Our mission

… is to translate and adapt the world’s best free educational resources and to support students, teachers, families, and all those involved in education in achieving educational success.

Our vision

… is to modernize every educational environment and learning approaches (in Bulgaria), by applying technologies in a valuable way and developing the students’ curiosity and potential.

We believe that:

  • anyone can learn anything;
  • every student in the 21st century should have access to free online educational resources and be digitally involved and literate;
  • for a school to be successful, it should implement sensible technologies and rely largely on the human factor in the classroom;
  • the school can do much more when it is supported by business and the civil sector to unleash its potential;
  • the role of technology in the classroom is to make the learning process more efficient and meaningful, engaging and easy;
  • the successful teacher inspires students to learn, helps them progress at their own pace, anywhere and anytime, including with their personal device;
  • education can benefit significantly from high-quality and established digital platforms, which provide tools for teachers and feedback for children and complement well the activities in the classroom;
  • the best is yet to come and we are working with inspiration and love for the freedom of learning, together with anyone who wishes to support our mission.
