16 Dec AI education in China, visit to Squirrel
During the princely mission in China, Lieselot had the opportunity to visit the edtech company Squirrel. Squirrel is an Artificial Intelligence education company (AI-company) in China that wants to completely reform education with adaptive, personalized education and online teachers.
The education company focuses on the K12 sector, which for us is equivalent to primary and secondary education. They reach more than 1,000 schools in 200 different cities in China and now help more than 1 million students in China. They do this in two ways: on the one hand they offer an online AI learning platform in traditional schools and on the other they work with the AI learning platform with online teachers in complete online schools. They work closely with academia in the USA such as MIT and Harvard.
More info about their approach can be found in this article.
