On average, American adults use their mobile phones over 4 hours a day for entertainment, to connect with friends and colleagues, to shop, and for just about everything else. Learning on smartphones is also becoming an integral part of our lives. And yet recent research suggests that the average adult professional has just 20 minutes a week to devote to his or her learning and development - the same learning and development that so many individuals nowadays cite as a major source of motivation, engagement and fulfilment in their lives.
Teach me Up Tomy! from Teach on Mars aims to exploit this largely untapped potential and provide users with a powerful means to take control of their own learning on a daily basis, using nothing more than their smartphone. That learning will become instantly available and easily accessible at any time, meaning free moments and even unforeseen delays become learning opportunities.
The mobile learning world market expands at an extremely fast pace every year. It was 5.3 billion dollars in 2016 and is expected to be 12.2 billions in 2017. According to estimations, these figures should continue to increase in 2018, to triple or quadruple, and reach not less than 53 billion dollars. Today, there is one smartphone for each 4.5 person in the world. On this total, 92% of people under 30 use one of these devices.
You're stuck in traffic or on your commute. What if you could use that down-time to learn anything, on-the-go using just your smartphone? Enjoy a 100% context-driven learning experience. Fully tailored to where you are, what you're doing and what you need, right now.
Teach me Up Tomy! is a new mobile-optimized learning app developed by Teach on Mars. Thanks to powerful interaction capability and real-time analysis of your environment and activities, it will propose a fully tailored pedagogical experience every time you connect.
High-end speech recognition combined with a sophisticated Artificial Intelligence engine means all you have to do to open up a world of learning activities is talk. Teach me Up Tomy! does the rest, analysing your training request, and cross-referencing it with data it gathers on your location and schedule. It then delivers suggestions for context-relevant learning activities containing information that is valuable, timely and applicable to what you are doing right there and then.
From the learner's point of view, Teach me Up Tomy! is way more than just a next-generation training platform. It's a learning companion, putting you in control of your own development. And it's a smart performance assistant, guiding you through the key moments of your day. Building your skill-base. Boosting your impact. Helping you wring maximum value out of every spare moment you have in your busy, unpredictable life.
