During the 5th edition of Bett Latin America Summit and Expo, held in Mexico City between October 18-19th, PleIQ received the award as the Best Educational Innovation of 2017, for its contribution in placing the technologies of Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence at the service of Early Childhood Education in the continent.
The Bett Latin America awards, which are awarded by an international jury of experts in educational technology from the public and private sector, celebrate and reward the effort, innovation and creativity that can be found throughout the educational field, and have been delivered consecutively during the last 5 years in the region, and for more than 30 years in London, United Kingdom.
At the award ceremony, Antonio Da Rocha, co-founder and Educational Director of PleIQ, was commissioned to receive this important recognition, which was attended by hundreds of leaders and educators from across the region to discuss the latest trends, challenges and advances in technology in education around the world.
Professor Elisa Guerra, from the Valle de Filadelfia School (Mexico), was also awarded in the category of Disruptive Professor, as well as Elizabeth Galdo Marín from Fundación Telefónica (Peru), in the category of Educational Leadership, for her contribution to the Classroom Project Mobile.
Receiving is an award from Bett Latin America, which fills us with great joy, and commits us to continue working hard to help transform the initial education of millions of children in our region, granting them greater opportunities for their development through technology and games.
