I’ve read plenty of articles about how technology is making kids dumber. Video games, Facebook, and text messaging are usually the culprits. I’m more interested in how technology is making kids smarter. My expectations for kids who are currently in elementary school are through the roof because of the tools they and their teachers have access to. Wireless Generation is a Brooklyn, NY based company that is at the forefront of education technology. The company was founded by two Rhodes Scholars who “shared a passion for technology and an interest in what it could do for K-12 teachers.” Within ten years they built this passion into a company that was sold for $360 million. That’s what’s cool about the education market–you can feel like you’re doing good and still play in a market with big money.
Go Wireless’ offerings include enterprise education data systems, adaptive curriculums, assessment an analysis tools, school turnaround services, open source initiatives, and lots more. They seem to identify pain points that are common to many education systems, and then build solutions that combine “a deep understanding of teaching and learning with unparalleled technological expertise and a proven ability to bring innovations to scale.” While I don’t see any hard numbers on educational improvement posted on the Wireless Generation website, you do have to like that they’re working with more than 3 million students and 200,000 educators across 50 states. If you’d like to help grow that reach, take a look at Wireless Generation’s Jobs page. Right now they have a ton of opportunities for new or recent grads:
