Geekie: Personalized Learning for All

About the Project

Geekie is an adaptive learning platform that constantly customizes students’ learning experiences instead of providing a single standardized solution to all. Over the last 18 months, the company’s solutions have already helped five million students throughout the country, from all states and from 90 percent percent of Brazilian cities. Geekie uses technology to understand each person’s learning profile and customize her study plan, using machine learning and big data tools to personalize education at large scale.
 
Geekie is contributing to changing Brazil’s future by offering three solutions to both students and schools: Geekie Test, Geekie Lab and Geekie Games. Geekie Test is an assessment tool that provides real time feedback and information about students’ learning gaps and capabilities to students, teachers and schools. Geekie Test is the only assessment tool in the market that is certified by the Ministry of Education of Brazil. Geekie Lab is an adaptive learning platform that customizes the study plan for every student, and Geekie Games is its B2C version, designed to scale the impact of the regular assessments and the study plans.
 
Geekie and its team were awarded the title of “Start-up of the Year” in 2014 by IBM and that of “Social entrepreneurs of the year” by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship in 2015. Claudio Sassaki was identified by Wired Magazine as the Social Innovator of the year in 2015.
