On SLATE

The SLATE Logo:

“Slates” and tablets have served as educational tools for over 5 thousand years, back to the time of the Sumerians.
Ancient stone tablets often had irregular shapes as their edges became broken over time. 

 Throughout history, technological advancements have changed the conditions for human learning. 
In the SLATE logo, the tablet shape combines with a suggestion of an old pen or engraving tool.
It thus reflects the relationship between technology and learning extending from ancient time with slates to modern tablets and beyond.
