What problem do you want to solve?

Google's global education evangelist, Jaime Casap, said at the recent Education Innovation Conference in Phoenix that kids are no longer inspired by the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?".  Kids know that, in the 21st Century, jobs and even occupations are temporary.  He said, however, that there is a question that kids find inspiring: "What problem do you want to solve?"

Kids know there are plenty of problems in their community, their country, and the world, and are inspired by the idea of solving them.  But solving problems requires knowledge and skills, which must be earned by learning and doing.  So the follow-up questions are, "What are the knowledge and skills that are needed to solve the problem?" and "How do I earn them?" StarShine Academy is here to help kids find answers to those questions.
