Episode 4: Sallome Hralima - The Future Project

"Education is something you give yourself, and school is any place where you go to learn." - Words from the wise mother of Sallome Hralima  (Tweet this!) 

Today I talk with Sallome who acts as the mastermind Chief Dream Director behind the The Future Project.

You can check out Sallome's personal work here  and read more about The Future Project here.

To give you an idea of what students have created so far you can watch this video and check out Flutter, created by 17-year old Raenuka Reneau.

My favorite idea? One current student-scientist is working to create a hoverboard. I'll make sure to post a picture of me riding it when it gets patented. 

Towards the end of the interview, Sallome opens up and honestly shares her thoughts on what's missing in the school design and how The Future Project works to fill these gaps. Take, for example, the importance to build an innovative school culture that views failure as a learning tool. 

Make sure to watch the launch of Dream.org on 8-28-2013 as well as join The Future Project commemorate the I Have a Dream speech given by one of our nation's greatest dreamers, Martin Luther King Jr. 

It means so much to me to have you listen in and get to share these stories with you.

If there is a topic you'd like addressed or perhaps someone you think I should interview please send me an email at markwguay@gmail.com.

So, what do YOU think?  if you were a student in high school today, what would you ask your dream director to help you achieve? Tell me by leaving a comment below.
