Trends unfolding on Curašao, attend this week workshop on on Habit creation and Willpower and this week tips

Posted on April 23, 2018 at 2:20 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (23rd till 29th of April) we will discuss our experiences in the past year and the two trends we see unfolding on Curaçao and how this relates to the approach of the Center of Curriculum Redesign (CCR) is advocating. CCR answers the question what should students learn for the 21st century in the age of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics; we will invite you to our upcoming next Soulgarden, Uplifting and Mensing’s Caminada workshop on the 26th of April at Chit Chat on “Habit creation and Willpower” and we will end this blog with this week’s personal coaching tips as video links. Every day we will upload one on these video’s on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.


Two trends we are seeing
As we “connect dots and align efforts” and as we gain more experiences in working with individual clients and/or groups and organizations in Curaçao, we are identifying their needs and enabling our clients how to best deal with their everyday challenges. We have noticed two trends:
First of all, our clients have issues with people not really accepting 100 % responsibility of their choices; people having challenges that could easily be solved if they were more skilled in applying Emotional Intelligence skills and more skilled in handling Crucial Conversations. (When there are high stakes, difference of opinions and emotions can run high). These vital behaviors are:

1. Accepting 100 % responsibility over one’s choices;
2. Higher Emotional Intelligence and
3. Greater mastery on handling Crucial Conversations in different walks of life, organizations, families and in our educational systems on Curaçao.

As mentioned before in this blog we firmly belief that if we would address these three vital behaviors and most of us would gain mastery over them on Curaçao, we would have a much improved society able to constructively solved our day-to-day challenges in life.



The second trend we are taking notice off is, new forms of fluid collaborations among networks creating value. By anticipating how disruptive changes will disrupt some of our existing structures, we can be better prepared to build new structures. Look at what Jan Rotmans has to say about this. “We are in a change of eras comparable to the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century”. Rotmans believes that: “We are moving towards a Society 3.0: decentralised, bottom-up, flexible and with small networks instead of a society dominated by bureaucracy and large companies”. Having said that, we are seeing new forms of network collaborations, creating value for the society increasing rapidly also on Curaçao. We ourselves are actively creating these forms of collaborations creating value. For more on Rotmans: go to our blog on the 9th of April 2018.


How does this relate to the approach of the Center of Curriculum Redesign? CCR answers the question what should students learn for the 21st century in the age of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, etc.. They are advocates of 4 dimensional education, but where the first pillar Knowledge in a certain way needs to be slimmed and some new knowledge added in an educational system already overloaded with curriculum. They are at the same time big advocates of the other 3 pillars that need to added. Like the 4 C’s skills training (2nd pillar), Character training (3rd pillar) and Meta Cognition (4th pillar). This could be achieved by freeing up time by offering less Knowledge curriculum. For more go to curriculumredesign.org/.

Regarding Skills: “How to use what we know?” They mention these 4 C’s: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration. By deepening our knowledge in effective and crucial communication (one of the three vital behaviors) and by applying techniques to enable more creativity and the ability to express ourselves, 3 of the 4 these elements can be covered.

Regarding Character: “How we behave and engage in the world” They mention: Mindfulness, Resilience, Courage, Curiosity, Ethics and Leadership. By applying techniques this can strengthen resilience, courage and curiosity.

Meta learning: How we reflect and adapt. Meta cognition and Growth mindset.

We will closely increase our understanding of the needs of our clients and as core group Share2Uplift offer them localized, customized services that stick related to the Skills, Character and Meta-learning.

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society. As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of CCR to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.
We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.
As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

Programs of Bos di Hubentut, this week Master Your mind Book Session, upcoming workshop and this week tips

Posted on April 15, 2018 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (16th – 22nd of April) we will expand a little more on 2 other programs of Bos di Hubentut that is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform session this coming Thursday the 19th of April; we will invite you to our upcoming workshop Top Habits for Lasting change on the 26th of April, presented by Soulgarden, Uplifting in collaboration with Mensing’s Caminada, on Habits creation and Willpower, we will commend the talented young singers that participated at the E-concert on the 14th of April organized by E-Awards Foundation and we will end in with some new video links with personal coaching tips on accepting 100 % responsibility over one’s life by choosing not to blame, complain and having excuses. Every day we will upload one of these video links on our Share2Uplift Facebook-page.

