Sayema: From what you’ve just seen id like to show you what it can lead to. Parents have low esteem because they feel unable to help their children in their schoolwork There is a breakdown in communication between parents and teachers due to language barriers Bengali parents dislike technology because it is in english and they do not understand it
Shanaz: Our school is in Tower Hamlets which had a large population of bangladeshi people living in it and while the second generation can all speak english fluently, most parents lack this ability. From a survey of 20, 100% all said they had experienced translation problems with parents several times and that they all also believe better communication can improve parent involvement in education.
Siddiquea: 87.5% of teachers also agreed that our app is a much better solution to the current ways of solving translation problems which include asking students to translate. As you saw from our video they are not always honest.
Mohima How can we use mobile technology to improve parent teacher communication?
Shanaz: Read off the slide
Sayema: Our target audience is teachers as they already have smart phones and most bengali parents do not. From our research we also know that they are willing to pay £2-3 for the app.
Siddiquea: This is a mock up of how we would like our app to look. As you can tell this is just a foundation for us to build on and over the next few weeks we will be working with professionals on our user interface design. The app will be user friendly however so it is simple to use
Siddiquea: This is as example of some prerecorded phrases that will be built into the app
Siddiquea: and this is too
Shanaz: Thank you for listening, does anyone have any questions?
