WISE Learners' Voice

2013-14 Learners’ Voice

 The 2013-14 Learners’ were actively engaged in various activities designed to develop their  knowledge of current education issues as well as entrepreneurial, communication, and leadership skills.

The Program was delivered through two core residential sessions. The first residential session was held in Doha in January, covering modules on education and social entrepreneurship delivered by faculty from Wheelock College and Babson College (USA), respectively. The second residential session was hosted by Learners’ Voice partners Banco Santander (through its program Santander Universities) in Madrid, where Yale World Fellows and Studio Banana delivered a series of dynamic workshops on leadership, communication, and disruptive thinking.

The main goal of the Program is for the Learners to develop a project that addresses a critical issue in the field of education. The following project proposals have been developed during the course of the year:

  • Duende: A project addressing the social exclusion and stigmatization of Children Born of War in Uganda through arts education.   
  • ConnectEd: A mobile and web platform to improve student engagement and performance;
  • Orenda: A project engaging displaced populations in educative programs through the model of ‘co-creation’. 
  • Teach Abroad: An online platform to connect volunteer English teachers from all over the world to community centers in Haiti’s most marginalized areas;
  •  iSTEAM: A dynamic educational curriculum that uses cutting-edge technology such as 3D printing to bring 21st-century skills to students in Qatar
  • Passion to Profession: An innovative platform educating students about academic and career choices, and helping them make decisions based on their skills and passions.


In addition, the Learners participated in the following international education conferences where they were given the platform to share their views, present their projects and grow their networks:

After thorough evaluation, the following projects were selected to present at the 2014 WISE Summit:
