Foreword Development is a technology studio that designs clever products in the areas of education and communication.
Foreword, our principal project, is a unified space for out-of-classroom communications. It imparts real-time information adapted to the particular relationship a school has to each of its members and reduces the time staff spend conveying predictable information so that they can focus exclusively on pedagogy. Foreword deferentially supplements public discourse within schools by making accessible its informational prerequisites; we remind a student of their philosophy club meeting so they can go to the right room at the right time, stow their device and let the important work begin.
Unlike most technology presently used in schools, Foreword is designed in close collaboration with students and faculty. As we launch, we’re researching how and why schools use the software currently at their disposition.
