Codeverse Virtual Guide/Instructor in Remote, Indiana
Imagine you are aboard a beautiful intergalactic spaceship, which is connected to, and part of a community of, millions of similar spaceships. This massive community is home to billions of families, each of them beautifully unique and precious. Your passion is to care for and encourage the growth and development of kids within this magnificent community.
These children live in a time where all information is universally available, and all repetitive tasks have been automated. Memorization and specific technical skills are no longer relevant or useful. You must ensure they learn a new and entirely differentiated set of skills and values. They must learn how to think, instead of what to think.
You must help develop their intellectual curiosity and build their confidence to express themselves creatively, test their ideas, and bring those ideas to life. You are their friend and their helper, and must show them how to be empathetic, so they may collaborate with others, and develop the strong meaningful relationships which make for a rich and fulfilling life.
