- Company president Allan Jones has 40-plus years experience in the world of education
- Emaginos is dedicated to transforming public education, president says
- Brand-new platform is based on proven best practices but focuses on teaching students how to learn
Emaginos Inc. president Allan Jones was a featured guest on a recent episode of Stock2Me’s podcast (https://ibn.fm/PMMC1); Stock2Me is an essential source for the latest news and updates on market trends and movers in high-profile industry sectors. During the interview, Jones, a champion of educational change with more than four decades of educational background and expertise, discussed the company’s business model and noted that the innovative education-based company is focused on transforming K-12 education to provide customized education to every student.
“We’re a company that’s dedicated to transforming public education. We have this vision of unleashing America’s greatest natural resource — the minds of our children,” Jones said during the podcast. “A teachable moment occurs when the student wants to learn what the teacher wants to teach. Good teachers can recognize those and take advantage of them; great teachers can create them. And what we try to do is put a situation in place that all teachers can become great teachers. We’re focused on kids becoming good learners more than on the content that they learn.”
Teaching students how to be good learners is what sets Emaginos apart, says Jones, although there is much that is familiar with the Emaginos platform. “Even though it’s a brand-new system, it’s based on proven best practices,” he explains. “There’s nothing we’re doing that hasn’t been done before, it’s just the way we put it all together that makes it unique and powerful.”
For instance, Jones asked host Stuart Smith when was the last time he needed to find the upper or lower limits of a parabola or recite facts about the Battle of Hastings. Smith acknowledged he hadn’t used that information at all.
That’s true of 80% of what students typically learn in school, Jones said, noting that schools today focus on facts and figures and miss a key component: teaching students how to learn. “In our school, the emphasis is on how you learn stuff and how you use information,” he stated.
Jones used the example of a class of elementary school students, noting that the challenge is to ask students what they’re interested in and then turn those subjects into common core. “So if they’re interested in frogs, for example, talk about the biome, their habitat,” he explained. “And when you start talking about their habitat, you get into the ecology and you can get into pollution. . . you see where I’m going. And then there’s politics and business issues associated with clean water. And all of a sudden, you’re talking about — even if it’s at the elementary level — you’re introducing these ideas that later on they’ll come back and visit.
“You don’t tell them the answers,” he continued. “You show them how to find the answers. So if they say, we want to learn more about clean water stuff, well, let’s figure out how we learn about clean water. And you lead them through the process of finding the information they’re looking for and then using that information.”
Emaginos promotes a solution to America’s poorly performing K-12 public education system using existing facilities, existing teachers, existing administrators and implementable within existing budgets using existing proven best practices. The company is in the process a Reg A offering and offers a first-to-market, actionable plan that holds promise for the future.
