Ghost in the machine
Startups around the world offer innovative solutions in the field of Industry 4.0, smart cities, medicine and, among others, education( the so called EdTech). Perhaps the education industry seems to be less popular – we still learn within the same walls – but at some startup conferences it is particularly promoted. For example, in this post, you can read about the South Summit conference in Madrit , where Expansio participated in a competition for educational startups called EnlightED.
The fruit of the work of the educational startups are proposals for new educational solutions. For example , while participating in the Kickstart accelerator in Zurich, Expansio got to know the Labster startup. Labster creates virtual laboratories that can be used with augmented reality glasses. The university no longer needs to build a specialized chemical laboratory for its students for hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. All you need to do is to buy a Labster subscription, give students augmented reality glasses and you can choose from 200 available virtual laboratories (Interestingly, the search for application of new technologies seems to go hand in hand with the search for new methods of work organization – Expansio is a turquoise organization and Labster is a holacration :)).
