We teach kids to code, to make, to entrepreneur their own outcomes. We build young developers, engineers, creative thinkers and leaders.
We collaborate with University partners to build unique methods and scalable tools for k-12 schools to use in reaching all students in this area of learning.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity in your industry?
Bringing computational thinking and entrepreneurial thinking to the masses to avert the catastrophe of a failing education system not equipped to produce capable labor units for a future that is already changed drastically from the format our current model is designed to serve.
Methods are required to avert the catastrophe of public manipulation that becomes possible and easy when technical literacy and healthy labor leverage has been erased from all but the elite layers of Society.
What impact will changes in your industry have on consumers? the world?
When students are no longer only the consumers of a standardized educational experience, but the makers of a personal education journey… the relationship between student and teacher shifts forever…the relationship between public and private changes forever… the ideas driving volunteers and entrepreneurs change everything.
What is your biggest goal right now?
Building relationships with education leaders in the K-12 space using the OYOclass.com platform and kidOYO methods.
What kind of support or types of people do you need to accelerate your success?
We can make great use of people with skills in any programming language. Engineers with an interest in passing skills onto young people through unique challenges. Funding support that serves structural independence and empowers relationships between partners playing distinct roles in a heterarchical systems approach… and respects the idea of everyone OYO…owning your own participation. Course developers, mentors, advisers, teachers, and research professionals with a creative imagination 🙂
What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
Our approach is unique.. we have been refining our methods for many years, well before it was cool to code, or startup entrepreneurs dominated our imaginations.. and have tested our methods in rural schools, urban schools, poor communities, wealthy communities, gifted classrooms, special needs classrooms… without marketing hype, fanfare or global data-capture strategies driving our efforts.
We are an independent as in #indie, non-profit as in #publicbenefit effort aimed at changing what education and opportunity look like to young people, teachers, families and local community volunteers.
Oh yeah… our CS/Engineering methods started with the youngest learners and have advanced up to include students from top Universities around world.
