|Komodo Learning Ltd|
|Adaptive learning software for maths fluency through home practice on the iPad. Children start Komodo by taking a diagnostic test; then a UK-qualified maths teacher assigns a personal learning plan. During "little and often" sessions of animated lessons followed by timed practice, children tap and swipe their way from number recognition and counting through multiplication and division on to fractions, decimals, and percentages. Created by a UK husband-and-wife team (he, a former teacher; she, a documentary-maker), Komodo leverages the power of a "little extra practice, and a little extra encouragement." To the latter end, parents and guardians assume the role of "reward shop keepers" who confer Black Belt Komodo status and bronze, silver and gold medals.|
