Mastery learning, a concept explored in Benjamin Bloom's "two sigma" problem, suggests that given the right resources and time, any student can understand a subject to a high level of proficiency. However, the implementation of this individual-focused methodology on a large scale has been challenging due to the rigid and standardized approach of traditional education systems. Sophia Edu Labs is addressing these issues by using TikTok-style videos to enable every student to achieve mastery in their studies, aiming to personalize and democratize education.
Educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom's 'two sigma' problem suggests that one-on-one tutoring can enable an average student to outperform 98% of their peers. However, applying this on a global scale is challenging due to resource constraints. Sophia Edu Labs is addressing this issue by leveraging digital technology, specifically TikTok-style videos, to make personalized education more accessible and scalable.
