Harness is an award-winning education technology company based in the UK. Since our founding in 2014, we have continuously been striving to develop and spread our next-gen, interactive teaching software: Unio, one of the winners of the prestigious Open Education Challenge (OEC).
At Harness, we believe that teachers are at the heart of the classroom and that technology should empower them to provide students with the inspirational learning experiences and one-to-one attention they deserve.
We are convinced that technology destined for the classroom should be developed hand-in-hand with teachers. This is why we always involve them in our development process – from concept creation through to live testing – to ensure we are constantly meeting teachers’ current and future needs.
If you would like to be part of our growing community of teachers helping to shape Unio By Harness, get in touch!
