Late Middle English: from Latin educat- ‘led out’, from the verb educare, related to educere ‘lead out’ (see educe). EDUCATE will also work with London’s accelerators who recruit some of the best tech start-ups from the UK and Europe and then for an intensive period of 12-20 weeks provide them with seed investment, intense mentoring, training, connections to customers and investors, opportunities to pilot their product with leading companies and a fast track to raising further investment.
The Education Foundation and EdTech UK’s work will contribute to the promotion of EDUCATE with its existing network, will bring its network of experienced mentors to directly support the SMEs and researchers on the programme, have its key staff directly support start-ups in the knowledge lab space, run networking and showcase events, run EdTech specific workshops and represent and share lessons learned from the project to policy and wider industry stakeholders.
Depending on the shortfall of their application, they will be signposted to either existing services within UCL or other business support providers in London as well as to the EDUCATE virtual space. Books are a valuable source of information, but there are ways to educate a child and have fun at the same time. The partnership between Higher Education and business that is embodied in EDUCATE will promote the economic and commercial exploitation of university research outputs enabling SMEs to leverage this research to support their product development process. The professor must learn where his students are coming from before he can successfully educate them in a given field.
As SMEs and research entrepreneurs progress within the EDUCATE physical space a range of services will be offered to them: product evaluation, testing and validation; accountancy and tax advice; grant writing, investor readiness support; dissemination and showcasing. Participants will also be invited to a celebration reception at the Teaching Commons where they will receive their EduCATE Certificate. It is helpful to begin with the definition and history of special education so that teachers can learn how these disorders and disabilities occur. EDUCATE is a collaboration between UCL, F6S, The Education Foundation and Nesta.
Through this collaboration EDUCATE will translate research investment into new and better Educational Technology, stimulate demand for educational products, enable researchers to commercialise their research and increase the R & D investment made by SMEs. So, it is good to be prepared, and have clear, concise reasoning for your decision to home educate the kids.
