Learning through Text Messaging

What we do?

21PocketEdu is a SaaS mobile learning system that incorporates text messaging, group and individual chat, and photographs to create document students learning progress. We make it easy and accessible for parent and students to learn during Covid19. 

We provide parents and students access to education how they communicate everyday--text messaging. In asynchronous learning can be very isolating 21PocketPD allows for social learning where parents and/or students can communicate with each other through real-time and on-demand chat. Students are given tasks where they demonstrate they did the tasks by submitting a photographs of the tasks completed for review.  Parents and Students have access to curated OER through our backpack function that allows for supplementary practice.
