The Social Learning Network (TSLN) is building a world-class education technology company, providing innovative well-researched collaborative apps to help teachers make the most of mobile learning that is being rolled out to students in schools around the world. TSLN’s founders have spent two years in field research, identifying the key issues faced by teachers and students as they adopt technology into their day-to-day practice.
The outcome is Spiral – a suite of individual apps that mirror common learning activities used in schools all over the world; empowering teachers and providing unique real-time data to support assessment and school-wide monitoring.
Spiral’s first two apps – Quickfire and Discuss – were launched in July 2015 with over 2,800 schools and 18,000 users registering in the first 4 months. This November, an average of over 57 new schools have signed up every day and registration figures are growing exponentially month-on-month. http://spiral.ac.
Spiral is used by primary age to university students, in all subjects, from over 100 countries across the world.
What is the offer and how will Spiral use the funds?
TSLN is seeking to raise £400,000 of investment (£85,000 already raised) in exchange for 22.2% equity (17.5% available to CrowdBnk investors), to match-fund its remaining £130,000 SMART grant from Innovate UK and proposed Horizon 2020 grant-funding to continue growing Spiral as a global mobile learning brand, with the intention of acquisition from a global education service provider by 2019.
