Connect, Transform, Achieve!

Platforms for Boosting Transformative Competencies

We expect students to improve and enhance their transformative competencies, and we are seeking new ways that technology can help teachers and schools to advance the students’ abilities in these areas, such as:

Connecting – Communicating and collaborating with people, embracing diversity, building relationships.

Transforming – Initiating and implementing change, making decisions, encouraging critical thinking and learning agility.

Achieving – Delivering results, overcoming obstacles, adjusting to change and boosting resilience.

We are looking for startups that creatively blend technology  and pedagogy  to provide middle school students  (ages 12-15) with challenging and learning environments that provide experiential learning, doing and reflecting - in ways that alleviate their competencies. Our objective is to enable and motivate students to improve their competencies (e.g. connecting / transforming / achieving), and to provide them (and their teachers) with dynamic gateways that trigger and expand their acquisition experiences and their capacities.
