I’ve mentored 15+ learners on Full Stack technologies, as part of MCIT initiative of supplying inclusive network of study groups for Udacity’s Full Stack Web Developer Nanodegree. That’s part of a series of mentoring sessions across eight months. The technology learning initiative “Next Technology Leaders (NTL)” to build capacity of young calibers on the latest information, communications, and electronics technologies. The Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) leads executing the NTL Initiative through the Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center of the Information Technology Industry Development Agency. Capacity building is to be orchestrated through the establishment of integral, practical, high-quality learning ecosystem, centered on the learner and supported by a distinctive content prepared through the collaborative effort of top universities and leading companies, and is made available on globally leading MOOC platforms. The ecosystem is inclusive of a nationwide network of study group mentors that coaches learners and stimulate the learning process. A network of project reviewers also assess and improve the learning outcomes.
