the app will close the gap between education and humor

Jesse Williams is fusing his enthusiasm for technology and teaching. The former Grey’s Anatomy actor has collaborated with VISIBILITY, a business he co-founded, to develop a new trivia app called Homeschooled. The app will include quizzes that highlight American variety in fields including pop culture, history, music, cinema, fine art, and science. Growing Up Black, Who Created This, Kicks, Divas, Auto Culture, Sci-Fi, and Street Fashion are just a few of the categories of trivia that make it even better and suitable for all ages.

The official statement adds that the he will serve as the Dean of Culture for Homeschool and welcome several distinguished guest lecturers. According to Williams, the app will close the gap between education and humor.

“We can learn and laugh at the same time and do so without excluding huge swaths of the population just because that’s how it’s always been,” Williams said. “Traditional school is typically our central source of understanding when it comes to societal contributions in the realms of history, science, arts & culture, etc., but the chasm between that outdated mechanic and the realities of cultural impact in our daily lives is staggering.”


There are so many digital firms that are contributing in providing children with fresh, enjoyable, and engaging methods to study. Black Enterprise featured Healthy Hip-Hop, the QQQ Legacy Classic Startup Pitch Competition winner from Invesco. With the use of cutting-edge technology and accessible music, the app empowers and teaches kids. The company’s founder Roy Scott employs livestream performances and YouTube videos with more than 5,000 followers to engage children in interactive learning.

Homeschooled is hoping to do the same while helping kids and other “gain deeper knowledge of self and society.” Co-founder Glenn Kaino says it’s all about “celebrating diverse and complicated identities.” “And we can have fun in the process,” Kaino said. “Everyone is welcome to dive in, celebrate and challenge their friends, families, and that random person who thinks they know more than you.”
