The year ends and starts well for Learn&Go and its Kaligo application.


Indeed, in November 2019, Learn&Go, with its Kaligo application, won first place in the sixth edition of the Global EdTech Start-up Awards France (GESA France).
From now on, as a winning company, Learn&Go will represent France at the global edition of GESA [1].

And on January 23, 2020, Kaligo took second place on the podium of the Global Edtech Start-up Awards (GESAwards) at the prestigious Bett Awards[2], held at Bett Show in Londres.

A true pedagogical innovation, Kaligo application is the result of several years of research with IRISA on artificial intelligence for handwriting analyses

Kaligo is the first digital writing notebook dedicated to learning to write on a tablet with a pen, for children aged 3 to 8 years old.
Kaligo allows the learning of the graphomotor gesture and writing thanks to customizable exercises - an automatic analysis by algorithm of the student's productions, and offers greater autonomy and personalization in learning to write.

Kaligo meets a true universal need and is currently being replicated, in addition to France, in the United Kingdom and in the Persian Gulf countries.
