Mohan commented on I'm not too young!

Dream Job...starting young!
It is very important for kids, parents and teachers to identify, encourage and nurture the dream job of every kid. If the school, community, industries can facilitate taking the kids to the 'dream job facility' or get them to meet and talk to the most influencing personalities or giving them a hands on experience (may not be applicable for all job types though) by giving them a mock experience (I know Kidzania does this...).
I'm sure would reinforce, inspire and motivate the kids towards their dream job.

Loved reading through this idea dear "I'm not too young"
Thank you

Hi Rachel,
Missed out on your other question below:
"Are you envisioning that all learning take place through the app?"
Nope. We cannot replace the current education model completely as we are heavily dependent on the existing education framework that includes structured syllabus and evaluation method.
The App can be an add on for early learning for many underprivileged schooling system with content that can be created by the local community, teachers and parents to educate the children. It can be very localized, very cultural centric and current to the situation..
A lot depends on the story writer's creativity to drive imparting education with fun.

Thanks

Hi Ngozi.
I'm in line with your thoughts on the education model. Though we may not be able to change it completely, yet, I agree that the method of imparting knowledge should change and replace the stereotype books with more lively, interactive and resourceful content.

Your Video Playlist Vibes is a perfect example for alternative source of knowledge like Ted Ed (https://www.youtube.com/user/TEDEducation), Kurzgesagt (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsXVk37bltHxD1rDPwtNM8Q), Khan Academy (https://www.khanacademy.org/) that do provide immense information and knowledge in engaging and creative way.

I would love to know how you plan to implement your idea and how this can scale up to different cultural, social and economical groups of society?

Thanks for sharing your idea.
