What we belief...
Shoulders of Giants (SoG) is an EdTech software, outsourcing and consultancy start-up from Finland. Our Team & Advisor Board of almost 10 people includes experts in IT, EdTech, Pedagogy and User Interface Design. SoG operates in Finland but we are also broadening our networks in the EU area and South America to coordinate educational development projects between these continents. The aim of our solutions is to free the resources of both schools and educators by tackling the core economic and pedagogic challenges institutions face in the 21st century.
SoG firmly believes that Finland should be globally on the front row in enabling the Democratization of Learning with the combination of top-class learning solutions and scalable Artificial Intelligence technologies - The possibility to learn and get support for it are the basic human rights that should be enabled to all individuals on Planet Earth, regardless of time and space. We aim to fully utilize the global potential of AI tutoring in Mass Learning Management with Co-Teacher - Starting from January 2018 we are open for new use cases and pilots both in the public and private sector.
Our first AI-based software addon SoG Co-Teacher (read more from the Co-Teacher page here) aims to decrease the amount of drop-out students and workload of teachers in schools. Co-Teacher is the middle-man to meet the needs of both parties in learning management.
In terms of business ethics, Shoulders of Giants stands for Corporate Social Responsibility and Transparency. Employees are encouraged through Autonomy and Empowerment to become Giants in their work.
The aim of SoG’s solutions is to free the resources of both schools and educators by tackling the core economic and pedagogic challenges institutions face in the 21st century - We also apply our AI solutions and expert services in B2B, public and consumer sectors to accelerate organizational learning (trainings etc.) and the learning impact of individual learners.
