Currently working on..

Just launched my startup - www.saveby.com - and it has nothing to do with education. Or does it?

Officially - not. Saveby is a platform for self-serve group shopping. I hope the going through this startup will help me reach my next startup, my education related startup, which requires a much larger investment.

But - what does it have to do with education? In a way, Saveby is attempting to educate and change the way people do shopping today. Changing shopping habits seems a lot easier then changing education paradigms. Perhaps this is because the shopping arena was never something as constructed as the education system (or systems, where ever they are). Shopping, market places, in the most part, was run by the people, the mass, the mob, the market forces. They are those who drive the prices of tomatoes up or down. But when it comes to education, the market forces are paralyzed by the governments control. The voices of the clients - that is the students and their parents, isn't heard. Even those at the front of the shop - the teachers and principals lack the real power to change.

But I hope that things are starting to change. The internet is slowly but surely shifting more power to the people and more people are voicing their opinions, desires and intentions. I listen to these voices every Tuesday when I join #edchat on twitter, and almost every day in discussions on FiresideLearning. Hope to see you there too.

The Global Connection of Learning

Recently I was asked by a fellow networker "what are my intentions". So the need to explain came up. I am networking with teachers and parents and educators from all over the world. What are my intentions? To understand what do all teachers and teachings share and what they all miss. To see how my vision can help the process of learning all over the world. Can it help?



My vision is one of social learning. But unlike the historical term which related to the way the elders would have… Continue
