I really enjoy speaking to people about the changes and shifts taking place in education today. There are a host of early adopters out there trying and succeeding at bringing contemporary learning ideas more suitable for today’s world.
Doris Korda is one of them.
Doris is the associate head at Hawken School in Ohio, USA. She leads the Hawken Entrepreneurial Studies program designed to change how students think, solve problems and learn.
After a quick overview, we start out talking a lot about a tea shop and how it becomes a teachable and scaffolding moment for students. It makes more sense once you hear about it.
Doris also shares her incredible outreach efforts as she continues to share and spread how to develop entrepreneurial studies in any school.
Doris is a featured speaker at the Global Education Leadership Summit in Bangkok this coming April. For more information, head to the summit website: GELS.Asia
Prior to her 20 years as an educator, Doris spent 15 years in the software industry building out products and businesses from raw technology. Doris left business to become an educator, and is currently number two at Hawken School, where Doris designed and directs Hawken’s Entrepreneurial Studies program
