Vision Education once again makes the shortlist

Vision Education once again makes the shortlist for a major international awards ceremony. Amazing achievements in learning technologies were celebrated at the glittering gala ceremony held at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London, UK on 27 November 2019. At the Learning Technologies Awards, we took second place in the category ‘Best use of mobile learning’. We found ourselves in good company, rubbing shoulders with Mobile Coach, Yap Books, m-Spine and Digital Chefs. Being surrounded by such inspiring business minds was a truly enriching experience for us.

LearnMatch-App supports Aprende.org

Hola LearnMatch amigos!

Our first project in South America, namely Pro Mujer, has already proven that we don’t just have a head for football. But now it’s time for us to go one step further. Vision Education is now  supporting the NGO project APRENDE, together with the Carlos Slim Foundation. And our app LearnMatch plays a huge role!

NGO projects that are of global importance are a matter close to our heart.  With Aprende.org, we have brought on board the most important learning platform in Latin America! In the future, our LearnMatch app will offer linguistic support for this free platform. Aprende.org has been developed for people who are keen to learn new things. Users will be able to access a diverse range of languages free of charge. Thereby they can expand their language skills. All that for a bigger goal: more education for all! A matter truly dear to our heart.

What is the Aprende.org platform?

The Aprende.org platform focuses on areas supported by the Carlos Slim Foundation.  The aim is to offer assistance in the areas of education, employment, culture and health to people with little access to education. The mobile version of Aprende.org is also free for active Telcel and Infinitum users. Some of the courses are developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. Their goal is to help users develop specific skills so that they can find better jobs later on.

How is the platform structured?

The platform consists of three main areas: Education and Culture, Capacítate Occupation and Capacítate Health. Under Education and Culture, you will find courses in primary and secondary education, higher education and digital media. Capacítate Occupation offers training and further education in finance, construction, health care, technology and tourism. Capacítate Health puts together proposals for health care in the workplace or at school, among other things.

We are excited to see how users in Latin America respond to our LearnMatch app, and look forward to working with the Carlos Slim Foundation and Aprende.org.
