That's why they introduced SwingSubs: so schools don't have to worry about any of those things and can focus on the important stuff.

In the last 18 months we received over 500,000 questions from children eager for better explanations of the world. Now we’re creating video explanations for every question. You can think of this like a visual Wikipedia for kids. Our goal is to create a generation of better thinkers. We think this is the most important problem to solve in the world today.

    To help K-12 educators use data to analyze the past, understand the present, and anticipate the future. THE PROBLEM: K-12 districts collect an enormous amount of student data.

Efforts to be “data-driven” require costly software, time-consuming setup, and extensive training. The resulting reports, which are often complex and outdated, fail to provide the information needed for daily decision-making. WHAT IS LEARNSPROUT? LearnSprout is an online data insights service for K-12 educators. It is the only education analytics solution available that uses live data directly from a district’s student information system. LearnSprout combines assessment results, course grades, and attendance to provide actionable insights into student and school performance.

  • Freckle Education (ik12)Acquired • 52 employees • San Francisco, CA, USA
    Our mission is simple: ensure every student gets a world-class education. Every classroom has students at many different levels. In fact, close to 75% of classrooms have students with reading levels that span across more than four grade levels! Yet, most teachers are only provided with resources that teach one specific level. To overcome this, teachers work nights and weekends to find the perfect piece of content for each of their students. Then, during the day, they work with their classes in small groups so they can personalize their instruction as best they can. Teachers are doing this all on their own and they deserve our help. That’s why, at Freckle, we provide teachers the resources and data they need to teach all of their students at the level that’s best for them.
