In a world where information is available at your fingertips and disruptive innovations are changing the way we work, live and communicate; we think it is time to redefine the goals of learning. Learning is not about certificates, acing exams, lectures and notes anymore! Learning is about knowing and exploring your potential, leveraging your strengths to stand out and making good choices, it is about looking for opportunities to solve problems and making change happen. We, at Sparkling Mindz, believe that learning should Inspire, Engage and Empower children for life.
Sparkling Mindz was founded by Harvard, IIM, ISB alumni with a vision to create innovative learning experiences and make education relevant in the 21st century. We believe that when we create inspiring, engaging and empowering Reggio-Emilia inspired, game-based learning experiences for children across ages, we create confident learners for life.
We are looking for passionate individuals who think that it is time our learning systems were innovated. Your primary role will be to work towards creating systems to inspire, engage and empower children and other stakeholders to sustain the transformation.
