“I was teacher with digital material, and there is huge gap between teachers. A main idea was to do something easy to use for teachers, so everything had to be in the same place.
An easy use concept might be the key of success for this startup. The game works on the repetition – with a increased difficulty. The pupils get rewarded with coins that unlock videos and other games.
The game have been tested in 3 Classes on 20 Schools and the first feedback from pupils describes that the game is “so awesome that they were playing it on the free time.”
The official launch for the english version will be November 11th. The Finnish version is already released for schools in Finland allowing teachers to create their own games to use with their pupils.
