Job Description

What We Do In a few years, smartphones will be ubiquitous even in the least developed regions of the world. We believe there is immense potential in harnessing them as a teaching tool – it all depends on the software. EIDU is creating an app-based learning environment that enables children aged 3-5 to develop cognitive abilities on their own. Starting with the early stages of mathematical thinking, we aim to cover a comprehensive set of elementary skills. Individual children, as well as groups, can learn autonomously with the app over the course of several years. Through highly engaging interactive activities, the learning experience is constantly adapted to each child’s abilities, potential and receptiveness. Our goal is to use the time the child spends with the app – around 15 minutes daily – optimally for acquiring new skills. No support from parents or teachers is required. A dedicated companion app allows adults to get involved in consolidating what the children have recently learned. We need parents and grandparents Even the best app can only lead to learning success if used regularly and sufficiently. The conditions for this are different in every family: Some children have their own tablet and can choose from dozens of apps and games. Others are given the smartphone whenever they must (quickly) be kept busy. Many parents and grandparents are uncertain if and how much use of digital media is beneficial for children, and at what age and they want to keep an eye on what their children are doing on the devices. We want to test these aspects in as many families as we can in order to meet the circumstances and needs of parents. Please help us! Let us know your email address.
