Bakpax uses AI to read handwriting and grade assignments. We save teachers the time and trouble of grading, and give students instant feedback to increase their engagement. We can convert teachers’ handwritten content to formatted digital text that can be remixed and shared with other teachers. At Bakpax, we believe that what education actually needs is “un-tech.” Giving computers and tablets to every primary and secondary student is too expensive, even in the U.S. But students the world over already have access to paper and phones. Paper, whether loose sheet or books, is still the fundamental technology platform of education. It stands to reason that learning technology must be based on tech that the entire world already has or can easily get. Which pretty much means just paper and phones.
