Hull-based startup Good2Learn embraces the power of digital to enhance children’s learning experiences.

Founded by Paul Mandalia, the educational platform is set to launch in 2018, providing school-aged children with interactive online lessons that bridge the gap between learning in the classroom and at home.

The project, which is based at the C4DI on Queen Street, is aimed at families that are keen to improve their children’s learning but struggle to do so in a meaningful way that truly aligns with the ever-changing national curriculum.

“I think for many parents, it’s quite frustrating to help kids with their homework,” says Paul. “Schools teach things in a very different way to how we were perhaps shown. With our short, bite-sized lessons, both grownups and children are able to reinforce classroom learning.”

At the moment, the lessons will cover topics in both English and Maths, but the team has plans to expand across other subjects in the future. The lessons are designed by local teachers, whilst the digital side is crafted by designers, animators and writers who work at the C4DI.

Good2Learn recently welcomed ten Year Six children from St. George’s Primary for a taster afternoon. The aim was to get feedback from kids that will be using this platform from next year, alongside advice from teachers.

“For us, this was a massive milestone. The day was extremely eye-opening and it was incredible to see the positive response from the young students, who were engrossed in the lessons,” Paul enthuses. “They didn’t hold back when asked for feedback, either. Kids can be brutally honest, but they remained mature and gave us some tips on how we can improve – for example, additional, more in-depth videos on trickier topics.”

The handy product comes at a time when both pupils and teachers are relying more and more on mobile devices for information and entertainment. The videos and interactive exercises will be fully accessible on tablets, phones and laptops.

“The platform tracks progress and rewards pupils on their achievements,” Paul explains. “It also notifies parents of their child’s achievements and what they may need to brush up on.”

Currently, Paul is looking to build relationships with even more schools, as well as connect with parents.

“We believe that a partnership between us, parents and schools will help the next generation to reach their full potential.”