Bos di Hubentut celebrating their 25th anniversary
Bos di Hubentut is celebrating their 25th anniversary under the dynamic leadership of Sheila Albertoe. In our blog on the 2nd of March we paid attention on the inauguration of 21 members of the youth parliament as part of the Hoben Goberna project under the Bos di Hubentut umbrella. This week we will expand on two other projects, namely Brigada di Seguridat i Formashon and Kibrando e Gritonan Silensioso.

Brigada di Seguridat i Formashon
According to Rachel Hawker spokes-person of Bos di Hubentut, Brigada di Seguridat started in October 2004. This after the tragic death of a youngster on the 12th of April of that year. The goal of Brigada di Seguridat is to improve the safety of children and youngsters during big activities like Carnaval, Sehu or any other celebrations. Over the last 14 years of their existence Brigada di Seguridat over 2800 youngsters between 12 till 25 years old has participated in the programs Brigada offers. These youngsters are recruited from all walks of life and they usually approach Brigada di Seguridat themselves. After they have been through a screening process they are usually allowed to participate. This year they are planning a triathlon, camps and there will be a special event soon where some participants will be celebrating a promotion to a higher rank, there will the formal acceptance of some new members and some leaders will get their certificate of the leadership course they followed.

According to Rachel the interest for participating in Brigada di Seguridat is growing
They attract youth from all walks of life, especially because they are interested in the non-conventional physical training methods that “Brigada” offers to the participants. Because of the type of physical and skills training they go through, their attitudes changes; their self confidence increases; they become more willing to accept responsibilities; they learn to serve without expecting anything back; basically they become better in their personal leadership skills and they are enabled to become responsible citizens in our society.

For more information on Brigada di Seguridat i Formashon go to:

Kribando e Gritonan di Silensioso
Another project of Bos di Hubentut is Kribando e Gritonan di Silensioso. This project focuses on addressing domestic and relational violence, especially among children and our youth, be it physical violence or sexual abuse. This week as part of another project of “Kribando e Gritonan di Silensioso” founder and director Debbie Stevens from Action Breaks Silence - Creating Safer Communities visited Curaçao. Having herself survived a rape at 11 years of age, and driven by her belief that all women and teenage girls should be empowered and know how to defend themselves, Debi Steven has built her twenty-five year career on empowering women and girls by teaching personal safety workshops to individuals, schools, universities and many blue chip companies and organizations. In July 2013, she founded Action Breaks Silence to offer her training FREE of charge to women and girls at risk of sexual or gender-based violence in South Asia and Africa. Action Breaks Silence is an educational charity established to create a world where women and girls can live their lives free from fear of gender-based violence. To try and break the cycle of violence, Action Breaks Silence offers two educational programs: the Empowerment through Self-Defence Program for women and girls; and the Hero Empathy Program for boys, which challenges gender stereotyping and builds feelings of empathy and respect towards women and girls. During her stay she trained girls about 2000 girls on self defense techniques as part of their belief that girls need to become more empowered. Look at what she has to say about the philosophy behind their approach.

Boys will not be excluded
According to Rachel they just contacted Action Breaks Silence via internet and they immediately reacted and were willing to offer this training for free on Curaçao. In November they will come back and offer the training meant for boys, the Hero Empathy Program for boys, which challenges gender stereotyping and builds feelings of empathy and respect towards women and girls by Action Breaks Silence.
We commend Bos di Hubentut on their relentless efforts during these 25 years to enable our youth through the different programs that they offer, that is un-doubtfully having an ever increasing positive impact in our society.

E-concert organized by E-Awards Foundation enabling some young talents

On the 14th of April E-Awards organized the so called Curaçao E-concert with lots some young talents for different schools. 

These talents,according to Jessica Colastica of E-Awards Foundation, were all very much into singing since they were a child according to their mothers. By offering them a podium and a training of 2 weeks, these 18 talented singers were able to sing and perform in front of a big audience and this most have been a unforgettable experience for these youth. Some were very shy when they came to their first training, but very little of that was visible when they performed in the parking lot of Sambil from 7 till 11 pm.

