360ed is an EdTech social enterprise that is committed to revamping the education process by leveraging advances of AR and other emerging technologies to create a more fun and interactive learning experience for learners. We believe that the use of gamified applications and learning tools for young learners will greatly impact their learning experience and provide a more accessible and easy-to-understand way of learning. This will not only provide a more enjoyable experience but also a more interactive and engaging one as well.
We believe quality education is essential to the prosperity of peaceful democratic societies. Current
antiquated educational systems cannot prepare the younger generations for the world’s upcoming
challenges. Historically, successful education reforms have shown teachers’ professional development
to be the key lever for improving outcomes. However, experiential learning and one-on-one mentoring
with expert teachers are practically exorbitant luxuries in developing countries like Myanmar, just as
they are in many inner city schools in the USA. Virtual reality is now at the cusp of affordably enabling
any teacher to be “teleported” to the best classrooms anywhere in the world.
Leverage digital technologies to transform the
Education Reform process: Virtual Reality (VR),
Augmented Reality (AR), mobile technologies and
other innovative technologies.
Provide interactive and dynamic learning solutions
which are applicable to Myanmar and beyond.
Narrow the gap of access to quality education
between urban and rural areas.
Educate teachers to teach 21st century skills and
knowledge to their students so that children
anywhere in the world can receive a world class
education from world class teachers.
