This month we spoke with one of our client members, Faisal Hamid, Director of International Development at Kaligo International. Kaligo is the first digital handwriting exercise book designed to teach students how to write using a stylus and tablet, built on an AI machine learning platform.
Having been nominated for numerous awards and having changed the education of many, we were keen to find out more about Kaligo's goals and achievements whilst also seeing how The Work Crowd's network of freelancers has supported them on this journey.
Kaligo is based on an AI engine, it's this AI technology that enables Kaligo to not only give instant feedback but also remediate the child's work. Finally it enables to the child to work at their own pace which is crucial in the way children are learning today.
We reached out to The Work Crowd when looking for someone to help us with our PR. We were delighted with the ease and speed of the process. Also the quality of the candidates was impressive too. We advertised on Friday and hired by Monday...for a start up that's just what we needed.
The days of black boards and projectors are long gone. Schools have evolved massively with the introduction of technology from VR and AR to green screens and tablets. But tech for tech sake isn't the way forward. What we have learnt is tech is great if you can show impact and that's what we have tried to do with Kaligo.
Because Kaligo allows the students to work at their own pace, by nature its inclusive. When a class are all using Kaligo, the buzz the chatter amongst the kids...its a great place to be.
We have so much we want to do with Kaligo. But continued support from UK schools is needed first and foremost. We are in development stage for a SEN version of the application with exercises focusing on children with dyslexia and dyspraxia. We are also venturing into the middle east UAE Saudi and Qatar big markets for us. We are also looking at other languages with Arabic, Spanish and Japanese having some interest. Watch this space!
