Interview with Darya Yegorina
What got you interested in using technology in education?
My passion is life time learning. I am always excited about all new ways of getting information. Today technology is the driver for may spheres in our lives (even if we have not noticed the transition form alarm clock to the one we use on our mobile phones). I strongly believe that technology is the enabler in education and its influence will definitely grow in the next decade.
Being a creative mind, I decided to bring my dreams to life for the kids by creating the new learning world: combining traditional teaching and learning with technology and making the learning process innovative and exciting. New generation needs to be taught the new way.
What advice would you give to parents or teachers wishing to be more innovative in the way they teach their children/students?
Thanks to technology and the way it changes the aspects of our lives so rapidly, I would recommend to keep an eye on new apps and tools for learning that are coming up. Personally, I research and follow new technological trends and check the benefits they can bring. With all new technology that comes to our lives every day, it is important to be objective and try what you feel can benefit your kid’s learning process. Thanks to technology, a personal approach to learning and teaching is possible!
What types of unique experiences have you had as a result of your profession?
Everything we do in life brings unique experiences. Talking about professional background I am a lucky person because I have experience in all kinds of business sizes from start-up to multinationals. I am particularly excited about entrepreneurship and strongly believe that this is the drive to the future progress if great ideas get exposure. Interesting enough, this helps to be more creative, learn how to focus on solutions, be brave to combine things that seems not to match, learn from others and be a great team player.
Who or what inspires you most?
I am inspired by people who start their own companies, by those who start from idea and come to results. It is all because I know how much it takes to get results and grow from idea, how many times you will hear “no” before you get to your first “yes”. Persistence and strong belief in what entrepreneurs do drives them to build a business and inspires me in people I meet in my life.
What are your biggest goals in your career currently?
My biggest goal is to deliver my passion for using technology in education around the world.
