The idea behind DoodleLearning is simple: to build every child’s confidence in maths and English

Our story

 

Back in 2011, we realised the potential in using technology to teach. After watching their children playing on their tablets, Tom and Nicola, two maths teachers, decided to create an app that would combine different learning styles, work alongside class-taught lessons and encourage children to learn in a fun and personal way.

Looking back, we’ve come a long way from this initial eureka moment. We’ve released four Doodle programmes covering maths and English content that have been used by over one million children. We’re also used in hundreds of schools, in the UK and internationally — and this number continues to grow!

Our core beliefs

We’re passionate about developing innovative ways of helping children to learn.

Four core beliefs underpin the development of our programmes:

1. Children learn best when work is personalised to their needs

2. Children learn best through doing, experimenting and trying things for themselves

3. Children often forget what they’ve learned, unless they’re regularly reminded

4. Children don’t always make the best choices when it comes to their learning

Our vision

All of us at DoodleLearning are passionate about using our educational expertise to provide affordable learning solutions for parents and schools.
 
Powered by our Proxima™ algorithm, our programmes provide personalised learning experiences that continually adapt to each child’s strengths and weaknesses.
 
By using this technology, we strive to create engaging content that seamlessly fits into the home and classroom. Most importantly, we aim to transform learning into an engaging educational adventure that children will want to enjoy time and again.
 
We also strive to build a system that supports, rather than replaces, teaching. Our vision is of children learning through inspiring whole-class teaching, and of teachers having the tools and technology to ensure that every child is filling their personal learning gaps.

Corporate and social responsibility

Helping children around the world

We’re proud to be used in schools all around the world, including the USA, Australia, Mexico and Dubai.

As just one example, in 2018 we supplied 1,200 Kindle Fires with DoodleMaths pre-installed to schools in Nigeria.

Reducing our environmental impact

Our environmental impact is always at the forefront of our mind. To save on paper, our Doodle programmes, resources and handbooks are all based online. We also make sure that our merchandise and office equipment is sourced as locally and ethically as possible – our pencils are made from 100% recycled CDs, and our milk, fruit and cereals come from a Bath-based zero-waste shop! Recently, we set a challenge to our DoodleCoaching students: by earning more stars, we planted more trees. We are also working towards B-Corp certification to demonstrate our commitment to making a real difference in the world.

Working with our local community

We’re passionate about working with our community to encourage positive change and promote the tech industry. Earlier this year, we committed to a two-year partnership with a Bath-based charity, Mentoring Plus, to help raise vital funds to support young people experiencing challenging situations. We’ve also worked with the Bath Digital Festival to engage children with the world of tech, and ensure we take part in local initiatives to support the community.
