[ARCHIVED: Round 1] Introduce Yourself


Hi , I’m Hoi from Tokyo, and I’m a member of Mistletoe, a Japanese social impact community. In particular, I am involved in projects related to edtech and startups working on new generation education.


Hello! I’m the principal of a public elementary school in a large, urban school district. I look forward to learning together with people from all over the world to improve the ways in which we foster creativity, play, joy and wonder into our schools.

Looking forward to it!


Hi This is Bao Wen, from Taipei, Taiwan. We are a Reggio-Emilia inspired early child education institute. Our mission is to create kids’ education for the creative age. We believe the future of education is children-centered and creativity-focused. We see education as an important way to help facilitate children’s rich expressions. We value every aspect of children’s uniqueness and appreciate their own stories above all.

Looking forward to the course!


Hello! My name is Murilo! I’m a Brazilian creative technologist but I am still figuring out what those three words mean :slight_smile: .

I’ve been in Sweden for a few years where I created and played with a lot of children through projects such as Kids Hack Day, Strawbees and Quirkbot. Currently I’m in London working at Kano Computing.

I feel everything that comes out of the Lifelong Kindergarten resonates a lot with me. I have been dreaming of approaching the group as a student for a while and LCL is a perfect opportunity for now!


Hi everyone!

9 people in my school (including myself) are reading the ‘Lifelong Kindergarten’ book together. We are using our readings and personal reflections, along with this course as a way of enriching our personal and collective group learning. Our 9-12 school is in the early stages of launching a strategic plan and we have been asked to consider the following three driving questions:

  1. What skills and attributes do students need to be successful in the future?
  2. How is the world changing?
  3. How might we prepare our students for the future?

Throughout the fall everyone on staff has been going out in groups to various businesses, start-ups, schools, universities, etc. to ask these questions. Our head of school recommended ‘Lifelong Kindergarten’ as something worthy of considering. So, here we are and here we grow!

If any other teams are out there working together to enrich their collaborative understanding of the LCL MOOC and/or the book, then please reach out and let us know how you are doing and what you might suggest that might enhance our experience.

My school is Lakefield College in Ontario, Canada.



My name is Tayler Morencie and I am a Visual Arts teacher at Lakefield College School in Lakefield, Ontario, Canada. My colleagues and I are exploring the LCL course together while reading Lifelong Kindergarten with the hope that we will be able to apply our learning and discoveries to our own classrooms and school community.

Excited to start this course!
