Hashtag Accounting paving the way for digital learning in Bangladesh
This year has seen a shift in the way we operate; people, businesses, and institutions of all kinds have been made to adapt to "the new normal". One of the biggest, and perhaps most beneficial, changes has been to the education system. Employing a completely digital approach has been beneficial to many students in a multitude of ways. The introduction of Hashtag Accounting, too, has aided a large number of students during this time.
Hashtag Accounting is a platform committed to providing tuitions to Ordinary and Advanced level students, founded about two years ago by Sameer Altaf. They cover both Cambridge and Edexcel curriculums. Altaf has been in the teaching profession for 15 years, and is also the founder of The Coach -- a renowned coaching centre for students in 1st grade to A'levels. He describes Hashtag Accounting as his personal brand, as a teacher.
Hashtag Accounting began online classes a week after lockdown was first imposed, in late March this year, in order to ensure that the pandemic didn't hamper their students' education. They have been heavily active online in the recent months. They currently operate digitally across the country, with students from Sylhet and Chittagong making up a significant portion of their student body. The shift to online classes has made distance an insignificant factor, hence making quality education more accessible to students countrywide.
Altaf's vision is to establish Hashtag Accounting as a one-stop solution for O and A level students of Bangladesh. Aiming to create a presence in almost all major internet platforms, Hashtag Accounting has an active YouTube channel, where selective lectures are uploaded for the general public. They can be also found on Facebook and Instagram, encouraging more interaction between the students and teacher. Having a presence on these highly popular platforms allows Hashtag Accounting to be accessible to a wider community.
Sameer Altaf believes the transition to online learning has been beneficial for both teachers and students. Education pressure has increased exponentially in the recent years, making time management a huge struggle for most students. Add to that the infamous traffic of Dhaka city, and actual learning process is severely hampered for the students. However, these issues no longer need to be taken into account for online classes. Moreover, teachers make an extra effort to interact with students individually, in order to ensure there is no slacking off on their end -- thus, more effective lessons can be provided.
With Hashtag Accounting, Altaf aims to continue aiding future generations to learn and grow, despite current circumstances. Adapting to changes has been an important lesson that they have helped students learn, leading by example. Hashtag Accounting makes learning fun and convenient, while also encouraging more teacher-student interaction. With all these positive developments seen in the way they teach, Altaf plans on continuing online classes even after the pandemic, and further reinforce a more advanced, more convenient digital learning method.
