In collaboration with:
Clever Books https://www.cleverbooks.eu/
CleverBooks is a Digital collaborative learning space for primary education based on Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence. They create immersive digital and gamified activities for students to work independently or in teams to succeed at their own level and pace.
COBIE AI https://cobie.io/
Cobie AI is an AI assistant for coding classes. We believe teachers should teach, and Cobie AI should do everything else. Coding is hard, and it's also hard to teach. Even teachers are guided by Cobie AI, as we have an embedded lesson plan into a smart classroom. This way they can just be a teacher, a motivator to the students as they learn in a game-like environment. Teachers can focus on what they want to do from the start to inspire the next generation of thinkers and creators.