This E-Concert was also part of a fundraising effort to collect enough funds to finance the upgrade of music classrooms on schools, to enable even more students to learn and practice music. We commend E-Awards for their efforts to enable youngsters to discover and develop their talents and by doing that improve their self-confidence. We will continue to support E-Awards where ever and whenever possible with the great work they are doing for our youth.

Transformative changes, our upcoming events and this week tips

Posted on April 9, 2018 at 3:05 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (9th – 15th of April) we will expand on some ideas of Prof Jan Rotmans and what he calls an era of “Transformative changes”; we will invite you to our next upcoming Master Your Mind-Platform session on the 19th April;we will invite to our next workshop offered by Soulgarden, Uplifting and Mensing’s Caminada on the 26th of April and we will end with some personal coaching tips regarding accepting responsibility over one’s life by choosing not to BLAME; to COMPLAIN and to have NO-EXCUSES. Every day in the week we will upload one video every single day on our Share2Uplift Facebook page.


Transformative changes

"We don’t live in an era of changes, we are living in a changing era." –  Professor Jan Rotmans.
For an interview in Dutch of Rotmans, go to “Tegenlicht Talk: Jan Rotmans – YouTube.
Transition management thinker Prof Jan Rotmans argues, that there must be a radical shakeup of existing institutions and governing structures if we are to deal with the shared, complex challenges emerging in social, economic, energy and environmental realms. There is no blueprint, there is no fixed solution, but you need to invest a lot in what I call “radical innovation”. Rotmans pioneered in what is now known as Sustainability Transitions and founded the Dutch Institue for Transitions (DRIFT) at the Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam. He led several large national and European projects and authored over 250 publications, amongst which 20 books. Rotmans: “We are in a change of eras comparable to the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century”. He believes that we are moving towards a Society 3.0: decentralised, bottom-up, flexible and with small networks instead of a society dominated by bureaucracy and large companies. He is the author of the book “Eye of a hurricane”.

For more go to: Sustainability: Jan Rotmans at TEDxMaastricht - YouTube on Transformative change, a change of era meaning multiple changes are taking in multiple parts of our society. www.youtube.com/watch?v=9furIv2jg50
Go to this other link on: “Managing transition: How do we prepare for complex social and environmental change?” | Up Close 

Finally Go also to this link for some practical tips for universities and students: How to Cope with the Age of Transition | Current | Career Services | University of Groningen. Rotmans answers these 2 questions:

1.How should universities deal with these coming transformational changes:
“Universities need to evolve to the life-long study facilities demanded in the future. One’s education will consist of rotational years of working and learning, instead of the current system of a couple of years of education first and then a life long working. Furthermore, an interdisciplinary approach will be more and more in demand. Complex societal issues require a solid knowledge of diverse disciplines. We already see this happening in study programs for excellent students, the so called ‘honors programs’. A group of academics in Amsterdam has started an initiative I’m also involved in, similar to honors programs but open to all students; it’s called the Bildung Academie. A place where you get an interdisciplinary education, but also learn how develop yourself and manifest your knowledge. Universities should strive for this kind of education to be accessible to all students in order to face this society in transition”.

2. Do you have any tips for students to prepare themselves for the changing labor market? “First and foremost, do not be afraid. Fear is your worst advisor. A new golden age is up ahead, a new economy with lots of opportunities. Besides that, don’t focus on your CV as much, just be yourself. Authenticity, passion, originality, being able to work in a team, communication, that’s what you really need to invest time in. It’s more important who you are, than what you’ve done. Everyone has got the same CV nowadays. I look right through it. We’re living in a time where individuals can make a difference. Think about Boyan Slat, a Dutch student who thought ‘hey, let’s develop a device to handle the plastic soup in the ocean’, look at how far he’s come. Possibilities are endless, embrace them”.

