Words from our founder

"My generation has witnessed digital technologies steadily appear in every aspect of our lives, impacting the way we work, travel, shop, learn and even play.

I founded TechTrain with the firm belief that technology should not dominate the lives of our children! They must become more than simple technology consumers by engaging with it in healthy and useful ways. They must learn to harness it, to shape it, and to create it, in order to meet the major challenges in their lives, in professional and social contexts, and at local and global scales.

Education is being disrupted worldwide, and a rethink of how we teach and learn is underway. TechTrain's vision is to adapt the 'toolkit' that a school provides to its students, allowing them to become the effective problem-solvers and leaders of the future. This toolkit integrates tech literacy and global awareness with a mix of essential skills: critical-collaborative-computational thinking abilities, based in, and through, English language acquisition."
