Do schools have to output mediocre robots or first class human beings? And: What kind of education do we need to solve the problems we're currently facing as society?

Nils Landolt is a primary school teacher and father of four children who describes himself as a highly inquisitive and seeks to explore a wide variety of fields, in order to create something new.

Traditional schooling did not nurture this natural curiosity and provide him with the necessary tools to tackle today’s challenges. While founding his own company at age 21, he decided to become a teacher and reinvent what it means to learn with children. After working in the public school system for a few years, he then took a position as innovation manager in a marketing company. He quickly realized that our economy requires a new set of skills that can’t be taught but rather developed in a new way of learning guidance that has finally become crucial. That’s why he started founding his own school, the LernHaus Sole, together with his wife Hanna Landolt and later the initiative. I am a highly curious person who seeks to connect all kinds of areas in order to create something new. That’s also why school didn’t really give me what I needed. After founding my own company at age 21 and walking out of Student Advisory Service with eight completely different brochures, I decided to become a teacher and reinvent what it means to learn with children. After working at public school for a few years, I started as innovation manager in a marketing company where I discovered that our economy needs a new set of competences that can’t be taught but rather developed in a new way of learning guidance that has finally become crucial. That’s why I started the initiative together with Markus Roos.
