Meet the Inspiring Teacher Scholarship Recipient, Jamil Ahmed

We recently began the summer session of my new online courses. We announced a scholarship and were so moved by the personal statements and bios that we decided to award a few scholarships for the summer session. Below is the bio and an excerpt from the personal statement of Jamil Ahmed, a teacher from Bangladesh, who was the recipient of the Connected Educators: Harnessing the Power of Social Media for Professional Development course scholarship. I’m excited about his contributions and the perspectives he will share in our Google+ Community.

You can still register until July 12th for the summer session of any of the online accredited courses offered by Edtechnology Specialists and Andrews University.

Jamil Ahmed, a Teacher from Bangladesh

Personal Statement Excerpt: I am preparing to open my Digital School in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It will help me to get organized about every aspect of teaching specially including performance analyze, game-based learning and flipped learning, etc. In Bangladesh, there is huge population and a lot of talented young people but they don’t have the proper guidelines to move forward. So, it would be great if I could be able to learn from experts like you and implement that in Bangladesh to move forward the young generation with Digital Education.
