ISTE 2017: Founded By World Renowned Speaker Mawi Asgedom, Mawi Learning Is Growing Tomorrow’s Leaders In Today’s Classrooms
Mawi Asgedom arrived in the United States as an Ethiopian refugee. Once he reached the U.S. the odds were stacked against him. He faced poverty, language barriers and cultural differences. You would think that for Asgedom, getting a high school diploma would be feat in itself, well Asgedom beat the odds and graduated from Harvard, where he gave the commencement address to 30,000 of his peers in 2001. He went on to write a best selling autobiography, Of Beetles and Angels.
Since then Asgedom has spoken to over a million students and educators. He’s written eight leadership books that are used in classrooms worldwide. He’s been featured on Oprah, NPR and in Essence Magazine. Alongside all of that he also created Mawi Learning.
“Mawi Learning codifies Mawi’s message of growth, resilience, and personal success in research-based blended and online courses for students and teachers. Mawi Learning’s courses inspire students and educators to capitalize on their potential by applying research-based strategies to instill powerful mindsets, encourage action, foster relationships, and build critical skills.” the company says on it’s website.
Mawi offers a variety of leadership courses for students as well as a super charged ELL progran at the middle, and high school level.
Through Mawi learning, middle and high school students will learn:
- Build the confidence and skills to succeed in middle school
- Create a Growth Mindset
- Manage their time, set goals, and get organized
- Create strong friendships based on mutual respect
- Use dozens of proven strategies for success
Mawi Learning bases their courses on fieldwork with over a million students worldwide. Their critical thinking and study skills course, available to high school students, gives them a proven blue print for academic success. They also offer a college and career readiness course to high school students that will help them pave the way to college acceptance, job preparation and financial literacy.
Mawi Learning’s high school Turbo Leadership Course transforms learning through a culture of leadership. With lessons drawn from Asgedom’s eight books on leadership and his personal experiences, Turbo Leadership will create a school-wide culture of student leadership.
They don’t stop with just students though. Mawi Learning offers a professional development course called Powerful Educator. The 17 lesson course was developed in conjunction with Dr. Carol Dweck’s Mindset Works. The course is built on a proven framework that trains staff to boost resilience, motivation and confidence in students.
