Brett commented on Math4ALL — Edtech accessible in 95 languages

I love your idea of helping children learn math in their native language. And Math4ALL gameplay is extremely engaging. My kids didn't want to stop playing AND they were learning too. Many edtech products are very light in learning, heavy in the fun/addictive nature. Math4ALL is heavy on learning yet also extremely engaging which is the perfect balance!

And this one: "However, some educators believe that with EdTech it can be easy to lose track of what really matters – a strong emotional connection between student and teacher. In Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s fourth annual Educator Confidence Report – a survey of over 1,200 teachers and administrators – created in collaboration with YouGov, 94 percent of educators stated the most important quality determining a positive learning environment is the connection between student and teacher.

Such a connection is unlikely to be replicated by an e-learning app or a chatbot. However, what EdTech can do is make the lives of educators easier by streamlining their marking process, entering grades and gathering information about students’ individual abilities. This leaves educators free to focus on the part of teaching that matters most to them – connecting with their students.
