As we have all experienced over the past 9 months or so, things are not quite how they once were!
For a generation of schoolkids, this has meant some of the most dramatic changes in how they learn, and for teachers, in how they manage to teach. This has been a huge challenge for education systems around the world, both in developed and developing countries.
Israeli start-up wizer.me is helping solve these issues by making online teaching easier, for teachers and for pupils.
Wizer.Me allows teachers to create quick, easy, and fun digital worksheets, to share them with fellow teachers, and to keep track of student performance.
The Thinking Behind wizer.me
The mission at Wizer.Me is to empower teachers by providing them the tools to boost their creativity & income while inspiring and engaging their students in the classroom.
It is clear to most people teachers are often overworked and underpaid and are ill equipped to meet the challenges of teaching in the digital age. Nira Mayorchik Sheleg, Co-Founder & CEO, decided to focus on the simple worksheet; which, despite all the the amazing technology that exists today, is still the tool of choice for most teachers.
Nira realized that paper worksheets present 3 problems:
- Teachers lack the time and motivation to prepare original content. - Paper worksheets are boring and do not engage the students. - They are thrown away after completion, losing valuable student performance data.
So wizer.me developed a unique, user-friendly education platform that allows teachers to create quick, easy and fun digital worksheets, to share them with fellow teachers and to keep track of student performance. In the classroom, teachers are more creative and students are engaged and inspired.
Nira Mayorchik Sheleg, Co-Founder & CEO told us:
"Teaching in today's challenging times puts a lot of strain on students and teachers alike.
Wizer offers a platform for teachers to easily Search, Create, or Convert existing paper worksheets to digital worksheets, that are both engaging for their students and automatically adapted to each student's needs.
