ARCedtech is a startup with the mission to make education meaningful and transformative through innovative products that will make our young learners kind, ethical and globally-responsible citizens of the world.
We are the ARC that completes the circle of learning by providing holistic education solutions. We offer 360 degree solutions towards Education for Sustainable Development.
The material we have designed on the goals includes SDG Handbooks for Students, SDG Handbooks for Educators, Digital Solutions for Students and Educators, SDG Workshops for Educators and SDG-based Projects for Students.
Solutions for students comprise Student Handbooks for Grades 1-8 where the SDGs are introduced to students in a graded manner. These books can be easily integrated in the school curriculum and do not require separate subject slot. Subject integration and worksheet format allow seamless assimilation of the SDGs into the school calendar. Moreover, they impart happiness, value education, social-emotional learning, and make the students responsible global citizens.
There is an international consensus that ESD should be “embedded in the whole curriculum, not [taught] as a separate subject” (UNESCO). Be the Change is based on the principle that embedding and integration are necessary to the concept of education ‘for’ sustainable development, which is more impactful than education ‘about’ sustainable development.
