Ambassador, HundED & Student Big believer of a change via educational innovations

I am a senior at Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey. My major is Preschool Education. I am also interested in social politics and educational policies. I am a volunteer at a non-profit organization in the university for the last two years. I have worked with disadvantaged children in different cities in Turkey. I did an internship at both private and public preschools in Istanbul. I am trying to be updated with the current trends in educational approaches.

Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

I believe that innovations in education can affect many individuals as well as communities as a whole, change the future for better. That is why I want to be a part of that change in hundrED Community.

How can education support students to flourish?

Education can help children to become aware of themselves, what they are capable, what they are interested in, how much they can accomplish, and support them to realize and achieve their full potential.

What role does innovation play in education change?

We are in a global world in which accessing information is much easier. However, that also means that everything changes quickly, and new information about learning and education are being discovered and developed every day. Educational methods and educators should also keep up with those changes and should not be stuck at old-fashioned methods. I think innovations play an important part to lead the way to change the old-fashioned methods to new and effective ones.
