Our Wednesday September15th Altru Institute Salon will hear about a revolutionary approach to K-12 education that is a departure from the “assembly line” model that has failed us.
Guest speaker has spent her career in education and founded Omnis Education which she believes is the school of the future. We saw Jenn Sutherland-Miller at the ASU+GSV Summit where she was on panel the future of education. She is among a growing number of entrepreneurs seeking to reinvent education.
The Omnis model bring together world class subject matter experts to create vetted, curated learning that can be accessed anywhere, any time. Incorporating the best practices of remote work with online learning. It is a platform where learners can connect with each other and teachers to create world class educational experiences outside the four walls of a classroom. Its self-directed learning model enables parents to design their child’s curriculum catered to the child’s interests, passions and at the child’s pace vs. the lock-step traditional model. This unique approach is described at www.omniseducation.com/faqs/
We think this technology-leveraged approach could deliver high-quality private school education at a cost of $15,000 per student. Altru is exploring the launch of micro schools (50 to 100 students) for 5th to 8th grade in New York City utilizing commercial real estate now vacant because of COVID.
Jenn and her team have decades of experience in education including in New York City. Jenn has been a teacher in traditional schools and then later developing world class education for children outside the four walls of a classroom. In addition to successfully homeschooling her own four children, from birth to university entrance while traveling the world, full time, for over a decade, Jenn has a degree in education and has worked with hundreds of families as a consultant and educational coach.
