How can education support students to flourish?

Creating an environment that helps students question, think, build, persevere and create is the base to high quality education. Teaching empathy, resilience and time management as well as giving children opportunities to equip themselves in this world builds character.

What role does innovation play in education change?

The future is changing at a such fast speed, that many times institutions are not able to adapt and transform itself to the new requirements and needs. Innovation is essential to provide validated transformations and new approaches that can be incorporated to adapt to those changes. Innovations changes and improves education in a way that it makes everyone think differently.
