No heavy schoolbags, yet 10x more material!

Learn how we saved Estonian children from hauling heavy backpacks.

The challenge:

Estonian children needed lighter school bags. The new solution had to be smart, easy-to-use to everybody involved, and scalable.

Estonian Ministry of Education and Research

Key challenging issues

  • It is not just technology!

    Education is all about people. Students, teachers, parents, content providers and policymakers need to be involved with transition.

  • Teachers need better tools

    Often overloaded with administrative work, teachers need tools that create more time for teaching.

  • Students are individuals

    Individual learning paths can enhance student’s performance but teachers do not have enough time to work with every student individually.

  • What about the future?

    In order to plan ahead, policymakers are in dire need of fresh education data.
