Structural Learning is a cognitive scaffold
that helps students build lasting, conceptual knowledge. It’s cross- curricular, cross-phase and works out of the box. Using specially designed building bricks, this new approach helps students think more effectively by engaging them in collab- orative, connection- making activities. This method has positive implications for literacy.
EvidenceB develops digital modules that
include tests, activities and dashboards, based on specific topics on the school curriculum (maths, languages, science). These modules are based on the latest concepts and results of cognitive science, strengthened by an artifi- cial intelligence engine, which contribute to adaptive learning. They are sold for the most part to school publishers to supplement textbooks.
Wizenoze is a fast-growth EdTech start-up
that has developed Web for Classrooms, a unique technology that provides students worldwide with access to an internet that they can read and fully understand. By matching content to their own reading level, Web for Classrooms enables users to discover relevant and readable online content.
MyCognition believes the mental health of
children, teachers and families within a school community are para- mount. The start-up designed, developed and tested apps to monitor and improve cognitive fitness. Poor cognition is a major component and risk factor in mental illnesses. As well as improving mental health, it makes children smarter, teachers more productive and gives families the control they seek.
Project Kitchen Table is on a mission to
improve the communica- tion and mental health of younger generations. The start-up is develop- ing KIT, a digital conver- sation partner that arms teens with the confi- dence to better express themselves and manage their mental health. Personally matched to users, it is available through phone- and voice-assisted tech.
Edval offers tools for schools to automate the
construction of perfect timetables. The approach is a game-changer: calculations take seconds and entire timetables can be generated in minutes or hours. When tested against competitors, Edval says it has a perfect record on student option satisfaction.
