Tell us about your idea

The idea is to encourage giving and receiving constructive feedback between students, teachers and parents. The students could also include Alumni. For example, for university grad, they are looking for jobs, a feedback platform on their resume, career path or portfolio review could be very useful. The platform could take the form of digital. There are school who have "interview a profession program." why not open it up to global? people around the world could meet each other digitally and get inspired. 

The ability to receive feedback is an important skill to have, starting early, the things people wish they could learn at school, they could start a mini course on how to give and receive feedback, a playful to start with, so it's less pressure and stress. 

Feedback to teachers could also be what students really want to learn, a 15 or 20 minutes meeting 1 on 1 to discuss the motivation behind the curiosity and personalize a course based on student needs. 

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

Taking a course or doing a project without knowing the why behind it, just for the sake of earning a degree or going to college. Choosing a major without knowing what you want to do after is not efficient way of using one's time. Motivation behind it will help students to learn and learn outside of the classroom. Learning is important in all stages of life, learning how to learn and the skills in looking inside yourself are more important than rushing through high school or university.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
