SummaryJo Ritzen, former Minister of Education of the Netherlands and co-founder of Revisely, will visit the Majorana school in Brindisi, Italy, to explore innovations in education on Friday the 10th of April.
The former minister will check out the digital and other innovations at the Majorana school and see how the cooperation proceeds between Dutch startup Revisely and the school, who recently started using Revisely's digital correction application.
Revisely is currently investigating to open an office in Puglia to collaborate with more schools in Italy on digital correction innovations.
Digital correction application
Revisely's app makes it easy for teachers to give good feedback to students. This is especially useful to correct essays more effectively, giving teachers an online tool for text correction in Dutch, English and Spanish (Italian is on the roadmap). Thanks to structured comments, students get better feedback and management benefits from benchmarking tools.
All documents are kept digitally, making it impossible to misplace your text. Also, plagiarism check has been integrated to encourage students' creativity.
Revisely works hand in hand with teachers and students of the 2 largest school groups in the Netherlands, OMO and Carmel.
In June of 2014 Revisely won access to incubator UtrechtInc, including € 68k growth capital. In December of 2014 Revisely won € 100k financing by European accelerator Impact.
