“Education is about educating the mind - the whole mind - in young people.
The whole mind comprises left brain + right brain + heart;
We begin by educating the heart - inculcating values & virtues;
Skills to master: compassion, courage, curiosity, commitment and calm - how to be good, empathetic human beings;
Teach kids the laws of harvest - we reap what we sow - and the laws of cause and consequences; teach them how to fish;
Teach them how to learn; make learning fun and joyful (as it should be);
Bringing Silicon Valley / the world into the classroom (create opportunities for doing, experimentations, failures and learnings);
Teachers / parents are igniters of the sparks inside our kids.”

- Yen-Lu Chow
A summary of his sharing with about 100 teachers and educators, on 
Establishing a Culture of Innovation in the Classroom - Nurturing Future-Ready Learners


In this webinar, we bring together practitioners from diverse fields to explore the topic of Nurturing Future-Ready Learners:

  • How as parents and educators we can better nurture in our children conscious creativity, critical thinking, learning by doing, heart-centered value-based decision-making, a growth mindset

  • How we can make education relevant for the Fifth Industrial Revolution, one that will be powered by AI and where humans and AI will coexist and collaborate side-by-side in the Future World of Work

Join us as we explore the critical topic of how as a society we can better prepare our kids to meet this New Future. Our future depends on it.
