Student engagement in education is an urgent crisis. In a recent study, 46% of students said they found school "boring". As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, it's crucial that students are equipped with the skills to both compete in the global knowledge-based economy and collaborate to address today's pressing global issues. Unfortunately, education systems have been slow to respond to new demands and most teachers are ill-equipped to facilitate effective 21st century learning.
Our e-courses were designed for educators around the world to gain the knowledge, experience, and confidence they need to drive future-forward education. The problem is that many passionate and talented teachers who are interested in developing professionally through the e-courses are not able to afford tuition, and we're only able to waive the fees for a limited number of participants. Donations allow us to expand access to those educators unable to participate because of financial constraints.
Our e-courses help educators gain the knowledge and confidence they need to shape a more inclusive, peaceful, and sustainable world. Whether they've paid tuition or been supported through a scholarship, our e-course participants increase their capacity to use technology to engage their students in future-focused education. Our e-course alumni go on to share the experience with their colleagues, both through the casual sharing of ideas and resources and by becoming champions in their schools.
