The pandemic has opened a new door for the adoption of education technologies. In response to lockdowns, teachers were forced to quickly adapt to integrate digital curriculums, learning management systems, communications tools, and interactivity into their work. Merlyn Mind is a voice and remote-controlled digital assistant for educators to manage the digital services found in their classrooms. By offloading the technology aspect of education, teachers are able to focus on the needs of students. This year, the company has piloted its combined hardware and software solution in 50+ classrooms across twenty schools. AlleyWatch caught up with CEO and Cofounder Satya Nitta to learn more about the inspiration to build a digital assistant specifically for education, the company’s strategic plans, and latest funding round led by Learn Capital.
