we are Mingaile and Tautvydas, experienced educators who have been working with children for seven years now. Child psychologist and teacher or - Wade into Adventure, travelers and bloggers looking for adventures and wading across the heavens and all the way through the graves of education.
In education we see the greatest purpose and the need for a systemic change. Therefore, we set ourselves the purpose to visit exceptional schools scattered around the world. To be in these schools, to observe, to participate in their daily activities and build the relationship with various school communities.
During that 1 to 3 days of a visit we will be trying to extract their strengths, uniqueness and ways to communicate with a child in the school.
We are sharing our expedition’s map of chosen schools in Europe (I stage):
We are interested in schools that has years of experience by creating an innovative, conscious, empowering educational environment in which students can develop an authentic, creative, emphatic, responsible, critical thinking, open, flexible, complex problem solving, confident, healthy personality.
Most of us understand the complexity of education mechanism and how difficult it is to change some things. We still have a huge gap between governmental and private schools. Unfortunately, these progressive schools are accessible to a very small percentage of people.
Therefore, it is important to reduce the gap between the private and public education in order to achieve quality and modern education for every child.
It is said that a genuine change must first come from within the individual, only then can he or she attempt to make a significant contribution to humanity.
This is our choice to make a contribution to humanity and do as much as we can to deliver the best for the future. And as hopeful as we are, we do believe that we have the power to bring a little more light into this world.
On the way we will be reflecting our experiences by blogging and vlogging about it. Eventually we will make a film in which we will put the most inspiring and empowering moments in all of our three stages of the expedition (I Europe, II North and Central America and Asia). With the help of the film we want to use our knowledge and encourage school communities to develop.
Our dedication and your support can make a huge and positive impact on future education.
With these funds we will be able to rent a camper van, buy fuel, pay for the road taxes and film equipment. We can promise that all the funds will be spend for us to reach the goal of this journey. We will be very clear about that.
We surrender to your hands. Lead us through the schools of the world. Wade with us into adventure and build the Nation of Education!
