To create a quality, affordable, peer-to-peer learning platform. For people who:
-Are driven by a passion to share real-world skills based on his or her individual expertise.
-Have a broad spectrum of interests and want to try something out.
The first phase of the project aims to connect high school students with college students. High school students can get a taste of what college life, figure out what they want to learn in college among a broad spectrum of interests and get prepared for higher education. College students can make some money sharing what they are good at, what they have experienced and what they are learning.
The project would be based in Boston, taking advantage of the great university resources in Boston area.
This week I’ve got in touch with the director for Harvard Secondary School Program, GSD J-term and Career Discovery, GSD Project Link, Flinja. I’m scheduling several interviews with them, trying to find out how they reach out to high school students, what are the connection built that I can borrow, what are the most popular interests from past experience. Meanwhile, I’m conceptualizing the website interface.
