Community with a strong sense of belonging
"When a community is just
like an awesome tribe"
Community members who choose to spend some of their spare time, often into the late hours, on rethinking who we always thought about education, learning, teaching and much more, are obviously driven by the idea, that there ARE other ways to get to live the life you desire -without having to go through a fixed curriculum for 10-12 years, then perhaps complete a higher-ed program, then get on-the-job-experience and THEN find your personal sweet spot that combines your interests and talents with the opportunity to earn a living.
The community teams celebrate also it's small victories and since only few of us ever met in-person, all of this has been happening entirely online since 2018. When Covid closed down the world, obviously everything moved online. Our teams continued their innovation work even when facing the personal challenges of lock-downs and the disruptions of our lives that came with that.
Founded in 2018
Personal frustrations with the school experience his own kids had, lead Lars Lin from Denmark to take on the challenge of creating the personalized support in life-long learning that would keep his own kids motivated to keep exploring and accomplishing what they themselves wanted -rather than what the Education system and it's 45 minute lesson "tyranny" in smelly class room dictated.
Immediately, many colleagues, personal friends and business contacts joined around the same challenges they all face, regardless of geography and cultural background. A community was born.

A few important attributes of Educatefor.Life
Peer-Reviews Rather Than Professor Grading
Crowds are not always super intelligent the way we all hope for. But in a global and diverse community, focused on building a much better future, you get to select the crowd that can boost your ideation or your implementation - and you get so many powerful perspectives you never thought possible.
Everyone Can Be Your Teacher
The person who helps you break down a challenging problem or an important subject, may not necessarily be based in your own school district. We felt it was time to quit the paradigm of school districts. And while we are at it, we prefer "Guide-on-the-Side" rather than "Sage-on-the-Stage". How about you?
From Location to Environment
Class rooms may work for you. When that's what you need, go ahead and book one. But often, you may find a more suitable environment for the activity you have chosen to focus on. A world of better environments.
We find them everywhere, and will invite you to come discover the powers you have in an inspiring, supporting environment. Just like we want it to be for our children.
