Education Shed, a leading educational content provider, recently announced plans to expand its business into the U.S. educational market by opening a U.S. office in Wellington.
“The decision to expand into the U.S. educational market was a logical next step in our overall growth strategy,” CEO Dr. Martin Saunders said. “We’re really excited to bring our products to American schools and homes, and to have a real impact on children’s learning.”
The creation of the Florida office will allow Education Shed to more effectively serve the needs of U.S.-based client schools and districts, parents and homeschool providers. Robert Laundrie, vice president of U.S. sales and marketing and formerly with VocabularySpellingCity, will be based in the Wellington office.
Education Shed, or EdShed, was co-founded by two former educators, Dr. Martin Saunders along with Rob Smith.
“When Rob and I started EdShed, we wanted to make products that would impact children as well as save time and money for educators,” Saunders said. “From our own teaching experience, we recognized that there was a way we could use technology to achieve that. We started with effective, research-based pedagogy and built game mechanics that were designed to increase student enjoyment for our games and activities.”
Since the launch of EdShed in 2017, the company has had more than 40,000 schools and more than three million children on the platform. Founded in the United Kingdom, EdShed is the umbrella organization for several educational products that incorporate technology into the classroom. Products includes Spelling Shed, MathShed, Literacy Shed and Literacy Shed Plus. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.edshed.com.
