Trailblazing Companies in Edtech: CK-12
The Tech Edvocate is pleased to produce its “Trailblazing Companies in Edtech” series. This series profiles the top edtech companies in the world. The Tech Edvocate’s editorial team has exhaustively researched companies in the edtech space to create this series. To frame our methodology, we decided to define the term edtech company broadly. In this series, you will find startups, small and medium-sized businesses, as well as perennial juggernauts, etc. who are transforming the edtech space as we know it.
The companies that we chose are all active in the area of edtech, doing something influential in edtech, well-known throughout the edtech landscape, and making an impact globally. We are excited to witness how these companies continue to change the world this year, and we are anxious to see who will stand on the shoulders of these giants, and as a result, become the next company that we profile in our series. In this installment of “Trailblazing Companies in Edtech,” we will profile CK-12.
Company Description: No two people learn exactly the same, yet classrooms usually offer only a single approach to problems and solutions. CK-12 offers solutions that go above and beyond to ensure that you can give your students a more personalized (and customized) look at what they are learning. The best way to do that is with games and lessons that are online.
How They Are Transforming the EdTech Space: With CK-12, students can go back and learn about things at their own pace, review lessons you covered, and get an assessment of how well they understood the lessons. There are also some amazing simulations that illustrate some of the most challenging fields that really can’t be followed on paper (such as Physics and Chemistry). The best way to understand what they have to offer is to go to their website and peruse the many areas and games that are available. There is definitively a math and science heavy approach, but there are other available lessons and games for a few of the arts.
