UPDATED – July 16, 2018, Las Vegas, Nevada – Education Revolution, LLC, a Las-Vegas-based Education Technology company, has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for their Socrates learning engine. Socrates is a learning platform that connects the home and classroom learning experiences and develops individualized learning paths for each child across thousands of educational categories. These learning paths are completely dynamic – meaning that they adjust and adapt as the student answers each question, making it easier as they struggle and more challenging as they succeed, finding the optimal learning style for each student. Socrates also includes a gamification system where students earn and spend tickets and tokens for fun activities, which keeps the child engaged and wanting to “play” more – The more they play, the more they learn.

“The National Science Foundation supports small businesses with the most innovative, cutting-edge ideas that have the potential to become great commercial successes and make huge societal impacts,” said Barry Johnson, Director of the NSF’s Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships. “We hope that this seed funding will spark solutions to some of the most important challenges of our time across all areas of science and technology.”

“Education Revolution is proud to be the recipient of this generous grant,” stated Brian G. Rosenberg, Chief Executive Officer of Education Revolution. “The feedback we have received from the schools and students using Socrates is exciting. With this funding, we will be able to accelerate expanding our educational content and provide new games and rewards to increase student engagement and bring our solution to a larger base of children and schools. As part of our grant funding, we are making the solution available at no charge to a limited number of schools.”

Education Revolution, LLC was founded by Brian G. Rosenberg and Dr. Ralph Thomas. Brian Rosenberg has over twenty years of experience leading technology implementations and change in healthcare organizations. Dr. Thomas taught Mathematics at UNLV, University of Chicago, and Princeton University before becoming an expert in data science in the gaming industry. “We both have worked to improve outcomes in other industries,” states Ralph Thomas, “As parents of young children we wanted to apply our skills to improve educational outcomes for all children regardless of their income levels or school funding.”
