Thereâ€™s nobody more inspiring than a passionate teacher, and no one whose help MentorMob needs more to successfully disrupt education.
Which is why, if youâ€™re a driven, tech savvy, “thinking outside the box” teacher, weâ€™re asking for your help in our online education experiment.
Itâ€™s a contentious issue, but we have to agree withÂ Patrick Gibbons that an outdated educational system canâ€™t be tackled from the top down. Policy typically changes only when a new strategy has already improved studentsâ€™ learning experience in the classroom. Which means kickass teachers who introduce compelling new tools directly to their kids are our best bet in the struggle to reshape education for 21st century needs and 21st century brains.
But MentorMob is just a tool. And while we incorporate the gaming and social media mechanics into learning that make Facebook so dangerously addictive, we need motivated teachers and students to build Learning Playlists and share them as a component of their unofficial onlineÂ curriculum.
We want to help. Just let us know how.
