Voice Assistants
 empowering  Learning

Let’s make it easier for teens to learn using PDA technology.

Our goal:  Get middle school kids speaking freely and confidently in English.

We are looking for EdTech startups that creatively use existing Personal Digital Assistant Technology (such as Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri). Our main target is Middle School (students age 12-15). Our objective is to motivate students to improve their vocabulary, proficiency, pronunciation and confidence in speaking English as second language.
