At a time when education is at a historic turning point, at Cisco, we want to celebrate excellence and focus on the amazing achievements of some of today’s brightest and most creative students and teachers.
Welcome to Cisco #FutureVoices - a platform that champions their voice. We want to give airtime to some of the most interesting future shaping projects in the world of education right now.
In the face of a global pandemic, students and teachers have found new ways of teaching and online distance learning through creative use of technology. Their approach was hybrid, using technology not to replace, but complement and fundamentally improve the education experience.
We call these students and teachers Future Voices, because we believe they have the power to change the future of education, making it more inclusive and accessible for all. At Cisco, education is in our DNA - we were born at university and since 1997 Cisco Networking Academy has transformed the lives of 12.7 million learners, educators and communities. It is our mission to celebrate Future Voices and give them a platform. It’s time to make their stories known to the world and let them be an inspiration for us all.
