GEMS Education, a global education management company and the world’s largest private K-12 education provider, has launched Tmrw, a new and scalable Learning Operating System (LearnOS) for global education to help bring quality education within the reach of every child.
Its interoperable All-in-One Integrated Platform is built to be accessible and affordable for government-funded schools operating in both the developed and developing world settings, according to a press statement. Tmrw seeks to reach all students irrespective of their background or their ability to pay. It is designed to cater to the needs of every curriculum, context and mode of learning, whether brick and mortar, virtual or blended.
Tmrw’s vision over time is to underpin learning, teaching, and the operational needs of K12 education, higher education, and life-long learning. Its platform includes a comprehensive suite of modules that can be introduced as a full ecosystem or as bolt-ons that are interoperable with technologies from other providers, offering schools the efficiency gains that integration can bring.
The platform includes modules to manage and oversee the curriculum, assessment, and track student progress. It has non-academic functionalities such as sports management, counseling, and well-being. It allows schools to manage parent and student relations and includes custom-built health and child safety guarding features. It also includes back-office operations such as revenue management, HR, payroll, finance, and procurement.
Tmrw offers comprehensive educational services such as:
Tmrw Academy – Focused on professional development including teacher training
Education Command Center – Serving policymakers with real-time decision-making capabilities at a national level
Tech-In-A-Box – Comprehensive technology backbone covering the school ecosystem end to end.
Tmrw Advisory Services for educational institutions on curriculum design, digital transformation, school improvement, and nationwide educational strategies.
Sunny Varkey, Chairman & Founder of Tmrw and GEMS Education, said:
"Quality education is the great equaliser. It bridges the gap between the rich and the poor and gives us the greatest opportunity to improve the state of our world. We have built this platform to be accessible and affordable for Government-funded schools throughout the world to help improve learning outcomes wherever we can. We seek to reach all students irrespective of their background or their ability to pay. Ultimately, our vision is to give every child their birthright of a great education and provide hope for a better future."
Krishnan Gopi, Tmrw CEO and GEMS Education Group Chief Disruption Officer said,
"Education is transforming at pace, moving away from the conventional patterns of teaching and learning that have dominated the sector. There is an undeniable, growing awareness among educators and families that education must evolve to meet tomorrow’s reality. Designed by educators for educators, Tmrw will help students learn better, teachers teach better, parents become more engaged, and schools become more efficient."
Spun out from GEMS Education, Tmrw has been incorporated as the independent technology entity of GEMS and so will draw on the experience of the largest private K-12 education provider in the world. GEMS Education, since it was founded 62 years ago, has provided quality and values-driven education throughout the world. Today, GEMS is the only private-sector education operator with an all-inclusive platform for teachers, pupils, and parents.
