Developing creative solutions to the issues that have plagued modern-day educators, EdTech innovator Leap With Alice has formally partnered with Portugal’s University of Algarve, working with their MILAGE Project and the MILAGE LEARN+ app. This partnership will deliver free educational resources across the globe, allowing educators to create powerful content that has been enhanced by emerging technology (such as augmented reality and machine learning).
“Leap With Alice is thrilled to partner with the University of Algarve and collaborate with the MILAGE LEARN+ platform in an effort to empower educators on a global scale. This marks the beginning of a global ecosystem of incentive-driven learning that allows educators to thrive in every region,” said Caesar Medel, Leap With Alice CEO and co-founder.
The MILAGE Project has built a community of partners, including universities and schools located in Norway, Spain, Turkey and Portugal. This developed network of educators and students will be the first to engage Leap With Alice’s free creation tools; enhancing content and cultivating a more immersive learning experience. The MILAGE LEARN+ platform is building a community of teachers that create content according to their specific needs, which is made available (for free) to all students. The University of Algarve is launching pilot projects with schools in the United States, using Portuguese and Spanish content for the learning of second languages, as well as training teachers in the use of the MILAGE LEARN+ platform to create new content for U.S. curriculum.
“The partnership between Leap With Alice and the MILAGE LEARN+ platform provides an educational ecosystem to include all teachers and all students in an engaging, autonomous and active learning environment to foster 21st-century challenges,” said Mauro Figueiredo, Instituto Superior de Engenharia - University of Algarve.
