To do so effectively there is a wide range of tasks we need to start working on. Starting by deciding the school we are willing to help. Are the kids at the school mature enough? Is the town small enough for our legacy to be impacting? Will our project be sustainable? Where will it be? To then be able to decide what workshops to teach for them to apply that learning into a relevant problem solving challenge we propose. Ideally, something for them that requires the use of surrounding resources to actually make them benefit their community in some way. And obviously, we need to see how we go, what we do, how we do it, etc.
Probably you're wondering how can this experience be as efficient to measure learning as an exam. We agree the biggest difference is that our way isn't the standardized one. It isn't the one accepted by public. But part of our purpose is to show through a video that it's possible, you even leave something behind, and you help people who need help: something extremely satisfying. But now, after all the units we've been through, all of the learning methods we've experienced, all of the lessons we learned from failures and iterations; we should know something about how to learn and how to leave an impact. About how to serve a group of poor kids for them to succeed. And yes, this means redefining success. For them to be happy, to improve constantly, and to use their resources to be the best they can be. Because everything's relevant. We won't set a mark. We want them to become better. And after the week-long project we conduct, we'll see in their performances and development our response, our feedback, and our growth as well.
Because of the relevancy, we face the chance to share an experience we believe in with people who at the moment don't have access to and most importantly to establish and proof our society that it's fine to change, to do things in new ways. Not just in terms of how education should be. But in general. To focus on fostering development and constant improvement. To follow your passion. And above all, self satisfaction.
Hopefully, we can still understand the true meaning of this last term.
