Data and technology are as ubiquitous as air in today’s world. They are an indispensable part of our lives, especially for the young minds who have grown up as digital natives. However, data and technology have not been able to enter Indian education so far. A visit to a typical institute takes us back to an analog era where documentation is done on paper and data is lost.

Waste no time wondering what and how to type messages when communicating. myelin’s message templates facilitate sending messages about day-to-day operational communication as well as observations regarding the cognitive, personal, social, language, creative and physical development of students.
We, at myelin, believe in breaking language barriers to ensure ease of communication. myelin is currently available in English, Hindi and Marathi. More languages to be added soon.
This feature ensures that the school management and principal have daily updates about student and teacher attendance, teacher and parent engagement, class performance, problem behaviours and more at their fingertips, making it easy to take data-driven decisions.
myelin is a data platform for institutes to communicate, engage and interact with students and parents. Our platform has built-in messaging for different categories to make this interaction an easy, fast, noise-free process.
myelin replaces the informal communication systems used by institutes with a structured format of communication designed by experts.
For teachers, this frees up the time taken up by repetitive administrative tasks, leaving them with more time to make lessons and learning interactive and interesting.
For students and parents, myelin serves to provide timely communication and contextual feedback, making it easy to quantitatively track student growth and progress using learning outcomes through the years.
Just over four years ago, we became fascinated by the idea of using data and technology to create an environment more conducive to efficient learning in our institutes. What if we could devise better systems to document a student's emotional, academic, and behavioural development? Imagine a world where students,parents and educationists collaborate as equal participants to ensure that the student gets the needed attention to bring out the best facets of their personalities. We imagined such a world, and found that with the right tools, every student has the potential to excel.
We started myelin in 2016 at PDEA English Medium School in Akurdi, Pimpri-Chinchwad. When we went live in this school in December 2016, we started with only a few classes. Here we discovered ways to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of our product, and worked with the available data to develop Myelin into the ideal platform for connecting various stakeholders involved in a child’s education.
Manoj’s journey with myelin started in 2016. What makes us good decision makers? Our founder Manoj set out on a quest to understand what factors influence our decision-making skills and found that these skills are instilled early in our lives, when all the stakeholders involved in a child’s education are on the same page. Bringing 21 years of experience as an IT professional to Myelin, Manoj designs solutions, works on market development, product innovation, and data science

Hiral met Manoj when he was in the process of developing his school app. As a parent, she could relate to the problems myelin tried to solve: schools are non-communicative, and that there was a discrepancy in the goals set by parents and those set by the teachers/school for their children.
Hiral observed a synergy with Manoj’s technical background. She believes that myelin needs different perspectives, and she brings her business and finance experience to the table. Hiral drives business strategy for myelin, a sounding board for new ideas, analyses the feasibility of ideas, marketing strategies.

"Hustle" is the buzzword of the twenty-first century. We must prepare our children to take over from the current generation of hustlers.
"When you all have kids, it's important to let them win," President Obama said to his White House interns in 2012. "Until they're a year old. Then start winning."
Indian parents, perhaps taking a cue from the former president of the United States, have the habit of turning mundane daily activities into a competition. The most commonly used
Of the many benefits of appearing for the Joint Entrance Exam, the early boost of confidence of acing it may be the most valuable in the long run.
"Competition is a rude yet effective motivation."
There is no denying that competing with yourself and others is one of the most effective ways of keeping yourself motivated to go faster, higher, stronger, and to be better. The Indian education system aims to instil the competitive s
Last September, my friend's husband got a highly coveted well-paying job in Dubai. She was about to pack her bags, when she and her husband decided that their pre-school going son would not respond well to this sudden change in his environment, and that it was in the best interests of their child if he were to finish his school year in the same school. Thus they decided that her husband would go to Dubai and start working, and my friend and their son would join him in the next academic year.
When I was in sixth standard, my school started a brutal new system to discipline us: each "remark" in your school diary would cost you one mark from your final exam grades. Coming late to school, not returning library books on time, wearing a dishevelled school uniform, not polishing your shoes, talking during class or during assembly, forgetting books for classes were all indiscretions that led to such "remarks". I was an average student for the most part, but I went through a bit of a "pro
If we don't shape our kids, they will be shaped by outside forces that don't care what shape our kids are in.
~ Dr. Louise Hart
An essential part of having children is decision fatigue: to sleep train or not to sleep train? Is it okay to give infants sugar or wait till they're old enough to demand it? Should they be raised with or without religion? Can you use television as a proxy parent when you just don't have the time to watch your child? Corn
While we fight the Corona pandemic, the education system is at the forefront. The schools are shouldering the responsibility of using education as a weapon to change the world and take us to new normal post COVID-19. Shock was the prevalent feeling in the initial few days of the lockdown where everyone was trying to figuring out what next including looking at Govt. directives. As picture became clearer, most schools started adopting the best practices in learning-at-home. More than thirty d
By recommending sweeping changes to the educational system, the NEP 2020 urges schools to explore technology like never before.
In July 2020, the Union Cabinet cleared a new National Education Policy (NEP) which proposed extensive changes to India’s existing educational framework. Most of us have read about the educational framework changes recommended.
The overarching message of the NEP 2020 is more unique though. In this iteration, the NEP stresses tapping the creative