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the share2uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

Whole School concept, upcoming events and personal coaching tips

Posted on April 2, 2018 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog we will expand on the so-called Whole School concept in education; we will invite you for our next Master Your Mind-platform session on the 19th of April; we will invite to our next workshop offered by Soulgarden, Uplifting and Mensing’s Caminada on the 26th of April and we will end with some personal coaching tips regarding accepting responsibility over one’s life by choosing to have no-excuses. Every day in the week we will upload one video every single day on our Facebook page of Share2Uplift.


The whole school approach
As we are promoting 21st century mindsets and education on Curaçao, we thought it be relevant to expand in this week’s blog on the Whole School approach, as apparently this is an approach that is considered to be implemented as a pilot-project in Curaçao.
But what is this Whole School approach all about?

We have done some research and here are some of the insights we got from googling the internet on this concept:
“A whole school approach is cohesive, collective and collaborative action in and by a school community that has been strategically constructed to improve student learning, behavour and wellbeing, and the conditions that support these.

Source:https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=whole+school+approach+definition&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjiyrv99ZnaAhUiw1kKHQKQCcUQ1QIInQEoAA&biw=1244&bih=788

A second source says: “Research shows that multi-component whole-school initiatives involving all the school community are more likely to reduce bullying behavior than single-component programs, such as those involving only classroom curriculum. A whole-school approach recognizes that all aspects of the school community can impact upon students’ health and wellbeing, and that learning and wellbeing are inextricably linked. Given that young people spend much of their first 17 years in a school environment, school is not only the focal point of children’s academic development, but also their social and emotional development, since it is where they make friends and develop healthy relationships. Friendly Schools recognises the importance of a whole-school approach and is organized to provide support to schools, not only in terms of formal classroom teaching and learning, but throughout all aspects of the whole-school environment. To achieve sustainable behavior change that is integrated, holistic and strategic, it is necessary to implement a whole-school approach rather than focus only on individual behavior. Source: http://friendlyschools.com.au/fsp/information/whole-school-approach-info/


A third and last source says:
“Whole Education is a dynamic partnership of schools and organizations committed to redefining today’s educational offering. They believe that all children deserve an engaging and rounded education that supports academic achievement, but also develops the skills, knowledge and qualities needed to flourish in life, learning and work. Whole Education facilitates shared learning and collaboration between innovative schools; exposes teachers to world-class thinking and approaches; and supports effective professional development, enabling its member schools to move beyond delivering the national curriculum to building a stronger foundation for learning – a ‘whole education’. Their mission is:

• To help children and young people to develop a range of skills, qualities and knowledge they will need to succeed and thrive in life, learning and work;
• To help to make learning more relevant and engaging, with young people taking ownership of their own learning;
• To support learning across various settings (online, outside, at home, through volunteering and work) while engaging the wider community”.
Source: http://www.wholeeducation.org/


In which ever way we look at these three sources explaining what the whole school is all about, we see alignment with 21st century education requirements as stated by the Center for Curriculum Re-design that emphasizes: knowledge, character traits, skills and meta-cognition/growth mindset as pillars for the education of the 21st century. The moment we know more on how the whole school is being implemented we will report on this. For know we would like to express our total support for any program aimed at implementing this whole school concept in our schools.

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

So in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.


Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.
We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

Attend this week workshop, E-Awards programs, MYM platform in April and Personal Coaching Tips

Posted on March 26, 2018 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (26th of March – 1st of April) we will expand on E-Awards foundation new programs for the coming 5 years; we will invite you to the workshop “Top habits for lasting success” on the 27th of March in collaboration between Soulgarden, Uplifting and Mensing's Caminda; we will invite you to our Master Your Mind-platform session on the 19th of April and we will end with some personal coaching tips regarding accepting responsibility over one’s life by choosing to be PRO-ACTIVE. Every day in the week we will upload one video every single day on our Facebook page of Share2Uplift.


E-awards entering a next 5 year’s cycle

On the 21st of March in Sambil E-Awards Foundation directed by Jessica Colastica presented the highlights of their next 5 year’s program. This event was also attended by the Minister of Education Mrs. Marilyn Alcalá-Wallé.

