Who we are

Kitkit School was created by a special project team from Enuma that has decades of collective experience in education, gaming, engineering, design, and international development.

About Enumaand Kitkit School

Enuma is a leader in digital early-learning solutions. The company’s applications are designed to help all children develop early literacy and numeracy. Cofounded in 2012 by husband-and-wife game developers with the mission of empowering children with special needs to become independent learners, Enuma released its award-winning flagship product, Todo Math, in 2014. Todo Math employs a beautiful user experience and strong accessibility functions to help struggling learners thrive, and the app continues to be one of the most successful math apps in the Apple App Store, with over 3 million downloads worldwide.

The Enuma team has now created Kitkit School, a comprehensive early learning solution to address the 250 million children around the world who cannot read or write. Made by the same team of dedicated professionals, Kitkit School is the tangible result of Enuma’s core commitment to deliver world-class learning solutions to every child in need. The team has worked tirelessly, collaborating closely with math educators, learning specialists, and classroom teachers. We have also continued to build our engineering and business team. We view these as our core strengths:

A Truly User-Centered Design

Team Kitkit School believes that independence and engagement are the most important factors in creating successful learning outcomes for children. By incorporating high-quality game design standards and hands-on research in early childhood education, neuroscience and learning theory, Kitkit School has been engineered to drive children to learn independently without the need for adult supervision or guidance.

Technical Excellence

In addition to its high-quality user design, the team has employed a scalable architecture and a stable server system founded on game industry standards to allow Kitkit School to scale to millions of users.

Driven by Data

In developing applications, our team employs leading research in neuroscience and special education, as well as international best-practices in learning and pedagogy. The team also securely collects, processes and synthesizes large amounts of non-private user-data from our own applications, which we use to improve learning outcomes and usability. We took the same research-based approach in creating Kitkit School, including running field tests in both Kenya and Tanzania for the purpose of studying the application’s usability and efficacy.

Commitment to Supporting Marginalized Children

Enuma's primary focus has been children with special needs or learning differences, children who lack resources, and children without access to quality education systems. The success of our commercially available apps — including Todo Math, Kid in Story Book Maker and Visual Schedule for Children with Autism — has proven our dedication to creating the best possible product to serve all children.

Team Kitkit School entered the Global Learning XPRIZE competition due to our unwavering belief that the children who can benefit the most from technology-based education tools are the children for whom learning doesn’t come easily due to circumstances beyond their control. Our team is made up of passionate and dedicated game designers, educators, researchers, developers and business professionals who want to realize the dream of empowering millions of children worldwide to learn independently.

Partnerships

This project has been made possible thanks to the support of the Korea International Cooperation Agency, as well as other fantastic partners in East Africa.
