The second edition of DUBAI VISION, schools’ sustainability contest organized by “Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding” (SMCCU) in partnership with the Ministry of Education of the UAE and with Architaly Green Energy DMCC, involved this year 50 public and private schools from across the UAE.

The contest has culminated on 24th of April with the Awards Ceremony held at the Historical House of SMCCU.

For the first time in the UAE, a schools’ contest facilitated public and private schools to join hands and cooperate for the creation of excellent works, sharing time and experiences learning from each other, upon the main topics of sustainability.

The cultural competition focused on the partnership between students of different nationalities with diverse cultural and religious backgrounds. During the competition, public and private schools were paired up to work together and deliver a joint project representing their shared vision of sustainability, particularly in the areas of solar energy, water conservation and green mobility.

“We were happy to be part of the Dubai Vision Competition as it is not only about science and technology but about connecting students of private and government schools. This exposed students to different nationalities, helping them become more open-minded and understand the real meaning of the word tolerance,” said Zainab Albaloushi, from the curriculum development unit at the Ministry of Education.

Architaly Green Energy DMCC was the main sponsor and provider of technical support to the schools. ” We started this contest in partnership with SMCCU to support schools to participate in sustainability programmes which we have designed in two ways: one is this cultural competition and the second is our DUBAI SOLAR SCHOOLS PROGRAMME ( where we provide free solar panels to schools in UAE to produce cleaner and cheaper electricity and also to inspire children to learn about renewable energy,” said David Provenzani – managing director of Architaly Green Energy DMCC.

Curious Mondo: Bringing a New Approach to ELearning to a “Curious World.”

Salt Lake City, Utah. March 06, 2017. Mother and daughter team Shahar and Nashlah Boyayan have been working with business owners and entrepreneurs for most of their lives. They know how important it is to keep current on what’s new in the world of business education. This is what prompted them to establish Curious Mondo, an e-learning company focusing on an interactive and informal way to bring knowledge to and increase skills of the adult viewer through live streaming.

These live streaming courses are interactive and at no cost. Experts in their fields of business, the arts, and technology present topics to the worldwide viewing audience. Viewers are motivated to interact throughout the course with their questions to the instructors through the Curious Mondo chat group or through social media on the Curiuos Mondo Facebook page.

“Knowledge can make a business grow and empower people to start a new journey in their lives”, said Shahar Boyayan, co-founder along with her daughter Nashlah of Curious Mondo. “How many of us would benefit from learning a new skill and turning it into a secondary income? This is a large part of the reason why we founded Curious Mondo, so that those viewing will gain information that is relevant to their specific situations, apply what they have learned, and begin to realize results right away.”

“We want people to have open doors to achieve their dream, to conquer new possibilities, and not have to struggle in the way we did. We believe Curious Mondo provides that gateway for people through this type of learning opportunity,” said Nashlah.

The Boyayans are firm believers that “learning is an adventure” and should be fun and interactive. They have recruited the best instructors in their fields on a wide array of topics to meet the demands of the “new world learner.” During these live events, participants are encouraged to ask questions and communicate their doubts that are addressed by the experts. At the end of every course completed by the viewer and where the activities are implemented, they will receive an electronic certificate of course completion.

Your College Concierge Expands in Washington, DC and Partners with the Alloy Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, DC and the College Success Foundation

Your College Concierge co-founder and CEO, Peter Ratzan, today announced new plans for the company’s growth through a new partnership with the Alloy Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and the College Success Foundation. Your College Concierge is a “virtual guidance office”, a technology-based platform that helps schools modernize and more efficiently provide personalized college guidance to each student.

MIAMI, FL – December 16, 2016 – Your College Concierge co-founder and CEO, Peter Ratzan, today announced new plans for the company’s growth in three areas, including the network of clients served, the range of services provided and through a new partnership with the Alloy Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and the College Success Foundation. Your College Concierge will continue expansion of its services and partner network, unveiling its digital software platform and working with BGCGW and the College Success Foundation to provide college guidance, application assistance and financial aid services for its Alloy ACHIEVERS program, a multi-faceted college planning program and scholarship opportunity offered by the Alloy Foundation. Said Ratzan, “We’re so excited to support these outstanding organizations as they help prepare DC-area students both for admission to college and for a successful and largely debt-free post-collegiate life.”

Your College Concierge was started as an integrated college planning practice in 2007. In 2015 its team of entrepreneurs, college advisors, financial aid experts and technologists set out to reimagine college guidance by asking, what would college preparation look like if it were personalized to the needs of today’s high school students?

Together they’re building a “virtual guidance office”, a technology-based platform that helps schools modernize and more efficiently provide personalized college guidance to each student. Your College Concierge empowers students to find, gain admission to – and AFFORD – the perfect college. Its mobile platform and app also give parents and educators an evaluative tool to measure their students’ progress, track engagement and report outcomes.

Pandit Wright, the former Executive Director of BGCGW and the current Alloy Foundation liaison explained, “They’ve taken the best of what’s existed for families in college planning until now, and have put it together in a new, simpler, less fragmented and far more accessible way.”

Designed in partnership with a former guidance counselor and financial aid experts, the tools encompass every facet of the college planning experience, from searching for colleges, applying and writing the college application essay to understanding how federal and institutional financial aid work alongside admissions and how to use both to lower the price of college. Today the platform is being developed and used for Alloy ACHIEVERS, a network of high school students in greater Washington, DC whose higher educational pursuits are being supported by the Alloy Foundation. In January, Your College Concierge will also open the platform to students from Xceed Preparatory Academy, a new college preparatory micro-school concept launching in the state of Florida in January.

About Your College Concierge

Your College Concierge is an interdisciplinary team of higher education experts, educators, technologists and entrepreneurs creating a platform of resources and digital tools that prepare students for college in our changing world. Their customized approach is able to adapt to the needs of students, families and the surrounding community; the larger network connects everyone together to enable a far greater impact in efforts to help children grow into thriving, debt-free adults.

Your College Concierge provides a bespoke college planning experience, tailored to the grade level, interests, budget and academic abilities of each child. The platform builds an individualized strategy for a student that helps them find the right college, figure out how they can afford it and make sure they have the tools they need to succeed when they get there. On the front end, students get help finding, getting into and paying for college. On the back end, parents, counselors and educators have an easy-to-use evaluative tool to measure student engagement and report outcomes.

How It Works

Partner organizations and their students use a virtual platform on digital devices to help personalize the college process. For example, a student can make a list of potential colleges, search with the custom College List Builder to find those that best fit their interests and budget, and store their favorites in a digital folder in their “eLocker”. What they store will be visible for their parents and their guidance mentor for evaluation. As a partner, you can track your students as individuals and gauge the student’s progress. Your College Concierge is data-driven, working side-by-side with partners to customize the platform for students, parents and counselors as they discover what works best.
