Embracing the strength of students
A few years ago, a U.S. Department of Labor report stated that 65 percent of today’s students will be employed in jobs that don’t yet exist. Rapidly advancing technology is changing how people work, the skills they need to land and keep a job, and creating massive gaps between those who are digitally literate and those who are not.
The same is true for education.
Mentorina believe that the purpose of education is to empower students to create a better life. With that in mind, there’s a great deal of indirect learning that can come out of a positive educational experience. This post from Edutopia does an excellent job of outlining what some of those are. We’re especially supportive of point number 4 – helping students learn through their strengths.
Tell us, what do you think matters most in preparing today’s students for the challenges of tomorrow?
About Mohamed Saeed
Mohamed’s passion for improving students' lives is what motivates him to grow a community that’s equally passionate about making it better. Growing up in a country with a 63% literacy rate, he knows what the lack of basic tools means - even more so in a fast-paced, digital world.
He’s proudest of having built a center for capacity development for 1000+ orphans and re-structuring its management so that the orphanage is well positioned to make its mission come to life. With Mentorina, Mohamed plans and implements marketing strategies, digging deep to understand what matters most to key stakeholders and refining the brand’s message to continually elevate Mentorina's purpose.
