TEACHERS ARE LEARNERS
"Life long Learning" is the objective for everyone, especially the guardians of an effective education system. Since the world has changed the way we communicate, learn, work and live we all are challenged to adapt to our digital environment. Even more so in the most remote location of the globe where infrastructures are scarce.
Education must prepare the learner for life. Hence teachers at the helm of learnging institutions should be the first to be committed to mobile and digital learning because their task is to teach and mentor the next generation for a productive life in a post industrial 4.0 world
"From learning to earning" must be the motto for a modern education system. To enter todays workforce only the digitally literate stand a chance to secure a well paid job.
To fight poverty it is no longer a question if digital skills should be aquired, but rather how and when they become part of our daily routines?
wiLearn therefore believes that teachers and facilitators who are unskilled to inlcude multimedia information in lesson plans are falling behind. They urgently need a thorough skills training opportuntiy and a comprehensive digital library to catch up with the fast paced information age.