The E-Awards foundation started 5 years ago after Nazira Colastica (daughter of Jessica) went from the best student at VSBO to the best student of HAVO to finally ending up in VWO and received a KAP-award. This triggered Nazira to start the foundation with her younger brother, explicitly aimed to pay tribute to those whom have excelled in their performances at school. During these past 5 years the E-Awards foundation have offered tribute to youth from different ages, honoring them for their school results and good behavior. As Nazira had experienced herself this increases their self-worth greatly. It even inspires them to do even better and raise their ambition levels.

Jessica: “We have done some research in the past and it was clear that contrary to mainstream thinking some years ago, most of our youth were doing OK and some even good to excellent. We were convinced that we were not confronted with a lost youth, that was totally out of control. We than decided to emphasize the positive side of our youth and with great success. The event that had the most impact in the past 5 years was the awards we gave to students from different ages and school levels, but we also offered recognition to teachers, parents, secretaries and what have you more. Imagine what the attendance of great number of family members does to a youth when he/she gets an award." E-Awards has also consciously worked on prevention and improved motivation among students, so that the youth could be enabled, to take better and wiser decisions.

But after 5 years there is a changed in focus. They will now also be focusing more on the parents of the students aimed at getting them more involved into the school activities of their children.
During the presentation at Sambil, three projects were introduced:
1. “Kada minut ta konta” for the primary school level;
2. “Den Nos dos” for the secondary school level;
3. “ Maestria Innovativo” aimed at teaching students to not only learn what they need to learn, but it is aimed at triggering them to innovate and increase the number of possibilities to look at things. Some of this new curriculum (with 21st century educational elements) has already been introduced on a trial basis to schools with very promising results, as it appears to change the way the teacher looks at and approaches students.


Another part of their focus in the coming years will be to enable students, that have the talent and are interested in music, to develop and practice this interest. Jessica: “Ultimately we will try to enable this at different schools to make it ultimately possible to have a philharmonic orchestra of students form different schools. I firmly belief that if we can get enough parents involved we could, by first taking small steps, collect enough funds to physically improve the music, sports and study class room facilities at schools. Improved class rooms can inspire the students to do even better in music, sports and their learning abilities”.

Jessica also shared with us, that the collaboration of schoolteachers and the school boards up to now have been excellent and she is very grateful for this. She also is grateful for the number of volunteer teachers, parents and students from our University, that give a hand in helping the E-Awards foundation reach and amplify their goals. Jessica on her funding: “We have had some very loyal sponsors that had helped us from the beginning till this moment. But we could still use some more sponsors to reach our goals for the coming 5 years”. For more information you can contact Jessica at [email protected] or go to their Facebook.com/E-Awards Fundation page. As core group of Share2Uplift we totally support E-Awards and will when possible continue to connect and align efforts.

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society. As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of CCR to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.
We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.
As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

GreenKidz moves on; attend the workshop at Mensings Caminada, Master Your Mind platform and this week tips

Posted on March 19, 2018 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (19th – 25th of March) we will give you an update of GreenKidz movement based on one of their latest activities at LOFO; we will invite you to a workshop on the 27th of March presented by Uplifting, Soul Garden and Mensing’s Caminada; we will express our gratitude to the 19 attendees at our last Master Your Mind-platform session on the 15th and invite you for our next session on the 19th of April and we will end with some personal coaching tips regarding accepting responsibility over one’s life. Every day in the week we will upload one of these video-links via our Share2Uplift Facebook page.

Update on the Greenkidz movement
Maya Mathias is a writer and teacher. With Ivonne Zegveld, a professional designer, they wanted to make a difference and use their talents to inspire the youth and the teachers and help change the mindset of generations. In 2015 they founded ‘GeenKidz’, a program that inspires children in the primary and secondary schools of Curaçao, through educational activities and learning materials, to take better care of their environment.

GreenKidz started this year with a very special event: Three first-year students of the Teachers Training for Elementary Education “Leerkrachten van het funderend onderwijs (LOFO)” received the 1st GreenTeachers Caribbean Award.

