the country can list their NEP aligned solutions.
Benefits for Educational Institutions
The DI workshop is a unique mechanism that AWS uses to build and co create solutions by working backwards from a mutually identified problem statement. It leverages AWS Co- Innovation process, which uses design thinking methodology to identify, engage and define customer focused problem or opportunity and co create prototypes and minimum viable solutions. This workshop would support academic institutions with guided introduction to Amazon innovation methods and approach and dedicated AWS resources.
The NEP Solution Finder is a marketplace to access NEP aligned technology solutions by Edtechs and other solution providers This would be a one stop shop for solutions tailor made for the education ecosystem to accelerate digital adoption.
The Accelerator will assist academic institutions in carrying out proof of concept through its Digital Innovation Workshops and the NEP Solution Finder.
The Accelerator will help and encourage academic institutions to publish white papers to amplify successful and replicable NEP implementation models and new developments to support the creation of a knowledge repository. It will also contribute with periodic knowledge sessions (summits, podcasts, blogs, and pre-recorded videos) to advocate and share best practices on NEP implementation in the country.
