Solution description

Our platform helps students and learners who want to develop soft and social skills while applying knowledge to real life-like AI-generated scenarios and counteracts the deficit of practice opportunities and social distancing effects and developing abilities useful to them, and society, outside the educational environment, also helping to form teams and connections with mentors and organizations to develop real solutions for today's problems.

 

 

Solution context

3/4ths of teachers say having to rely on distance learning is making their students fall behind in their classwork. Social distancing has accentuated the obstacles to communicating, acquiring social skills and experience. 

 

 

Solution target group

Students and learners in higher education with access to the internet that looking to develop skills to connect, collaborate and apply knowledge.

- NGO and GOV interested in  SDGs related skill development, recruiting or in the need of help of innovators.

Solution impact

A direct impact would be the users of the platform, students, mentors, and organizations collaborating and solving both hypothetical and real problems. 

Part of our filters will be SDGs, orienting the problems and connections to sustainable development.

After making connections and acquiring experience with hypothetical problems, learners are encouraged to earn bandages by acting: generating real-life solutions and sustainable projects

Are you able to save the world? Undergraduates don't know, haven't got a chance yet. Join SkillLAB, develop problem-solving and soft skills with real-life based problems, use global connectivity, team up w/people from around the globe. Solve the case, save the world.

Solution innovativeness

  • AI to bring real-world and relatable problems to the students who need to develop useful skills that can only be obtained from the real world
  • Focus on linking knowledge and action

Solution transferability

  • It combines digital networking and when possible, the action part can be with real interactions and physical projects if needed
  • The database of problems and bandages, with help of SDGs orientation, cover subjects for all career areas.
  • Location filter helps to adapt the cases making them relatable and useful for students

Solution sustainability

Strategic alliances with universities and companies so that they sustain the project economically and provide data to feed artificial intelligence and gain access to this system. Companies looking for innovators or strategic solution-oriented work would be partners.

Solution team work
