At Curious they believe in lifelong learning. Learning for its own sake. Learning that happens beyond classrooms, and not only in academic subjects (unless you count beer brewing, pipe soldering, and organic gardening as academic). Learning as a necessity of living.
At Curious they also believe great teachers are as valuable to society as great business leaders or academic thinkers. They wonder why there are hundreds of high-tech ways to share silly photos, and military-grade technology can help them find their friends at a bar, but teachers have few quality tools to help them succeed online.
They believe teachers are some of society’s greatest entrepreneurs and should be treated as such.
They also believe that videos of cats dancing the Macarena, and super-slo-mo exploding watermelons are really cool, but not the kind of online learning they’re talking about. And that Justin’s new band only reminds them a little bit of this. But that’s another story...
Mostly, they believe in being curious.
