Presenting Companies:

Teachley Connect syncs data from 3rd-party math games into a single dashboard to give elementary schools formative assessment data and intervention support. US students spend far too much time taking standardized tests, and public policy is shifting towards more innovative forms of assessment. Digital games can be a rich source of assessment data, yet, few games provide meaningful data that teachers can use

CodeMonkey is a new way for children to learn computer programming by playing an engaging online game. We believe learning to code should be as fun and rewarding as feeding a monkey (as long as it doesn’t bite your fingers. Darn monkey). Our ready-to-use curriculum was chosen by governments, districts and thousands of schools and is being used by over 1 million users worldwide. CodeMonkey Studios has won numerous awards including the Credit Suisse Hi Tech Forum Award and the Milken Penn Education award.

Sawyer’s mission is to ensure our children are prepared for the future.
Sawyer is transforming the way parents access educational opportunities for their children by leveraging technology in the fragmented $80B childhood education industry (after school, early dev classes, preschool, camps, etc). With proprietary software, Sawyer is bringing the hundreds of thousands of educators online with their custom software product Sawyer Tools.
