Ed-tech startup enhances collaboration experience for students in Detroit

WhooSaid successfully launches beta test in Detroit charter school.
DETROIT - Dec. 10, 2016 - PRLog -- Group projects have historically presented unique problems for teachers and students - namely inefficiencies with grading, workload distribution, and transparent communication. Detroit-based startup, WhooSaid LLC, has created an innovative solution to this problem specifically honing in on tracking accountability between group members to ensure the workload distribution is shared equally. Thursday, December 8, 2016, marked the launch of the first inital pilot of the online platform at Cornerstone Health & Technology high school based on Detroit's west side where the startup was able to garner over 120+ student users who will be experiencing collaboration of the future firsthand.

This implementation comes at a turning point in Detroit Public School history as the district has been one of the lowest performing in the United States since 2010 and has recently made local/national headlines for a shameful $2.7 million kickback scheme involving 13 principals and longtime fraudulent DPS vendor, Norman Shy. The adoption of WhooSaid technologies into DPS classrooms marks a step in a postive direction for the school system - proving a belief in moving past the disgraceful headlines of recent years and a philosophy of investing in the future's of Detroit Public School students.

More information is expected to be released during the 2016-17 school year as the startup matures and expands throughout the Detroit and Southeastern Michigan region.
