Mission & Values
Teachers and children are not happy during school hours. Public education has been largely ignored by both the children and their parents. These are because they believe they do not obtain useful knowledge effectively through the current public
education system. It only focuses on how to deliver knowledge to children and pays no attention to teach how to apply knowledge in the community. Thus, current public education provokes people to lose confidence in the education system without any
alternatives for the future.
We noticed about this issue. Since our society is rapidly moving ahead and undergoing a drastic change, our education system should be changed to adapt its change. In order to do so, we considered how to support children who continuously face new challenges in society. Our first mission was design an education model, called “The World’s Biggest Class Project” that working on regardless of times and circumstances. We believe that the fundamental method of class delivery should first be questioned and a student-centered education approach is a good method that can be applied to public education.
Therefore, we tried to change class as facilitating acquired knowledge in brief time with various worksheets. After we changed the class, we observed various changes that children tried to have intimate relations and understand each other, and work together in class. Even, children showed a passion and inspirational attitude about learning and developed collaboration and communication skills.
Our goal is to empower children to develop skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking through The World’s Biggest Class project. In addition, to become a model in education from our project to be useful for future generation and any change in the world.
Our project was created by applying principles of “21st education Framework” by P21, “SOLE” by Sugata Mitra which involves “Hole in the Wall” experiment. Also, it was affected by educational philosophies such as Ashoka’s “changemaker” and Standford D-School’s “design thinking”. With those ideas, we established our educational frameworks.
We defined 5 competencies for the 21st century; creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and cognitive empathy. The skills would be required for The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the world in the future. Our project is based on our educational frameworks to develop and facilitate those skills. It would benefit to not only children, but communities to prepare for many new challenges in the world.
