Who are we?
We are Zzish. We share a passion for building a world in which every teacher uses apps in the classroom to transform learning for students everywhere. Our goal is to bridge the gap between technology and the classroom.
Founded by Charles Wiles, Google’s first ever tech hire outside the US, our talented, enthusiastic team are building and scaling a deep technology platform for education apps. We call our dashboards a ‘virtual teaching assistant’, letting the teacher know exactly who needs help, and what they need help with.

Soon, our technology will use AI to make sophisticated recommendations on which content and which apps work best to help students learn.
