YANGON -- After studying at Harvard University and learning the art of starting a business in Silicon Valley, Hla Hla Win took her experience home to Myanmar, founding a company that uses augmented reality to improve education in some of the world's least-developed places.

360ed was established in 2016 and first brought products to market last year. It aims to transform pedagogy in the developing world via technology. Pointing a smartphone at a horse on one of its flashcards, for example, lets the student view and manipulate a 3D horse on-screen.
