Empowering teachers to create tomorrow's innovators

Creating Great Thinkers

Why We Need a Different Approach to Education

In today's world, where AI, machine learning, automation, and robots are taking over many jobs, the skills our children need to thrive are the ones that set us apart from computers. Imagination, creative thinking, and innovative problem-solving are now more critical than ever.

The Problem with Our Current Education System

Unfortunately, due to the design of the current education system, children are unlearning their natural creativity.

Schools focus on rote memorization and standardized testing, leaving no room for the development of these superhuman skills.

As a result, children are not being equipped with the skills and ways of thinking they need to succeed in the rapidly changing world.

Bridging the Gap with Glittering Minds

At Glittering Minds, we are bridging the gap between what the education system provides and what our children need to thrive.

Our mission is to support schools, teachers, and parents in creating innovative learning environments that nurture creativity, innovative problem-solving, and critical thinking.

We focus on developing socially, emotionally, and globally aware children.

Through project-based learning, Design Thinking, and creative thinking, we help kids build confidence in their problem-solving capabilities and empower them to drive change in their communities.

Our Impact

We have worked with over 2,000 teachers and parents across the globe, providing them with the knowledge, framework, tools, and strategies needed to create engaging and enriching learning experiences.

Our powerful learning materials help create environments where children can learn, share, grow, and take their thinking capabilities to the next level.

Join the Glittering Minds Movement

Imagine a world where children are excited about learning, where disengaged students become active participants, and where education transforms lives.

With Glittering Minds, this vision becomes a reality.

Founder - Ortal Green

Ortal is a passionate educator with a mission to empower parents and teachers to create tomorrow’s innovators.

She started her career as a computer scientist and worked for top global hi-tech companies such as IBM and Mercury for several years. Working at the forefront of this cutting-edge industry helped her understand the impact of technology on the future of work.

Additionally, as Ortal watched her three sons' journeys through primary school, she realised they were not being prepared for this future.

While Ortal saw the movement towards STEM as going in the right direction, essential skills such as creative thinking and the development of an innovative mindset, to name a few, were being left out. Having a solid technological background and being a Design Thinking practitioner, she was able to see that there was a need and a way to bridge this gap.

Therefore, Ortal co-founded “Glittering Minds” and created an innovative school program. This program provides the needed paradigm shift in education by introducing Design Thinking as the new pedagogy.

Ortal is also a renowned international speaker and recipient of the prestigious GIFEW Global Evolutionary Woman Award in Education in 2022. Her passion for education and innovative problem-solving has earned her a reputation as a sought-after expert in her field.


She also uses her knowledge and expertise to help business owners unlock their full potential and achieve success. Her wealth of experience and exceptional problem-solving skills have already empowered over 1,000 business owners achieve their goals.

Her innovative approach has inspired many to learn from her and apply her techniques in their own businesses.


Ortal is also an award-winning author. She wrote a few books that empower parents and teachers to create tomorrow’s innovators.  These books provide teachers and parents with the knowledge and tools required to set up children for success in the 21st century.
