Chinese-Israeli ed-tech startup teaches kids to code
By Abigail Klein Leichman for Israel21c
Shanghai-based LeapLearner represents the first global venture built from the ground up by Chinese and Israeli cofounders.
Chinese students rank best in the world on standardized tests but don’t excel in thinking out of the box. Israeli kids aren’t great test-takers but have exceptional innovation and problem-solving skills.
LeapLearner, the first Chinese-Israeli startup, puts those qualities together in a disruptive online and offline platform to teach kids coding along with critical 21st century skills including innovation, self-learning, problem-solving, creativity and adaptability.
