LEARN & EXPERIENCE

THE WORLD!

PRESCHOOL & ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

We are pioneers. Education like you've never experienced it. 

We didn't bring the classroom indoors, we brought it out into the world!

How

does it work?

We believe education is about imagining possibilities and making solutions to problems we discover. 

 

 

 

 

We inspire students through experiential learning and immerse them into a specific topic with online LIVE expeditions, then we ask our students to develop research projects based on what they learned guided by live sessions with a teacher as well. 
 

Each day is set in two moods:


IMAGINE

Students learn about the history of the Roman Empire with an expedition teacher LIVE on location at the Colosseum in Rome, Italy. 

 

MAKE

Students work on projects about the Roman Empire with other students around the world guided by live online sessions with their homeroom teacher.

On top of this, you can schedule tutoring sessions at a convenient time for you.

We also offer parenting support. You are not alone in this!

We are trying to accomplish the unthinkable by partnering with institutions around the world from the Darwin Research Station in Galápagos Islands, the University of Texas Rio Grande, and Your Sisters Foundation in Tanzania.

 

We are driven by our experience in these elements:

STUDENT MOTIVATION
We find professional purpose and meaning through enjoyment. This type of joy must start in school. Our job is to make our students happy so they learn better... and this also applies to their parents! 

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING
Just like any adventure, the best quality of learning happens when we immerse ourselves in experiences, because that's how the real world works.  

PROJECT BASED LEARNING

Learning improves when students take charge! Making solutions to real-world challenges helps them find talents and realization; what they do and think matters. 

EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION 

Put simply, we are an education research and design incubator, and we are constantly thinking about solving education's new obstacles through creative strategies.

EXPERTS

Imagine the possibilities of an education system designed to offer results by furthering the enjoyment of learning.

 

IMAGINE & MAKE

LIVE EXPEDITIONS

We learn through stories... we enrich our imagination through diversity... and we empower ourselves by doing!

We partner with people all over the world to offer LIVE classes in the most incredible places on Earth!  

This kind of experiential learning in real-life settings immerses our students in different cultures, enhances their learning processes, and allows us to teach complex subjects at earlier ages.

FROM OUR FOUNDER

Uh oh, we've been through a lot, but I'll keep it short-ish! 

 

Here's our story... I studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto, and I did memory research at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. We published in Nature. Then my mom passed away on new year in 2014, and her school lacked a director all of sudden, so I chipped in. I stepped in to finish the school cycle thinking we'd shut down. 

 

In the meantime I was on a mission to improve the way the school conducted curricular design because I didn't want to send our kids packing without seeing the best of what my mother's school could do for them. A lot was needed, and  we were almost bankrupt when I took over. Unaware, her school became a lesson to me as an adult. I found purpose and meaning in the most difficult times of my life through helping students learn better by designing a new education system that highlighted neuronal development to assess their needs. I called the system EDITH, a short for Education Diversified in the Imaginative use of Talents for Happiness, but mostly because it was my mom's name. 

In this new learning methodology I wanted to include "everything" my mother and father strived for when they raised my brother and I. This intellectual curiosity drove us to implement additions to this system, and our quest with experiential learning and multiple intelligences started... so the EDITH Foundation took off with projects in Mexico City, and then Toronto in Canada.

Now since February 2020, we started teaming up to make new services that would bring educational innovation (but this time online), and in the same way we've been doing it since 2014. We are bold. Through creativity and a lot of research in learning science, we want to find new avenues that have not been explored in education.

 

We started contacting people all over the world to join our cause. They couldn't believe what we were trying to attempt: ultra immerssive live interactive online lessons in some really crazy parts of the world like the Sahara Desert, but it worked!

We found a lot of excitement when we shared the idea. The type of excitement that brings purpose and meaning into a teacher's life, and by experience we know this is a recipe for success. Now we want to share this. We want our students and parents to rediscover meaning in learning, just like we did.

 

It's very important to us that you know where we come from, so thank you for reading this.
 

We are are here to change education. Join us!

Education Diversified on the Imaginative use of Talents for Happiness

Our education heart behind the scenes.

Our curricula EDITH that ignited the EDITH Foundation, blends neuroscience applied to education, multiple intelligences and STEM.  

Our team of certified teachers is based in the United States, Canada and Mexico (service only in Spanish). 

We think of ourselves as an education research and design incubator, so we are experts in innovative curricular design.

We think of intelligence as light composed by a spectrum of different colors that unify to create enlightenment!  This diversified approach allows us to plan lessons thinking of topics from different angles. Our learning method brings real meaning to subjects, so our students can learn traditional objectives of traditional curricula through experiential and project based learning.

GIVING

BACK

Diversity in learning is everywhere in our school, and also in the way we structure collaboration.

We are here to help as well! A percentage of your tuition is destined to support children in developing economies, so children in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico or South Africa can access our platform, teachers and tools. In this way, we can guarantee diversity in our classroom by helping those in need. We are also transparent about this information by letting you know exactly how your contribution is helping.
