We’re a group of 6 students from different countries, cultures and backgrounds. Spain, Japan, Brazil, Belgium and Russia to be precise. Here, at Hyper Island, we are working on challenges and dreams, and are encouraged to bring our ideas to life.
We saw that phones and other mobile devices are barely used in classrooms. In fact, they are more of a distraction than useful for learning purposes. That made us think and design a solution. We came up with Haibu, a service that creates a second screen experience for classrooms and lectures. It is about what students and lecturers can do with their phones while there is a presentation going on. It creates an environment that encourages them to interact, share and create a better learning experience.
