Rethining online education
Megan is a generalist learner, innovator, and humanist thinker from Finland. Currently, she is working in online education and AI, advocating for a human-centered approach to demystify emerging technologies for those of us who don’t come from tech backgrounds. Megan is aware of the oversaturation of information and misinformation in our world today. Her personal way of approaching this status quo: Trying to cut through the noise and helping others do the same.
To her, TEDx injects life and fresh perspectives in a world full of pessimism and futility by giving people a credible platform to promote their ‘ideas worth spreading’. She strongly believes in the impact this format can have – especially as the things that can make the biggest difference, often start in the smallest places. Although Megan is aware of the world’s crushing problems at the moment, she thinks that if we dedicate ourselves to making small, mindful, intentional improvements in according to our own capacities every day, the world will become a better place.
“Stop and take a moment to be kind to yourself. Babysteps and intention are the answer to overwhelm and defeatism, and I try to remind myself of that every day.“
