- Top 5 Successful Start-ups That Have Changed Our Education - July 6, 2015
Innovative Ideas Changing the Landscape of Education
There is a lot of innovation that has been happening to the world right now and some of those innovative ideas are directed towards education. Things that were not thought to be possible before are highly possible now. This is actually a good thing given the fact that people who are trying to learn are being given more options about the things that they can do. Here are just some of the successful start-ups that have truly changed our education.
This is very helpful for the Spanish people who would like to learn English. This is not something new because English is considered to be a universal language therefore, those who know how to speak English may have an advantage when it comes to job opportunities and even unforeseen circumstances. The lessons for Spaniards in English are being taught in bulk form and this makes it extremely hard for them to understand what they ought to study first. Voxy made it possible to teach the English words little by little. Learners can then try to memorize their lessons step by step instead of just focusing on the lesson as a whole. They can progress as they know their lessons by heart. This is actually a mobile application and since its release, it already has 3 million users. It is obvious that what it has taught people and other companies is that learning things little by little can be more effective for everyone.
A lot of people have already heard about Inkling and it is not surprising because its popularity is very high. It seems that when highly technological things were still being introduced to the market, most companies have forgotten the need for humans to adjust to those changes. This is when Inkling became available. What they did was they offered the books and manuals that people need in tablet and mobile phone application form. They just did not hastily do it; they made sure that each e-book is very user friendly to make it easy for people to read. Aside from the fact that they made the effort to do the e-books first, they also opened up a publishing company that they aptly named Habitat in order to let aspiring writers submit their work for the possibility of their stories getting digitally published. Inkling also made it a point to focus on other multimedia features and this makes the change truly innovative.
There are a lot of people who dream of getting a college education but this is not always possible given the fact that some families just do not have enough money to let their children go to college. Some have tried their best to save up for their children’s college education but sometimes; this is just not enough for people to go by. Some people deserve to get a college education while there are also those who let the opportunity pass them by. It is through Beyond 12 that makes it possible for schools and colleges to see who among the students deserve to get college education and who among them would like to live their lives another way.
The way that Learnzillion works is that it won’t only supply lessons to kids; it will also supply lessons to teachers as well. It seems that in this world right now, not everyone gets a decent education anymore because of some teachers that are not working well to let their students learn. In the end, they see teaching as more of a job than a duty. The company believes that teacher education is the core of learning. If the teacher does not learn new things everyday and is not inspired to teach, what will happen to the students? Teachers that have signed up for this company are able to get materials that they can use for their classes. Aside from that, they may also get ideas about what they ought to do to make classes more fun for the students.
It cannot be denied anymore that Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) has a very large scope. What it does is it lets people tune in anytime they want and they are guaranteed to get the teachers that they are searching for through the courses that they take. It will let any person study whatever lesson would need to be studied at the soonest possible time. The best thing about this is that learning will not be fruitless. In fact, those who are able to finish the courses through Coursera will be able to get a certificate that can be printed out. This can give people a sense of fulfillment because they can have an online certificate that they can print out on paper.
These are few of the innovative things happened these past couple of years. There is a chance that more things will become apparent in the long run.
