OUR MISSION IS TO INSPIRE MEANINGFUL DISCUSSIONS IN CLASSROOMS AROUND THE WORLD.

PRODUCT PHILOSOPHY

Great technology empowers teachers to create rich educational experiences that engage and inspire their students. It also gives teachers the information they need to evaluate individual student progress and provide meaningful feedback in an efficient manner.

This is the kind of technology that we seek to build.

DISCUSSION PHILOSOPHY

  1. We treat others with dignity and respect
  2. We are open to exploring new ideas
  3. It’s okay for us to disagree with each other
  4. It’s okay for us to change our minds
  5. We listen to understand, not only to respond
  6. We have the courage to ask difficult questions
  7. We consider all ideas equally

WHY IS DISCUSSION IMPORTANT TO US?

BOBBY MCDONALD

TEAM LEAD

“A progressive society depends on the willingness of its citizens to have honest, informed and respectful dialogue. It is our responsibility to actively teach this skill to young people if we want the them to grow into thoughtful and curious leaders.”

FAISAL AL-TAMEEMI

SENIOR TECHNOLOGIST

“Our mastery of how we would like to share what’s inside of our minds in a way that can be interpreted and felt by someone else’s thoughts has enabled us to build upon each other’s work rather than operate within the constraints of only one mind.”

BEN CHU

FRONT-END LEAD

“The need to feel heard may invite some to participate in heated debate, but without teaching foundational skills in holding respectful, welcoming, and thought-provoking discussion, a heated debate will likely devolve into an agenda controlled by the loudest.”

JOAO COELHO

BACK-END LEAD

“Discussions are important to me because they demand that I clearly think through my own argument, and articulate it in a concise and convincing manner. There is no better way to test my assumptions than trying to convey them to someone else.”
