We’ve all learnt a lot recently about what works and doesn’t work in distance learning for kids, and for their parents.
One of the big takeaways seems to be the importance of self paced learning. Another is how much more effective learning is for kids when it’s interactive.
“Teachers want to engage kids with interactive experiences” as CEO of edtech company Osmo, Pramod Sharma, explains in this VentureBeat article.
And when a teacher isn’t available? Any parent of a K-5 student will tell you – kids still rely on engagement and feedback loops to keep them progressing forward.
That’s one of the reasons why we’ve invested so heavily in developing our voice technology – so that it’s accurate enough to support kids wherever they need to go next on their learning journey.
According to Sharma, demand for Osmo has doubled since the pandemic started. At SoapBox Labs we’ve also seen demand increase – by up to 600% – from edtech companies who’ve voice-enabled their literacy and language learning tools using our voice technology.
The future of education technology is here and it’s interactive. These days that’s really good news for kids, their teachers and their parents.
