Every episode we ask our guest to name drop someone doing cool things in the tech community. Eric gives a shout out to Nathan Strenge, Senior Learning Designer at Fielding International.
Students, parents, and teachers increasingly appreciate that the purpose of school is so much bigger than the in-class experience. And meanwhile, software vendors, administrators, even parents have delegated too much responsibility for students’ learning experiences to systems and tools that are alienating learners. Previous 1-to-1 technology initiatives focused on putting a machine in every student’s hands. Fanschool wants to put human beings in front of each other to become the first scalable 1-on-1 teaching-learning ecosystem, where students own their learning and create positive habits of mind.
