Review for BIG FUN Education, Madison, CT, USA
Big Fun Education is a dream come true! I am an educator living in the UAE. Quite by chance, about a month ago, I found Big Fun Education on Google+ and things have been different since then! All at once, I ran into a team of extremely passionate, experienced, talented and creative individuals who surprisingly, were not sitting on their high horses in spite of their successful personal lives. Instead, they were very welcoming...almost as if , we had known one another for years and quickly accepted me into the community, supporting me in every possible way to make me feel comfortable. They are real people out there with a great mission and a genuine desire to make a difference to the world of literacy, globally. This organization is providing incredible opportunities to children and teachers all around the world to see, feel and live wonderful sessions where interaction between the children and superbly creative and talented people is possible with the use of the internet and the advantages of Google Hangouts on Air. Who knew education could be so much fun, so sociable! One of their initiatives, Reading Without Borders, has been able to cross all geographic and cultural borders and bring all the children in the world into one big classroom...how fantastic is that! The impact of this is surely self explanatory. How often do we get to meet an author without having to take immense trouble? Big Fun Education is making this a reality and children and their teachers are able to share space with their favourite authors, getting a glimpse of their lives and what goes on in their world of writing or illustrating. Moreover, children all across the world are getting the invaluable opportunity of being read to them by people from different parts of the world, who have chosen to do this only because they are people for whom caring for children makes a lot of sense. Big Fun Education has opened up another avenue of being able to add a different meaning to life, of being a global citizen and spreading literacy all across the world. Kudos to Big Fun Education!
