CatchOn’s mission is to support teaching and learning through the smarter use of data and technology. By capturing and sharing insights on which technologies are truly effective for schools, learning outcomes can be improved at a lower cost, thereby providing a gateway to a higher quality education for more students.

The company was founded in 2016 by Jena Draper, who, as a recent graduate, recognized that school districts often face challenges when trying to apply generic, “one-size-fits-all” software applications to their specific teaching and learning needs. CatchOn was designed to help districts meet and adapt to changing needs and trends as they happen, through the use of real-time data and cutting-edge technology.

The company launched its product at the SXSWedu conference in March 2017 and is an administrative tool that collects real-time data on every device type and all app, software and website activity. The tool provides granular evidence on what’s happening digitally in classrooms, enabling district leaders to make data-rich decisions about app use, implementation fidelity, cost and ROI.
