The Problem

COVID-19 has led to the cancellation of in-person classes for over 60% of students across the globe. With in-person classes unsafe, many school districts have turned to online platforms to continue education, but this method of delivery creates barriers for low income students, who may not have technology readily accessible. Technology distribution programs have been put in place to provide these students with tablets, but there is still a major shortage.

The Solution

To address the shortage of available tablets for students, we developed Share, a learning platform with built-in, easy-to-use split screen capabilities that allows for two students to work on the same tablet. This allows for school districts to provide technology to more students, since schools can provide one tablet to each household, while still providing the same quality of education to every child. Students will be able to complete their work simultaneously, which is crucial for families with parents who work and may only have a few hours each day to help their children with schoolwork.
