In Brazil, Geekie's goal is to enable every child to have the high-quality education the founders – and every parent in the country – want for their own children. The technology platform has been used by more than 10 million students; in 99% of the cities in Brazil, there is someone that has studied with Geekie.
The company started with three products. Geekie Teste offers learning diagnoses, identifying gaps, and reports that support educators and school administrators in making more informed decisions based on concrete data. Geekie Lab uses data and algorithms to identify the student's gaps and then recommends lessons and activities to better fix them. Geekie Games helps millions of students prepare for the national college entrance exam (ENEM) through an app where students begins their journey by choosing their major, the university they wish to attend and the amount of time they will dedicate to studying. By knowing their goals and the score received in the assessment, the app generates a personalized study plan with access to thousands of video lessons and activities. The solution also uses the IRT model, which allows a fairly accurate estimate of how the candidate will perform on the test.
Geekie is now investing to boost results by looking at an entire learning system, aiming to personalize a full learning curriculum with teacher training, homework and parent dashboards for a very exciting holistic experience. Named Geekie One, this new solution lets each school adopt a comprehensive, flexible, digital curriculum that matches each student's needs and pace, rather than attempting to have everyone keep up with the teacher, as has been done in classrooms for decades.
