TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The Smart Spin staff is driven by a hunger to learn, show, tell and share what they found, and what took their breath away. Those of us who create and curate include academics​, entrepreneurs, creatives, instructional designers, writers and designers, working together to weave educational journeys that delight as much as educate. Our collective experience spans many years and multiple industries. We bring together many disciplines to compose online portals into knowledge. But most importantly, unlike any other learning platform, our “Board of Discovery” is made up of children and their parents, who have the taste, judgement and preternatural wisdom to know what’s good, great and downright mind busting. Their key test for picking content? “Hey, I didn’t notice I was learning!”

MY TEACHING STYLE

Smart Spin believes in nurturing the natural curiosity within the young hungry minds of our learners. We are making navigation, typically a mere functional activity, into an experience; into an intellectual endeavor where the exploration of information becomes an adventure, an amusement, entertainment, a journey. It helps tell the story. It helps unlock the imagination. We don’t want learners to come with something in mind. We want them to come with an open mind, and have their minds blown. Let’s make sure every ‘learn’ is surrounded by excitement, joy and an undiminished spirit for exploration. The spirit we are born with that must be fed. We are implementing: Self-directed learning, intrinsic motivation, micro-learning, phenomenon-based learning and combinatorial thinking.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Smart Spin was selected for, and is supported by, the EDUCATE program, in association with the UCL institute of knowledge and the EU development fund, as well as Nesta and BESA. Mentored and advised by some of the leading figures in education technology, Smart Spin is constructing groundbreaking and innovative, evidence-based pedagogies.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Smart Spin has been providing a larger community of educators with a platform to take their teaching to the next level. Our team has previously worked with many populations, across many ages of learners, to deliver the best quality of educations. Our own daughter now begins to learn about the world. She doesn’t follow a curriculum and we do not assess her with standardized exams. She is two, so she literally stumbles upon it, and we listen to her as she asks about it. We might not always know the answer (no problem, we can always look it up), but it is the excitement about the world that we want to feed. “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire,” said Yeats. That is what we hope her education will be. That is why we are creating Smart Spin. We love to learn; we don’t want her to ever stop loving it. We are here to make a difference in how digital technologies are used by both teachers and students.
