We live in an era of technology and innovation. These two fields are ever growing and very often interrelated. The World Summit Awards (WSA) is an initiative that sheds light on the digital innovations that have positive societal impacts. Every year, WSA rewards 40 initiatives from all over the world in 8 diverse categories.
“Tabshoura already has a digitized Kindergarten program,” Fahed explained, and children using it learned twice as much as children that didn’t. LAL wants to teach children that are often left to themselves necessary competencies that will help them in life and in learning such as analysis, creativity, and autonomy.
Our team made up of Patrick Habib and Andrea Fahed pitched the EdTech solution Tabshoura Tiny Thinkers in a Box at MIT Solve in New York on the 22nd of September!
MIT Solve is an MIT Initiative that fosters tech companies looking to pilot, scale and implement their tech solutions for leading societal issues.
