Carolyn Mee is an edtech entrepreneur who wants to change the way children get screened for hearing loss.
She has a background in media, and a strong desire to improve learning outcomes for children.
She’s developed an app called Sound Scouts. It has been developed in collaboration with National Acoustic Laboratories, a research division of Australian Hearing.
The app is a gamified test that invites children to take part in a story. Along the way, their hearing is tested.
Carolyn’s work with Sound Scouts has the potential to radically improve detection rates of hearing loss. This will help to provide intervention more quickly and lead to better learning.
It’s a serious undertaking, backed by scientific research and ongoing development.
Listen to Carloyn share her journey with Sound Scouts in this episode of the Learning Capacity podcast.
