I have been working in the education sector for 10 year. I worked as a Content Developer and Editor in various projects such as algorithmic thinking, cyberbullying, and digital footprint for children.

I was amazed by the imagination and creativity of children. Their brain works differently. I was inspired by their wide imagination. The social enterprise ‘Sen de Yaz’ which I have been working on since 2018, finally engaged with students and teachers in 2020. I think the most valuable thing that should be invested in the world is the education of children. I think we have a lot to learn from them.

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

Hundred is a great platform for (following the current developments in the world) and meeting new people working in the field of education; hence, I want to be a part of this community because this platform brings together people who discuss the existing education issues in all of countries and find its solutions. Moreover, it also serves as an opportunity to find great network.

How can education support students to flourish?

From my perspective, education means providing guidance to the students on how to match their emotions, intuition, and abilities to the extent they can reach their full potential. I believe that we can flourish the students through their creativity, self-realization, and by providing them a better education that would made them better adults who live a unique and happy life.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovation reduces the stability and repetition in education. It makes education a dynamic, flexible and developing form. Thus, education can adapt itself to changing life in the world.
