Clever was born of co-founder Dan Carroll’s frustration as a school tech director in Denver. His plans to use technology to save teachers time and personalize learning were stymied by countless CSV files and forgotten passwords. Dan recalls, “I wanted to be an innovator, but I got stuck being a human API.”
Software has the potential to empower teachers and create new ways to learn. But one thing must happen first. Everyone must be able to log in—quickly and securely.
To solve Dan’s problem, we built a single sign-on portal that now helps 65% of U.S. K–12 schools spend more time learning and less time logging in.
Dan and all of us at Clever believe that technology is a powerful lever that can make education more equitable and engaging. Since the beginning, we’ve seen that when great teachers are supported by great technology, it leads to incredible learning outcomes.
More than 65% of U.S. K–12 schools use Clever, including 95 of the largest 100 districts. That’s 22 million students logging in with Clever monthly! We are proud to work with the education community to bring a lifetime of opportunity within reach of every student.
Kahoot!, the global learning platform, and Clever are joining forces to make learning awesome for educators and learners around the globe. Click here to find out more about their exciting journey so far.
