Groundbreaking educational app pioneers launch new products and look toward the future
AUSTIN, Texas, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — DISCO Learning Media, a full service creative agency and educational consulting firm prepares to celebrate their first year in operation. Over the past year, the company has developed new strategies for deploying educational apps after its founders released the world’s first course app, forged strong industry partnerships, and released new products aimed at improving learning through high quality design.
“We believe that design-first education is imperative for today’s learners, of any age. Quite simply, good design is good communication,” says DISCO President and Co-Founder Juan Garcia. “We’re proud of our work to date. We’ve been fortunate to work with a great team of artists, teachers, partners, and clients in our first year – and we look forward to another great year of helping improve teaching and learning through innovative, design-centered products.”
