Firefly & EducationApps
Firefly, software developed by Old Paulines, was picked out this week by The Guardian in a review of innovations in educational ICT.
A content management system developed by two 15-year-old schoolboys in 2000 has become a commercial success. Firefly.NET streamlines the process of building and developing websites, intranets and learning platforms for schools. Joe Mathewson and Simon Hay created the system when they were pupils at St Paul’s school in London. They are now partners in Firefly Solutions and have sold their product to more than 30 independent schools, including St Paul’s and Wellington College. “We want to grow and expand into the state sector,” Mathewson says.
Firefly powers our intranet and this website.
We’re also proud to see EducationApps, the company founded by George Burgess (2005-2010), mentioned in another Guardian piece, Smartphones: Education on the move, for its work developing iOS and Android education apps.
