Find your niche

By | Mirror Network | No Comments

The Niche Movement, started by Kevin O’Connell, is helping every young professional avoid employment unhappiness while disrupting career development one tweet & interaction at a time. In 2012, Kevin set out to help college students and recent graduates, who, frankly, may be a little bit lost. There’s a lot of information out there when it comes to landing your first job or internship – lots of listings and lots of profiles, but the Niche Movement is about sifting through all of that and trying to find a new viewpoint for you to take charge of your life.

You can suscribe to the NicheList, a weekly summary of all the jobs 20 something actually would want to get. You can bring the movement to your campus and you can join the “I love my job campaign”.

Rocketship, a charter school network skyrocketing

By | Mirror Network | No Comments

There are many charter schools now available to families in the US but not so many in underprivileged neighborhoods, specially schools offering personalized learning as well as creating a real learning community. That’s what Rocketship is doing.

Innovation is essential to the founding team and clearly visible through the learning labs, the rotational models and the blended learning options they have created. They work hard in order to eliminate the achievement gap in the US within our lifetime. They have strong partners from the Tech world and that reflects their commitment to keep including all the best new digital options in their models.

A real Ed-business, doing well by doing good. Let’s hope they will manage to scale up while maintaining the right balance between their human touch and the use of e-learning tools.

Project Zero, beyond learning – by Harvard Graduate School of Education

By | Knowledge Economy, Mirror Network | No Comments

Project Zero was founded by the philosopher Nelson Goodman at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 1967 to study and improve education in the arts. Goodman believed that arts learning should be studied as a serious cognitive activity, but that “zero” had yet been firmly established about the field; hence, the project was given its name.

Over the years, Project Zero has maintained a strong research agenda in the arts while gradually expanding to include investigations into the nature of intelligence, understanding, thinking, creativity, cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural thinking, and ethics. The organization has conducted dozens of major research initiatives, published over 90 books and hundreds of articles and reports, and collaborated with countless partners. Project Zero’s work takes place nationally and internationally, in a variety of settings; while much of the research occurs in schools, an increasing amount is focused on businesses, cultural organizations such as museums, and online. In addition, Project Zero offers symposia and workshops, most notably the annual summer institutes.

Panorama – surveys made easy to improve education

By | Mirror Network | No Comments

Panorama helps America’s leading schools collect, analyze, and act on feedback using student, teacher, and parent surveys.

The company was founded by 3 Yale young graduates who went straight to Y combinator incubator in California as they clearly were targeting a high potential market. They wanted to enable schools to gather feedback from teachers, students and parents to improve their culture and processes. Consultants are expensive and feedbacks are not personalized. Panorama made it possible to create surveys (online or on paper) and to receive concrete analysis of the responses. More than 5000 schools are now using the software as a device and Mark Zuckerberg is one of their investors.

State, what matters is what you think

By | Knowledge Economy, Mirror Network | No Comments

The world is buzzing. We are surrounded by so much noise everyday, ads, news, emails,… But yet we never quite have the impression that we have a voice. Social networks have been amazing at liberating the parole and in helping populations even to express themselves but still most conversations are more about daily entertainment and you can only share messages with people you already know.

State aims at changing that. On this website you can share your thoughts with the whole world. No limits to push your thoughts forward and having an impact. You can start a debate, rally people around your idea, and the more you state the stronger your network becomes. State enables you to see what people really think about a topic, no need for hashtags and targeted prose. Free thinking, free talking, free sharing, this might lead to some major global waves and building.

The floor is ours !
