Edtech startup Peergrade picks up backing from a supergroup of Nordic angelsPeergrade, a startup out of Denmark that enables students to grade each other's work, has raised a modest $300,000 in seed funding. However, more newsworthy are its new backers. They comprise UK edtech accelerator Emerge Education, and Nordic Makers - which might be best described as a supergroup of Nordic angels.
Peergrade lets students grade each other's assignmentsFor as long as I can remember, technology has been seen as a panacea that will finally make education scalable beyond the one to few model employed in the classroom. As a result there seems to be an endless conveyor belt of edtech startups finding new (and sometimes very old) ways to utilise the internet's networking capability to improve learning.
