The latest news and information about startups and innovations in education.
Hola!
Inviting someone to do something turns into an art as we grow old. When we’re kids all we have to do is invite, for no reason, no hidden motive. As we grow we start giving reasons, explanations, we even beg. For a long time, we have been trying to convince you about how interesting our selected readings are.
But for once we wanted to go back to the six-year-old us and tell you right away: Join us for the movement of the edtech, spread the word and share this interesting information as much as you can.
We love you!
