Israel as a Start-up Nation
Although Israel is a small country with a population of only 9 million, it is considered to be “a second Silicon Valley” that produces innovative technologies. Israel ranks #1 in the world for most unicorns per capita, with more than 92 unicorns in June 2022 — approximately 15 times as many as Japan. Many major Japanese companies have invested in or acquired startups in Israel.

MagniLearn’s AI-powered English learning platform
The product has three unique differentiators:

100% Personalization: Real-time exercises are generated by Artificial Intelligence.
The AI creates appropriate questions on-the-fly to address the learner’s weaknesses. Unlike other traditional English learning software, which reuses pre-defined lessons in a pre-defined order, MagniLearn analyzes the learner’s level of English proficiency and generates tailor made questions in real time. Answers are automatically analyzed and stored in a data pool, and the more a student practices, the more personalized the questions become.

Customized Curricula for Schools: Flexible platform integration.
MagniLearn can be adapted to external textbooks and any English learning curriculum, allowing questions to follow any textbook or incorporate the core content each educator wants students to learn. This allows school educators to flexibly adapt the content of their lessons, creating an environment that provides efficient and maximally effective learning.

Precise learning data: Deep technology based on the nano-learning approach.
Students, teachers and administrators are provided with detailed dashboards that show the progress of each student, providing insights into their learning process, their improvement rate, strengths and weaknesses. In addition, the exercises in MagniLearn are free-form, encouraging students to compose their answers and develop critical thinking.

Today, MagniLearn offers schools customized curriculum options and has partnered with leaders in the industry around Japan, Korea, and Israel. In Japan, thousands of students from elementary to high school, across 4 prefectures and 15 cities, are already learning on MagniLearn’s platform.

In recent years, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) has presented the GIGA School project, which aims to improve ICT (information and communication technologies for environmental sustainability), and foster creativity in education, by utilizing tablets and PCs for education.

In September of this year, MagniLearn released “GET,” an English proficiency assessment. The test is based on CEFR level, an international standard for English proficiency, and the difficulty level of the questions adapts in real time according to the test-taker’s answers. The test results also include a CEFR score and correlation to other tests such as TOEIC, TOEFL, and EIKEN scores.
