Company Summary

Kinobi delivers a software platform that utilizes the Microsoft Kinect to coach teachers on how to develop core classroom management techniques. Teachers learn through repeated practice while receiving real-time feedback on the fundamental components of classroom management: body posture, physical gestures, tone of voice and word choice. While education is our first target vertical, we believe other verticals exist.
