What few people other than school leaders realize is that running a school is an incredible complex logistics problem. In a typical school with 1000 students and 150 staff, there are millions of possible combinations of classes, students, teachers and their respective schedules. All of these schedules are deeply interdependent. Any change results in a chain reaction that may impact every other person in the entire school. Yet despite this complexity, schools lack software to help them explore, visualize and simulate logistics. Instead they end up with schedules that don’t meet the needs of their students and teachers.
Technology has made the world more connected, fundamentally changing how we we live, work and interact. Yet traditional schools have not evolved to prepare students for success in the 21st century. Tweaking the curriculum won’t be enough. We believe schools need a new foundation.
We’re building the software that makes this possible. That’s why we’re building an operating system that helps schools use data to respond to the individual needs of their teachers and students. Our goal is to empower schools to adopt new approaches by helping them better leverage their time and resources.
