On April 15th, the Global Schools Program had the privilege of hosting Aakansha Kedia,
Learning Architect & Senior Program Manager, Education at Project FUEL. Aakansha led the Global Schools network in an interactive professional development session on learning and wisdom. Through a series of interactive activities, educators went through Project FUEL's educational methodology used in classrooms around the world.
Listed as the world's top 100 innovations, Project FUEL’s educational methodology has served more than 400,000 people across 35 countries in the last 13 years and has been formally adopted in the learning ecosystems of Antwerp, Belgium, Pittsburgh, USA and Arusha, Tanzania.
In this session, participants explored questions such as: "What if learning was not just an educational qualification rather a way of life?" "What does it take to raise a wise child?".
Project FUEL also, "collects life lessons from people all over the world and turns them into interactive and performance activities, to pass on the learnings... life lessons are continuously collected, documented, thought about deeply and then turned into performance activities. This ensures that you don't just hear someone's lesson in words but experience it tangibly, and apply it practically in your own life." Project FUEL is collecting 1 million life lessons, and Global Schools members can submit their life lesson here.
In addition, educators are encouraged to check-out Project FUEL's educational modules here to use in their classrooms and schools.

Global Schools thanks Project FUEL for leading a wonderful workshop for its educator network and looks forward to future collaborations!
