Share a short description about your company:
Professional software development programme for refugees.
What are the key trends you believe have the power to transform the way we learn?
We are big believers in the power of a hybrid learning that uses the best of online material, tutorials and interactions together with face-to-face mentorship and guided learning.
The theme of EdTechXEurope 2018 is ‘Eternally Learning’. What does eternal learning mean to you?
It means to ignore age and stage in life and define learning as a continuous source for inspiration and growth. It is the believe that we are never to old to be learners and that it is the only way to achieve ongoing fulfillment in our lives.
What should the rest of the world learn about EdTech in your country?
It should know that there are many talented companies working very hard to improve the methodologies and practices in education thanks to the use of technology, but that we need to look beyond 'connecting' our kids with a tablet to fulfill the promise of technology as a way to improve education.
Why is it important for all players in the EdTech ecosystem to continuously connect, network and learn from each other?
Because otherwise we will continue trying to recreate what other have already achieved and require much more time to get there. Similar as we expect all of us to be continuously learning, we have to do the same within our ecosystem and spend more time talking to each other.
How does your current role allow you to make a difference to education and learning space?
CodeYourFuture offers professional training to refugees, one of the most diverse groups that an education provider can dream of. We work with students from all over the world and by working with them we are creating a unique blend of learning practices in software that expand traditional education standards. We are making technology education approachable, fun and engaging, even for the most abstract concepts.
Who would you like to meet at the event?
When you think about joining London EdTech Week and EdTechXEurope Summit this year, what are you looking forward to?
I am looking forward to connecting with many organisation that are working very hard to make this a better world thanks to the power of education and utilising the best out of technology.
