TalkingPoints: Connecting Immigrant Families to Teachers

Applied ICD

TalkingPoints uses technology to tackle barriers between parents and teachers across language and culture differences by creating two-way human and machine translation.

In addition, the app helps families support their children’s learning through in-app and text message content. At the same time, the app provides coaching, scaffolding, and professional development for teachers.

For details, watch the Ted Talk by Heejae Lim, the founder and CEO, as she explains both why she started the company, and how it works.
