We believe teachers can transform the world.
As a teacher, you are a role model and “shaper of minds” and have the power to ensure your students get what they need from their education to reach their fullest potential. You can foster an environment in your classroom that cultivates creativity and a higher level of thinking.
What is the new economy?
The twenty-first century brings with it a new kind of economy that requires different types of skills and a new mindset. Consequently, organisations are looking for employees that are talented at creative and critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication skills; businesses are looking for workers with an innovative mindset.
Our education system needs to transform
Unfortunately, our education system still operates on a twentieth-century traditional pedagogy where education is about transferring knowledge to students. This pedagogy was designed for past requirements and doesn’t meet current needs.
As a result, we developed an innovative programme “PBL and Beyond” that revolutionises the current pedagogy. This programme amplifies your impact and creates tomorrow’s leaders and change-makers.
This powerful transformation is accomplished by harnessing the power of Design Thinking.
You have the power to drive this transformation
You are one of the most significant factors in a successful transformation from traditional to innovative pedagogy. By creating a meaningful, authentic, rich, student-centric learning experience for your students, you can empower your students and create tomorrow’s innovators.
Therefore, there is no need to wait for policymakers to slowly change existing policies and drive a top-down transformation of this massive education system. In fact, there is no time to waste: our children need this kind of education now.
This transformation in our education system starts with you. It is time to bring your classroom to the forefront of education and provide your students with the learning experience they need. And we are here to help you achieve this goal.
Founder - Ortal Green
Ortal is a passionate educator with a mission to empower teachers to create tomorrow’s innovators in their classrooms.
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, important skills such as creative thinking and the development of an innovative mindset, to name a few, were being left out. Having a strong 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 a programme for schools, “PBL and Beyond”. This programme provides the needed paradigm shift in education by introducing Design Thinking as the new pedagogy.
Ortal has been a teacher educator for a few years now. She feels privileged to have the opportunity to guide, support, and empower teachers to create a deeper, authentic, innovative, student-centred educational setting in their classrooms. It brings her happiness to see firsthand how participation in “PBL and Beyond” transforms both teachers' and students' ways of thinking and creates a learning environment that meets the twenty-first-century needs.
Ortal also wrote the book “Think Unique” which empowers teachers to create tomorrow’s innovators in their classrooms. This book provides teachers with the knowledge and tools required to set up children for success in the 21st century.