The award was presented to Saviani Kartowidjojo, Judyrey Franken and Gilianny Martina (picture below). They won the award for the best instructional film in Papiamentu about the concepts: “Reduce. Reuse& Recycle” which they made for GreenKidz free environmental education in Curaçao.
See the winning video.
This practical assignment was part of the broader Green­Kidz LOFO project module: “Man, Nature and Technology”. Maya: “We target students from primary and secondary schools, but wanted to reach the new generation of teachers as well to be really sustainable. So we joined forces with the University of Curaçao to develop an innovative program for teachers in training.

We introduced these young teachers to many local environmental organizations, and our GreenKidz program asked them to enrich our training materials with short videos explaining the term “Reduce. Reuse & Recycle” to young children and we were amazed how talented these new generation teachers were. We’ve started sharing the videos on Facebook.com/ greenkidzcuracao and will use these videos in our Greenkidz schools.”


Talking about 21st century education
In the LOFO project, Maya worked with Mieke Hutshorn whom is specialized in 21st century teaching methods. We asked Maya to share one or more useful lessons learned from working with Mieke? Maya is very enthusiastic: ”I would say; visit her class room, see how she teaches. I was blown away and I am a great fan of hers. My own son had her as a teacher for 2 years and I saw the impact. How he grew and flourished and started to think so creatively and deeply about the world around him. She uses lots of modern education concepts like: whole brain training, thinking acting and sharing, mirroring and pairing up and lots of experimenting and energy and movement in the class. She is much more about offering children stimulating and confronting learning experiences than teaching them in a traditional classical way.”

The progress made since 2015 till now
Maya is very happy with the progress of GreenKidz and the activities: “In the meanwhile our team has grown to 40 active team members and we have reached thousands of children and about 35 primary and secondary schools with our program.” The goals of GreenKidz for the long and midterm is to offer every child in Curaçao free and modern and inspiring environmental education. Maya: “Schools are very enthusiastic about what we do and how we do it. Every school we visit we offer instruction workshops for the teachers to stimulate them to use our educational materials as they see fit and to share how we work using lots of interactive and collaborative teaching techniques. If we had the funds, we could reach every school on the island within two years. And we are working hard on that.” In this context it is important to know that there are 50 primary and 23 secondary schools on Curaçao and they have reached 35 which is about 50 %.


Future plans

Right now Maya and Ivonne are working on a schoolbook ‘Limpi Korsou’ with lots of colorful drawings and tips and a bundle of letters, written by students (among them three on the picture) to our Prime Minister and his team of ministers on environmental problems and solutions. Maya would like to spread their wings with their program to more island in the Dutch Caribbean. Also they see possibilities to develop multilingual education programs for governments, foundations and company on many more subject concerning the environment, health, nature and safety for example climate change, green energy, zika, the circular economy.

Connecting dots and aligning efforts
Maya: “We believe in innovation, teamwork and collaboration. We want everybody to feel welcome and add value to our cause ‘Changing the mindset of generations’. Many organizations are passionate about changing Curaçao for the better and I think we should join forces wherever we can. So indeed inviting others to join and sharing experiences is what we actively seek to do.

The core group of Share2Uplift is in total alignment with the GreenKkidz movement as an excellent example of 21st century teaching methods and content, but also an example on how to connect dots and align efforts. Visit http://greenkidz.org/ for more information.

Steps how to Flip the curriculum; This week Master Your Mind-platform session and Coaching Tips

Posted on March 12, 2018 at 3:45 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (12th - 18th of March) we will expand on what steps Charles Fadel of the Center of Curriculum Redesign (CCR) suggests one can take to “flip the curriculum”; we will share a link of their latest (February 2017) updated Framework of the CCR; we will invite you to our upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session on the 15th of March and we will end with some personal coaching tips regarding accepting responsibility over one’s life. Every day in the week we will upload one of these video-links via our Share2uplift Facebook page.

What critical steps need to be taken to ensure we shape education to combat what is called “jobsolescence”?
In our blog of the 5th of March we quoted Charles Fadel, the founder of the Center for Curriculum Redesign in Boston and the author of Four-Dimensional Education: The Competencies Learners Need to Succeed (Center for Curriculum Redesign, 2015). Vol. 37, Issue 15, Pages 22-23.


