Shane Hill, CEO and Founder Skoolbo and Poman Lo CEO and Founder CIT.
It has been a terrific few weeks for Skoolbo with this newly announced partnership, and also being awarded Best Game-based Curriculum Solution by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries. The SIIA CODiE Awards is the only peer-reviewed program to showcase business and education technology’s finest products and services.
Since launching in 2013, Skoolbo has been a runaway success, reaching over 200K classrooms, worldwide. Skoolbo has localised versions in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States of America, India, Mexico and recently launched in Canada. Shane Hill, who founded Mathletics and Skoolbo announced, “Our mission is to transform the educational outcomes of millions of children across the globe and in CIT we have found our perfect partner. Our companies have the same mission to educate millions of children and have forged similar paths towards the same aim. CIT has the number one rated TV show in China for young people as well as very strong relationships with many important players in both the public and private sectors in China. Skoolbo has proven in country after country that our learning platforms are loved by children, teachers and parents”.
Poman Lo CEO and Founder of CIT said “I couldn’t be happier in partnering with Skoolbo. I have huge respect for Shane and his team who have shown they are world beaters. CIT and our award-winning brand ‘Bodhi and friends’ will be integrated into Skoolbo products as they roll out in China and other territories. I am looking forward to bringing an amazing digital experience to Chinese Kindergartens which will help redefine learning and transform preschool education. My dream to inspire young minds and nurture innovative leaders across the world has just taken a big step forward”.
Shane Hill said, “it’s been a terrific few weeks – signing our partnership with CIT, winning the equivalent of the educational Oscars in America, known as the CODIEs Award for best game based solution on the back of a fantastic two months in the US where we have seen over thirteen thousand new schools onboard Skoolbo. We are hoping for similar success in Canada where we launched last month with a localised version. Last but certainly not least we were very excited to launch, in partnership with New Zealand Rugby, our new, free Te Reo and Samoan language app combined with essential spelling, Ruggerland”.
