EdVisto CEO Joni AlWindi had the privilege to receive The Wing Award for ‘Unlocking Student Talent through Technology’ at the WING Awards Gala Ceremony at Grand Hotel in Stockholm on Friday, September 13.
The award, presented by Adobe, was motivated for “incredible work to merge technology and education reaching every child on an international level“, where in his continuous struggle, “Joni has shown persistent dedication and commitment in his mission to empower children through modern teaching“.
The WING Awards celebrate the “ingenuity of individuals and businesses striving to combat barriers faced by millions of girls accessing an education [recognising] excellent education initiatives and [placing] the spotlight on exceptional role-models and innovators who are an inspiration to our next generation“.
In his words, “I think it’s so important to, precisely following this title, unlock students’ talent through technology… …because we as adults cannot really teach kids that much, but we can unlock their talent by giving them the tools for them to express themselves… …let the kids tell their stories, through video, digital video, social media. They have the
technological skills. We just need to guide them when it comes to the pedagogy.” Joni AlWindi, CEO at EdVisto.
