About

Ask big questions. Learn what matters. Be ready for the future. Why we do what we do… We believe that of all the times in history, we need people to be learning and wanting to learn. Meanwhile, our outdated education system is in crisis: teaching people to memorise and regurgitate information, and do “conveyor belt” tasks even as AI is developed to replace them. Hundreds of millions are being taught skills that are rapidly becoming obsolete. According to the UN, 65% of children currently in primary school will go into jobs that don’t even exist yet. To prepare learners for an uncertain future, we need to be teaching how to think creatively and critically, to be curious, to love discovery, to build links between often separated ideas, and to work collaboratively. Our idea of winning has been greatly distorted. In nature, to win is to become a valued part of a community, not to dominate: if one entity dominates in nature, everything suffers. We believe that the role of teachers is changing: the leading teachers of the future will be those that inspire, engage, and act as charismatic tour guides of information, rather than top-down disseminators of it. The best teachers will design their teaching around nature, and help to bring diverse people and ideas together. About AimHi…
