Coaching i mentoring – ich rola stale rośnie. W ciągu kilku ostatnich lat giganci technologiczni rozpoczęli zmianę charakteru szkolnictwa na wielką skalę, wykorzystując część sposobów, które sprawiły, że ich firmy doskonale funkcjonują w amerykańskiej gospodarce.

 Dzięki filantropii wpływają na przedmioty nauczane przez szkołę, narzędzia klasowe wybierane przez nauczycieli oraz podstawowe podejścia do uczenia się.

Examples:

  1. Marc Benioff, (general director at Salesforce) in public schools in San Francisco, donates 100,000 USD of „grants for innovations” and encourages to behave like start-up funders and less like bureaucrats.
  2. President of Netflix, Reed Hastings, in the State of Maryland in Texas, in Virginia, etc., promotes mathematics teaching program, in which algorithms are used similarly to Netflix, which specify what lessons pupils see.
  3. In over 100 schools across the country, Marc Zuckerberg, the president of Facebook tests one of the most recent great ideas: software, which puts children under then care over their education, transforms teachers into facilitators , coaches and mentors.

This happens as follows: pupils group together, while working at their laptops. They use software to select their own tasks, working in their own pace. If they get stuck at a given stage, there is a teacher at hand to guide them.

By visiting a school like this, you fill like you were in the future. You feel like that’s how the education system should work.

Sense in new way of educating

It’s all about that pupils should be aware and discover that they may not achieve a success in the applied projects without learning the basics. Pupils think: „Ohh, I have to go back and get a deeper understanding”. These are the habits of success, which we try to implement among children, who just don’t blend in the usual system!

In 2015, Urban Promise Academy, a public high school in Oakland in California implemented a platform for their six-graders. Teachers helped pupils in setting realistic targets. The school is happy with the program and expanded is to seventh grade.

It is at the best path to achieve this vision. In 2015, 19 American schools applied Facebook software. In the subsequent school year, it was used by over 100 schools.
