A 200 year gap in education

Education running a 19th century model 

Sir Ken Robinson argues that we have a system of education that is modeled on the interests of industrialism and in the image of it. “Schools are still pretty much organised on factory lines; ringing bells, separate facilities, specialised into separate subjects. We still educate children by batches; we put them through the system by age group – why do we do that?
It was driven by an economic imperative of the time but running right through it was an intellectual model of the mind, which was essentially the enlightenment view of intelligence; that real intelligence consists in this capacity for a certain type of deductive reasoning and a knowledge of the classics originally, what we come to think of as academic ability.
And this is deep in the gene pool of public education; there are only two types of people – academic and non-academic; smart people and non smart people. And the consequence of that is that many brilliant people think they’re not because they’ve been judged against this particular view of the mind.”

Students need 21st century skills

Hank Nourse, Director of Digital Content Strategy and Instructional Design at The New York Academy of Sciences, notes that in schools around the world, the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics, collectively known as STE(A)M, are taking on new importance.
That is because today’s jobs increasingly require knowledge in these areas, along with competence in what are commonly referred to as 21st-century, non-cognitive, or social-emotional skills—capacities such as creativity, communication, collaboration, and persistence.
To hold information-age jobs, students need to think deeply about issues, solve problems creatively, work in teams, communicate clearly in different medias, learn ever-changing technologies, and deal with a flood of information.

infecting 3 billion students worldwide

According to the world demographics profile 2016 by IndexMundi, 41,6% percent of the current world population is under the age of 24. This means that 2,9 billion youngsters are or should be targeted by the education system.
The problem is the education system is trying to meet the future by doing what they did in the past. And on the way they’re alienating millions of kids who don’t see any purpose in going to school.

A Global Challenge Requires A Global Action

 A world of expanding educational opportunity is a more prosperous, peaceful, and sustainable world
where more children have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams.

Because education is a shared global value, we can improve it
by working together despite our differences and across country lines.

MyMachine has the potential to impact millions of people, and our strategy focuses on growing the model to all continents.
The great thing about MyMachine is that it is adaptable to any situation, to any kind of context.
There is literally no country or region where MyMachine could not work. The reason being that it is addressing human creativity, based upon the dreams of innocent children and bringing back joy and wonder to learning.
