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

The HundrED Community is a global network of educators sharing learning and innovations. It is a dream place to be a part of and I see my participation in this community as a great opportunity to learn from and share with some of the most brilliant teachers in the world.

How can education support students to flourish?

Education is a very important tool for empowering people especially in developing nations like Nigeria. Students have a chance to learn about principles that they can apply to improve their lives. It is my belief that educations has to produce results that can transform individuals, communities and systems that control both.

What role does innovation play in education change?

It is said that to get what you never had, you have to do what you have never done. This holds true in education that to continually evolve and overcome the emerging challenges in the world, what we learn and teach, and how we educate the next generation must also evolve progressively. Innovations provide the much-needed gateway to improve outcomes of education and build more sustainable society.
