Facebook Gets Involved In Free Educational Software for Schools
Facebook has entered the debate over how to educate children in a best way by building educational software.
Facebook had announced its partnership with the network of charter schools to build education software which will be free to public schools.
“We hired a team to work with students and teachers to improve this software”, said Chris Cox, Facebook’s Chief Product Officer.
Summit Public Schools, running charter schools in Washington and California provide this software to students allowing them to study at their own pace.
Partnership with Summit is "an example of how engineers and educators can team up to find more efficiency’, said Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook.
Facebook account is not needed to use this software and also has privacy controls to secure students data, Said Cox.
