Education has consistently evolved over time and it differs all over the world. There are countless debates about how we should approach education and the politics around the subject can get very heated. One thing everyone agrees on though is that the purpose of education is to prepare children for adulthood; to give them the skills, knowledge and confidence to reach their potential and achieve their goals. But the world our children are growing into is changing at an exponential rate, how can we prepare children for the future when we don’t know what it holds?
This is a question that inspired the founders of HundrED, an inspiring organisation that sets out to find the most groundbreaking new innovations that make education engaging, enriching and future proof. There are individuals and companies all over the world working to create ingenious ways to teach our children what they need to know to succeed but the problem with most of these ideas is they don’t get...
I started mySircles because I wanted to help my children succeed, to facilitate their learning both inside and outside the classroom. Very quickly my motivation moved beyond my own backyard; it fills me with absolute joy to see any young person step into the most thriving version of themselves.
This is why I jumped at the opportunity to be part of an inspirational project to broaden the horizons of young people in the UK. I was asked by Form the Future, an inspiring organisation that aims to open the eyes of our young people to the wide range of possibilities available to them and challenge them to think broadly about their career choices.
So, as the summer term came to a close in 2018 and most children were counting the hours for the final bell, I was part of a team of volunteers going in with the hope of waking them up and raising their aspirations ready for a new school year in September.
The first day of the program I worked with the Year 10 cohort at Saffron Walden...

mySircles Finalist for BizMums Awards
Cambridge-based entrepreneur Babita Devi is a finalist for BizMum’s Creative Mum of the Year. An annual award ceremony takes place in Cheshire later this year, where hundreds of working Mums attend BizMums’s 2017 National Awards & Conference.
Babita is owner and founder of mySircles – an app that is a dedicated communication tool for parents with children at school, who are looking for an easier way to communicate with all the other parents in their child’s class, but don’t want to use social media to do this. The law prohibits schools from sharing contact details of other parents. This results in communication using email, text, Facebook, chat, Whatsapp, Messenger; many parents use a combination of these which can become time consuming and confusing.
Babita launched mySircles with a trial school earlier this year and a second school is preparing to launch the...

A simple solution for stressed parents
Cambridge-based start-up mySircles is leading the way for parents with children at school, that want to ditch social media for a dedicated communication tool. Last week mySircles Kickstarter campaign was launched with the aim to raise enough funds to develop this platform for nationwide launch.
If you are a parent, chances are you will know what it feels like to face problems such as confusion over homework, struggling to contact other parents at school or finding out about your child needing a costume for World Book Day on World Book Day! It is frustrating and heart-breaking to watch your child suffer over homework or panic because you are running late for pick up.

myScoogle is a Cambridge-based technology company that is dedicated to making parents lives easier on school-related matters. The company has recently completed a beta test for their parent communication app and are preparing to enter their first round of crowd-funding. The test has enforced the importance of group communications. As a result, myScoogle has rebranded to further enhance the concept of groups and is now called mySircles. “Users recognised the immense value of communicating within circles and so we decided to reflect this in our name” said Babita Devi, Founder of mySircles. “The feedback from parents about being able to instantly be connected to others by joining a class circle without the need to individually search for parents will make it significantly easier to organize school-related activities”. mySircles brings parents together, to be able to communicate effortlessly, create club circles and manage hectic...
Communication between parents has becoming increasingly disjointed with the multitude of platforms currently used by parents, making it difficult to manage school life in a easy, efficient and coherent manner. Our mission is to make parents lives easier by having everything to do with school in one place. mySircles is currently in Beta and the App will be launched later this year.

Parents today communicate in a very ad-hoc way, using a range of unstructured methods and a variety of platforms. Whether you are trying to organise a birthday party for your child, arrange pick up because you are running late or getting in touch with your child’s teacher at school, quite often you may find yourself hunting around for ‘that email’ or ‘contact details’. As busy parents, it would be so much easier to have all school-related communications in a single place.
mySircles is a platform that solves these problems, by creating a tool for parents to communicate through a social networking application, that is specifically designed around the needs of parents. Make your life easier with mySircles.
