Divide and rule(r) – why technology means we are living in a global classroom now

July 15, 2013 — Leave a comment

From Illinois in the United States to our home patch in Bath, we seem to have struck a winning formula with DoodleMaths. We’ve had some great media coverage on both sides of the Atlantic of late, and it’s exciting to think that both British and American children are being helped through their studies by an app that we are so passionate about.

We really do live in a global classroom now – and it’s technology that’s breaking down the educational frontiers.

It was the playwright George Bernard Shaw who said that the UK and the US are “two nations divided by a common language”. But here at DoodleMaths, we are finding that our way of teaching the universal language of mathematics is going down well both here and in the States – even if we have had to drop the ‘s’ and name the app DoodleMath in the US due to the slight differences of vocabulary!

It’s still early days for us in the US, but we have had some hugely positive feedback since DoodleMath was launched at the start of the summer. We were interviewed by Illinois mom Alison from www.theimum.com – a fabulous website where real parents get to grips with apps and give their opinions. It was great to be talking about our app to someone living 4,000 miles away, but what was even more exciting was the fact that we were speaking to just the sort of person whose opinion we most value – a parent who wants their children to get the most out of their education.  You can read the interview here

Closer to home this month, we have also featured on the Bath Digital Blog – http://blog.bathdigital.com – a website that highlights all the exciting technological innovation and interesting start-up companies in our home city.  The guys behind the blog are the same people who run the annual Bath Digital Festival, so it’s exciting to be involved with people who really want to ensure that our city is high on the app agenda.

The US and the UK may well be two nations divided by a common language – but it’s great to see children on both sides of the Atlantic doing their division with DoodleMaths.
