An edu-system that re-imagines the role of teachers, parents & students & offers experiences for all to discover more about self & others
Tell us about your idea
The current education system is part of a paradigm that sees our world in silos. Education may be happening in schools, but learning happens every day and everywhere, with everyone, including myself. What if all of these experiences are mapped in my own learning journey, facilitated by a system that triggers my curiosity to know more, to discover more every day? What if instead of being told what to do, think or be, to be inspired to explore my mind, thoughts, feeling, and actions? Could we completely reimagine school to be a life learning experience parents, teachers and caregivers offer to children and young people to cultivate their curiosity, creativity, kindness and leadership?
Humanversity is a new education system that offers holistic life experiences and coaching those support children, young people amd adults to discover more about themselves, the world, and who they want to be and what they want to do.
School is a system that entails four major groups that function as communities that support each other and offer their services to the students. So we have the students (young people) at the center, mentors, coaches, and parents that work together with them to provide holistic education and grow themselves through collaboration with them and with each other.
Parents: provide upbringing education. They interact with other parents for support as community but are also supported by the coaches so they grow into their role as a parent that can cultivate child creativity, curiosity and other skills and values that are in the child's interest in their daily and family life.
Coaches: provide coaching and discovery of students and their parents too. They support the students in coaching with life skills, developing mindfulness and self-awareness, cultivating personal mastery so they can make own choices, and "curate" their learning journey.
Mentors: provide expertise and knowledge and skills in certain subjects. They offer online modules that are available with age-appropriate content that creates fascination on the subjects and stimulate the use of the knowledge in their daily lives.
Students can choose when and why they feel to have an exam and understand why they want to obtain certain certifications.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
Born and raised in a post-communist country I have witnessed the crippling effect of an education system that is meant to to produce obedient, passive, and purpose-less people. This is still a reality in many counties across the world and I feel mad for the creative human potential we lose every day. I am on a mission to change that and enable as many of us (Especially young people) to come alive and live a purposeful happy life.