Fadel explains that “Given the rapid growth in automation, it’s clearly essential that we prepare young people for the expected new jobs now. The role of education is to keep up with the automation advances and equipping people with the competencies they must have to make a living. A higher level of overall expertise is needed to be able to survive in this new environment, as it became the norm during the Industrial Revolution – the Digital Revolution is placing an even greater pressure on all of us. People need to be versatile and adaptable to their morphing environments, and to be “upskilled.”

This is similar to what was implemented for the Industrial Revolution, but with the rapid growth of automation, this process needs to be implemented significantly faster. In addition, the goals of education have to tackle three main points.

1. The first is relevance, for motivation and a real-world applicability.
2. The second is versatility, for robustness in the face of relentless change.
3. The final point is the transfer for actionability across novel situations. Transfer is critical because it is the ability to use one’s learning from whenever it was acquired and use it for a completely different context.


So in the same way we talk about “flipping the classroom”, we must talk about “flipping the curriculum”.

Traditional education has focused on information and data, but expertise and transfer are of much greater importance. These goals apply to schools, higher education, as well as lifelong learning/workforce development”. Go to: Interview with C. M. Rubin.

Fadel says: “To ensure that we shape education for the future that we desire, some changes need to be made by taking the following steps:

• to college entrance requirements that presently focus on efficient sorting;
• to assessments that measure the narrow traditional disciplinary goals of partially antiquated knowledge;
• to politics/policies that shrink away from controversy - we need courageous cathedral builders!
• We also need to address traditional experts’ biases clinging to their narrow domains, parents’ old personal experiences biasing their views, and teachers’ and administrators’ lack of training and leadership, respectively.

• We will also need to make concerted collaborative efforts among the education, business and government sectors to react to the emerging jobs.
• And as to forecasting new occupations, despite the uncertainty with respect to making such determinations, we must do our best to identify what appears to be likely, given the trends that are clear to us now”.

In a recent post on the Facebook page of CCR, Charles Fadel announced an update of their framework. For more go to “Knowledge for the Age of Artificial Intelligence” – CCR publishes landmark report and Knowledge framework | Center for Curriculum Redesign.

CCR has been working on the impact of AI – and that of many other global factors – and the consequences for Education, for a decade. This work had led in 2016 to the publication of its recommendations for a Four-Dimensional Education framework (“4D”described in its book. After 18 months of further research, CCR offered in February 2018 its expanded Knowledge framework (+ appendix), describing how to rethink content in the age of algorithms (from search to A.I.) to build:
• Relevance and personalization (for learner motivation);
• Versatility (robustness to future uncertainties);
• Transfer (actionability in real-world situations, leading to “flipping the curriculum“.

As we mentioned in our earlier posts, it’s necessary that this thinking regarding our educational system also find their ways in the educational system Curaçao. We as core group of Share2Uplift will try to enable these changes after reflecting on how to transfer these concepts into our local situation.


The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018

As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society. As share2uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of CCR to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.
We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

Insight Center for Curriculum Redesign, new members Hˇben Goberna, next Master Your Mind Platform session and this week tips

Posted on March 5, 2018 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (5th – 11th of March) we will expand on the work the Center for Curriculum Redesign is doing and share some views of Charles Fadel the founder of CCR, including the need for “flipping the curriculum”; we will congratulate the newly appointed 21 members of the new youth parliament Hóben Goberná on the 2nd of March; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind Platform session on the 15th of March and we will end with some personal coaching tips around accepting 100 % responsibility with “No Excuses”. We will upload one video, every day this coming week on our Share2Uplift Facebook Page.

The need to adapt to 21st century mindsets
All around us we are witnessing disruptive automation that is changing lives and taking away the jobs many have relied on to make a living. According to a recent report by PwC, within 15 years, artificial intelligence will take over 38% of U.S. jobs.


