Seppo takes its Finnish education solution to Dubai and beyond
Finnish education gamification company seppo.io has inked a deal with Gems Education, the largest global private school company.
Gems will harness the use of Seppo throughout the organisation, which includes 90 schools with 300 000 students in 14 countries, employing 13 000 teachers worldwide. The agreement also involves professional development training.
“Seppo is a revolutionary game based learning platform which transforms the way we teach and allows students to develop 21st century learning skills and dispositions,” says Helen Loxton-Baker, assistant director of AHSL (Arts, Humanities, Sports & Leisure) of GEMS Wellington Academy Silicon Oasis. “Seppo creates memorable learning experiences due to its competitive nature as a game based learning platform, which intrinsically motivates students to learn.”
The co-operation was confirmed during a recent visit to the UAE and Saudi Arabia by a delegation from Team Finland led by Finnish Education and Culture Minister Sanni Grahn-Laasonen.
Seppo is currently used by over 6 000 teachers and tens of thousands of students at all levels of education in more than 10 countries.
