Learning Designer

I am a passionate educator who love to create new curriculums to help learners enhance their 21st century skills. I enjoy learning innovative teaching methodologies and learning environments from various locations! I am also an avid traveler, amateur surfer, and SUP lover. I have lived in 4 different countries and currently reside in Germany where I got my Master's degree in Education (M.Ed.) and work as a Learning Designer.  

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

Because a platform like HundrED could play such an important role in sharing great teaching & learning practices and ideas to innovate our education. We will be able to collaborate, communicate, and connect with amazing educators around the world to bring education to the next level together. 

How can education support students to flourish?

Education is the key for human development and growth. Education supports and stimulates learners' curiosity. Curiosity and education should go hand in hand for learners to flourish. That is why our education systems and teaching & learning practices need innovation so that education can actually "support" learners to flourish in much deeper sense. 

What role does innovation play in education change?

Through innovative learning environment, education becomes "learning" instead of "schooling"; education becomes student-centric instead of teacher-centric. Students are the ones leading own learning. Innovation plays an important role to make this happen.
