The future of learning starts here
Yotribe is a global community of young learners, that offers a safe and engaging space to the members. It’s a sort of social network for teenagers, focused on learning and self-development. The Yotribers gain access to a treasure trove of interesting content, learning events and courses, enabling them to build critical life-skills and preparing them to succeed in any career path they choose. These life skills are critical in today’s global knowledge economy.
Professor Richard Elmore of Harvard University has put forth four learning modes in his research, of which the ‘Distributed-Collective’ is the most effective and natural mode for learning. It assumes that learners can learn without a hierarchical structure and that the learning is enhanced and motivated by networks of common interests. Yotribe is based on the ‘Distributed Collective’ model, where teenagers assume leadership roles to drive various activities of the community. To make learning fun and to maximize the learning outcomes – Yotribe follows a PEPS approach –
- Personalized – Liberal learning space, where learners choose what they want to learn, how they want to learn it, and from whom.
- Experiential – Emphasis on practical application rather than theory.
- Playful – Fun and gamified environment to learn and grow.
- Social – Collective learning approach, encouraging peer to peer learning.
A variety of cohort-based workshops and educational programs are offered on Yotribe, by experts and practitioners from around the world. The courses are aimed to develop both hard and soft skills, such as entrepreneurship, photography, sustainable living, design thinking, blog writing, and lots more.
