Education Revolution‘s award-winning Socrates Learning Platform uses patented artificial intelligence to create a truly unique learning experience for each child while making the learning experience fun and rewarding. Socrates assesses each child’s abilities and creates a dynamic learning path based on their individual needs across thousands of topics of knowledge.
Starting this year, the Socrates Learning Platform will be pre-loaded on Tanoshi 2-in-1 computers, combining the power of the learning platform built for kids with the computer built for kids. Adding Socrates to the Tanoshi will bring a full personalized learning experience that kids can enjoy both inside and outside the classroom.
“We are thrilled to work with Education Revolution and their Socrates Learning Platform”, states Brad Johnston, CEO of Tanoshi. “We understand that every child learns differently and the ability for Socrates to adapt to each child’s learning path is crucial when it comes to leaving no child behind.”
Tanoshi has launched the Tanoshi 2-in-1 Kids Computer, which is a kids laptop and tablet, specifically developed for school-age kids between the ages of 6-12. It is currently pre-loaded with educational content including Google Docs & Sheets so that kids can conveniently complete their homework assignments, kids coding apps, Gmail, the Google Play Store, Google Earth, and free, easy-to-use parental controls. Priced at less than $200, the Tanoshi 2-in-1 gives all kids a chance to learn 21st-century skills that are necessary for future success.
“Providing an equal opportunity to education for every child is a key mission of the Socrates product”, stated Brian G. Rosenberg, Chief Executive Officer. “Tanoshi’s innovative laptop provides an affordable, education-focused solution that is designed exactly for the needs of young children both in schools and at home. Therefore they were the perfect partner to work with to bring Socrates to kids around the world.”
