5 EdTechs that promote distance learning

Pixminds

Invent the class of the future

Pixminds has been specializing in new technologies and human-machine interfaces since 2012 and has already had several successes such as VR by R-Cade, an arcade terminal that allows the spread of virtual reality, or even Lexip, a mouse with two joysticks, which was awarded last year at the CES in Las Vegas. There is apparently only one step from gaming to the classroom for the startup, which has decided to put its technological discoveries at the service of education. In collaboration with the Inseec group of higher education institutions and teaching researchers from the Liris research laboratory, Pixminds has just launched a new product: La Classe du Futur. Thanks to a huge interactive screen of 20 square meters, the teacher can teach 500 students at the same time. This system is based on the patented Ark technology financed by Bpifrance and the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region.

This solution, already available in Savoy, could be used to carry out distance learning courses in another city or country.

My Future Discovery Course

Facilitates meetings between students and professionals

We sometimes dream of becoming a lawyer, journalist or chef without knowing the reality that lies behind the myth we have created. To avoid disappointment and enable young people to enter the professional world, My Future has launched the Stage Découverte application. This allows people ages 14 to 24 to connect with farmers, restaurateurs, craftsmen, accountants, etc. in their area. All you have to do is enter the profession you are looking for and its geographical location. The application will then display the available Discovery Internship offers. These meetings can last a few hours or five days.
