“Exo- means outside the box and Dexa- means into the game”
Dr. Leah Hanes, Founding Board Member and CEO of Two Bit Circus Foundation
School-related stress is skyrocketing among middle and high school learners
By taking a new perspective on education, we empower students to find and re-define success. Through gamification and interactivity, we keep things light and fun. Research supports this: teens learn better when they are less stressed.
Imagine if every child on planet earth received a state of the art education.
Everything would change. Untapped potential would be a thing of the past. Innovation would abound in every sector and industry. Schools would transform into learner-centered idea incubators. It would benefit everyone. With ExoDexa’s platform and technology, it could even cost less.
What sets successful people apart is problem solving. Successful people figure things out, even when there are no clear instructions. They are creative and open minded. They try new tools and aren’t afraid to experiment.
The future of Education is open minded and creative. Using innovative educational methodologies, we will create this future. We see school as more than a factory that turns students into graduates. We see school as a space for learners to become problem solvers. We see it as a place where the artist is the rule, not the exception. We see it as adaptable – as adaptable as our learners’ incredible minds.
Creating a legacy for the next generation
Nolan Bushnell is a Silicon Valley legend best known for creating Atari. His early companies were the ground floor for innovators like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. He founded Chuck E. Cheese and was recognized by Newsweek as part of the 100 People who changed America. As a father of eight and a grandfather, he’s been passionate about the “education problem” for as long as he’s had kids. He’s refined his ideas for over a decade, and this vision is the foundation for ExoDexa. The original business plan was reworked into the upcoming book, The Future of Education.
