With the world changing at a rapid pace, new sets of questions call for new ways of solving problems. The invention of the portable computer and the phone in your lifetime revolutionized the way we communicate, however, these inventions became the default in your child’s lives in an instant. For example, it’s also almost taken for granted the way you can just Google something online for answers when you had to sift through library books or encyclopedias back in the day. With information as well as keeping up to date with others at your fingertips, the way your child’s generation can access information brings about curiosity at convenience. With an array of tools already at our disposal, understanding the potential areas of growth will prove beneficial to expanding your child’s horizons and contributing to make meaningful work. Now, your child’s generation’s career drives will almost certainly involve making an impact as Gen Zs are truth-seekers and more conscious about the values behind companies. …
My name is Michele and I’m the new Head of Education at CoCoon Foundation. I joined CF in September but it feels like it’s been much longer than that because of all the exciting new projects and learning that’s happened in the past month and a half! CF is a friendly and energetic place to work; our team is motivated and self-driven and they surprise and inspire me with their creative ideas and ability to get things done. Here are a few photo highlights from my past few weeks here:
If your child’s birthday sits after the year 1996, chances are that they find it hard to recall life before a smartphone. Gen Zs are known as the multitaskers, the ‘digital natives’. While technology may appear to be second nature to them, Gen Zs certainly faces a unique set of challenges when it comes to crafting their career after education. Often, these are challenges that involve aspects they never even encountered in their younger years. With new innovations propping up as they move through their career, how can you, as a parent guide Gen Zs prepare themselves early?
Technology rendering us…

迷思 1: 你需要大量金錢？
在大多數行業中，如果你的想法能解決一個真正的問題，你不需要龐大的投資就可以起步。有一些初創公司在沒有早期融資的情況下就獲得成功 — Shopify的創始人在創建售賣滑雪用品的電子商務網站時，尋找網上購物的解決方案。由於找不到，他們決定自己動手，在當時火熱的ROR框架上構建一個的解決方案。兩位創始人用他們產生的收入經營了整整六年。最終從投資者 …
The idea of entrepreneurship could be daunting to younger generations who don’t have exposure to the business world. However, in a world where industries and jobs unheard of now could prop up decade after decade, it is becoming increasingly important for your child to equip a set of skills that allows them to adapt to the future challenges and the future job market.
The words “entrepreneurship” and “education” might not look like the most obvious pairing next to each other. We associate entrepreneurship as a dynamic activity — risk-taking that leads to unguaranteed outcomes in the commercial world that could lead to unexpected returns. While traditionally, we associate education as a stable, linear progression through institutions where we develop hard skills, or “accumulate knowledge” to grow and acquire a world view. Putting the two together, entrepreneurship education is integrating steady personal growth within a fast-paced environment by introducing a dextrous mindset into education. Entrepreneurship education is particularly important for our youth because it is an opportunity for people to develop relevant skill sets by transforming ideas into value for others. In order to keep up with the fast-changing technological landscape, an increasing number of organisations around the world are encouraging employees to “think more like entrepreneurs” and less like the stereotypical employee — not only just to ensure that they are a fit for a particular organisation, but also prepared for future challenges that the world might face. …
Hey there! I’m Hannah :) Let me first share a bit about myself with you. Ever since I remember, I was always interested in art. I would spend most of my time coloring, doodling, and imagining. Following this path, I ended up going to an art school for college- Savannah College of Art and Design. I went in undecided with my major but ended up picking Industrial Design.
Many of their majors interested me but I picked Industrial Design because there was a graduate there that created a portable water filter that was made for people that couldn’t get access to clean water. …
