“The device helps teachers guide their groups. It is comprehensive and addresses real problems with group work such as too many prompts and noise. The tool is motivating for students and teachers. It points to practices and provides reassurance.”
― Sébastien, School teacher
“I liked it because it made us communicate with each other, it forced us to communicate. Because if one [group member] wants to ask [the teacher] for help, he can’t without asking the other [pupils in the group]“
― Marius, 9 y.o.
Project born from academic research
- Researchers in education sciences have ensured the relevance of the contents
- Researchers in HCI ergonomics and UX design have identified users’ needs
- Researchers in IT have offered new forms of interactions
- 5 years spent alongside teachers to understand and gather their needs
- Hundred of hours spent observing how learners work
- An iterative design process to create systems for and with the education actors
- We have worked with the main contributors in the french educational field (MEN, Canopé, Inspé,…)
- We are supported by one of the most prestigious IT institute in France: Inria
- We work with schools, teachers, Headteachers, etc.

Philippe and Alexis have been working together for 5 years on the creation of mixed augmented reality interfaces with educational purposes that allow innovative forms of interactions between physical and digital worlds.
The Co-Idea project is an EdTech startup project supported by the Inria Startup Studio.
It is the result of the e-TAC research consortium supported by the French Ministry of Education and Youth in the framework of the e-FRAN calls for projects, financed by the Programme d’Investissement d’Avenir, operated by the Caisse des dépôts et consignations. Not to mention the dozens of teachers and hundreds of students who have been supported!
