Alma Moya Losada
CoFounder & CEO
Nominated in the Category: Education
With which digital project do you want to apply in this category?
I rarely come across true talents who stand out like Alma. I want to nominate Alma Moya Losada, CoFounder, and CEO at Aequaland, in the education category. I believe in her and what she wants to achieve: the gamification of education to empower children. She is creating a positive ripple effect on education, culture, and society and furthering children's development and progress for all.
At Aequaland, we envision a world where every child is empowered to reach her/his full potential and be whoever they want to be, regardless of their gender, race, country or tribe, religion, class, or sexual orientation. A world where diversity and inclusion are celebrated.
We aim to create a world where children celebrate their uniqueness and become themselves fully through fun and educational story games and activities.
Aequaland is unique because we want to disrupt the storytelling. We want to rewrite the reality we have been told to accept; we want to stand up for what it's right, and hope of changing the world for the better. It will soon launch the first disruptive storytelling gaming app where children are immersed in the blue planet to discover human values and diversity in a fun and engaging way. Aequaland aims to create an infinite number of planets from the orange planet where creativity and innovation bloom to the green planet where sustainability is real.
How does digitization shape your/her career?
Alma has worked in marketing and communication for 8 years, gaining experience in virtual reality, gaming, education, and MedTech.
She has represented OZWE Games (Studio from Facebook) and spoken publicly at conferences, events as a keynote or panelist in the US, Europe, and Russia. She has traveled the world to get insights about the future of the next computing system, from AI, IoT, blockchain, machine learning, robotics, XR, 5G, biometrics, etc. Alma successfully launched 2 multi-million dollar game productions and won several awards.
After all the MedTech, XR, and Gaming knowledge acquired, she is now launching her startup Aequaland. She realized that our education systems were designed in an industrial era for industrial jobs. But the future of work is not straightforward. For this, we need new forms of education.
There's a lot of innovation in the education sector now. As children and teachers head back to school, apps are simplifying children's participation and communication. Then she is developing quality content that, at the same time, it's creative and educational. Nowadays school achievement depends less on-screen time and more on the quality of content.
She supports parents with inclusive education and their need to empower their children to reach their full potential. To accelerate this necessary change, Aequaland is a concrete solution to tackle this complex issue.
Her tech experience had given her endless ideas. The applications of AR and AI in an educational setting are infinite, providing "real-world" enrichment to alternative learning styles and forms of knowledge.
