Posted by Lidia from University of LuxembourgResponsive · Innovative Products and Technologies · Luxembourg

Summary of the technology

MaGrid is an innovative early math tablet-based training tool designed to foster pre-schoolers math precursor skills. To provide each child with a sound foundation in basic mathematical abilities, effective instruction over the pre-school years is necessary. MaGrid is language-neutral and thus makes early mathematical instruction accessible to all children, regardless of their language background or proficiency. By this means it is not only suitable for a highly multilingual school setting with a heterogeneous student population, but it can be used on a global level.
