Mriya has been piloted in 40 schools

40 schools from 6 regions of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv have started testing the Mriya app. Parents, students, and teachers are testing the app’s functionality and providing feedback to the team so that every school can connect to Mriya this year.

Mriya is an initiative of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, implemented by the Ministry of Digital Transformation and the Ministry of Education and Science with the support of the EGAP Program, implemented by the Eastern Europe Foundation with funding from Switzerland. It will help Ukraine move from outdated Soviet teaching methods to modern and innovative ones.

An effective education system

“Mriya can become the foundation for the most efficient and fastest education system in the world. We are launching a beta test of the app with Ukrainian schools, as this is the largest educational audience – more than 10 million students, parents and teachers,” says Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.

According to him, gradually every educational institution will be able to implement Mriya. Then the project will be scaled up to all levels, from preschool education to universities. The main goal is to help students realize themselves in life, parents better understand their children’s successes and strengths, and teachers remove unnecessary bureaucracy. He is confident that Mriya will change the rules of the game in education.

The main advantages of the application

  • For teachers, Mriya will simplify their daily routine so that they have more time for self-development and interaction with children.
  • It gives parents an understanding of their children’s strengths, highlights their successes and talents, and suggests what to look for and where to support them.
  • It provides students with equal access to knowledge and self-realization in the modern world.

What are the tests of the Dream?

  1. Participants check the functionality in a test environment: they go through the user journey and evaluate how the app and the web version of Mriya work – from authorization and filling out a journal to chats, notifications, and analytics of achievements.
  2. Mriya’s coaches prepare teachers for the school year by conducting trainings, modeling real-life situations of use, and answering all questions.
  3. Teachers, parents and students from 40 schools will spend the school year with Mriya for the first time.

“Mriya is a new experience for all participants in the educational process. Schoolchildren will be able to manage their studies using modern approaches and without unnecessary stress. Parents will know what their children like and do best, and where they need support and attention. Mriya will simplify the regular routine for teachers so that they have more time for children’s development,” said Oksen Lisovyi, Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine.
