  5. 5. my Path The goal of myPath is to inspire and motivate kids to learn. Through mentorships with working professionals, kids learn how their education is relevant to future careers. ✦ Education based on results: kids work on projects that they choose. Throughout the course of each project, they learn traditional educational subjects as well as life skills not taught in classes. ✦ Mix: myPath is a flexible learning structure which involves both “theory classes” with teachers and hands-on practice with professionals.Wednesday, March 14, 12

  7. 7. Project based ✦ At MY PATH we offer real-life projects related to different careers and paths that the student may be interested in ✦ Modular: the student chooses which and how many projects he/she wants to participate in. Students are given the opportunity to have a direct impact on the course their education takes. ✦ Adaptive: every student progresses through myPath at their own pace, progressing to more challenging activities as quickly, or slowly, as they are ready.Wednesday, March 14, 12
