Sokikom has raised $2 million led by Zynga co-founder Steve Schoettler. The educational gaming start-up received half of the money from the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences.
"Sokikom's effectiveness is embedded into its games at every stage of their development," says the company. "Initially funded through grants by the U.S. Department of Education, Sokikom has designed the games using the principles of guided, discovery-based, social, and situated learning. Our games contain learning objectives aligned with the latest National Council of Teachers of Mathematics curriculum focal points and the Common Core State Standards."