But will this trend continue even further, and to what extent does AI pose a threat to most of our jobs? The Global Search for Education: “Jobsolescence” – Does Charles Fadel Have the Answers? www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/the-global-search-for-education-jobsolescence-does_us_5945af88e4b0d188d027ff23


Charles Fadel says ”yes, but…”. Fadel is the founder of the Center for Curriculum Redesign, which has been producing new knowledge maps that redesign knowledge standards from the ground up. The Digital Revolution will force many jobs to become obsolete. However, all is not lost. Fadel believes new and higher paying occupations will develop as a result of automation; what we must do now is reform education to ensure our kids don’t get left behind. J. Hawksworth, PwC’s chief economist, agrees, stating “Knowledge will be a commodity so we need to shift our thinking on how we skill and upskill future generations.”. Dr. Carl Frey, one of the most widely cited scholars in the field of workforce automation and industrial renewal from the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford, also confirms, “Social and creative skills are most difficult to automate. Those are the ones that most workers will have to acquire.”

The first step? Changing perspectives. We all have personal biases, however, Fadel claims parents and educators must acknowledge and reform their dated opinions so they do not interfere with preparing the younger generation for their AI futures. “An estimate of 9% to 50% of the labor forces of developed countries are susceptible to automation in the coming decades.” — Charles Fadel


What kind of job skills can we expect to see replaced by automation?

There are four different job types:
• the first being routine impersonal work, such as basic accounting, call center operators, and airline help desks. These jobs are often offshored and are moving towards further automation.
• The second job type is non-routine impersonal work. These jobs include X-Ray interpretation and pathologists, legal discovery, and document editors. These jobs are becoming increasingly offshored even though they are harder to automate.
• The third is routine personal work, such as taxi drivers and cleaning services. These jobs remain onshore but are becoming increasingly automated.
• The last job type is non-routine personal work. These jobs include surgeons, CEOs, and teachers. These types of jobs will most likely remain onshore for a long time, and are also harder to automate.

“The Canadian Scholarship Trust has attempted to predict various new positions for the coming decades, including robot counselor, gamification designer, and recyclable design specialist.” — Charles Fadel. What does the increasing progression of Robotics/Artificial Intelligence mean for future jobs in the next decade? There is a huge “jobsolescence” factor that has become more relevant in recent years. This means that jobs will be rendered obsolete. An estimate of 9% to 50% of the labor forces of developed countries are susceptible to automation in the coming decades, but even at the 9% low end of the estimates, this can cause significant social unrest – not to mention the 50% nightmare possibility... However, jobs are facing multiple scenarios in upcoming years.

• The first scenario is replacement or substitution of jobs with automation.
• The second is augmentation, such as IBM’s Watson used to shoulder doctors’ diagnostics, and
• the third is the creation of more jobs, which is the hardest to imagine. Since there are many jobs that exist today that did not exist a decade ago, it is quite likely this scenario will happen as well. Some of these jobs include app developer, driverless car engineer, and big data analyst. Not only are these jobs being created due to the increase of technological development but also the pay in these jobs is high. While not as high paying, other jobs created by technological change include social media manager, drone operator, and Uber driver (and the latter two can be automated over time).

Given the rapid growth in automation, it’s clearly essential that we prepare young people for those new jobs now.
What is the role of education in keeping up with the automation advances and equipping people with the competencies they must have to make a living?

We Need to Modernize Education. The Clock Is Ticking.
A higher level of overall expertise is needed to be able to survive in this new environment, as it became the norm during the Industrial Revolution – the Digital Revolution is placing an even greater pressure on all of us. People need to be versatile and adaptable to their morphing environments, and to be “upskilled.” This is similar to what was implemented for the Industrial Revolution but with the rapid growth of automation, this process needs to be implemented significantly faster. In addition, the goals of education have to tackle three main points.

1. The first is relevance, for motivation and a real-world applicability.
2. The second is versatility, for robustness in the face of relentless change.
3. The final point is the transfer for actionability across novel situations.

Transfer is critical because it is the ability to use one’s learning from whenever it was acquired and use it for a completely different context. So in the same way we talk about “flipping the classroom”, we must talk about “flipping the curriculum”. Traditional education has focused on information and data, but expertise and transfer are of much greater importance. These goals apply to schools, higher education, as well as lifelong learning/workforce development. “We talk about ‘flipping the classroom’, we must talk about ‘flipping the curriculum’.”

What should we teach young people in an age where search engines have answers for factual and procedural knowledge? When artificial intelligence analyses, synthesizes, and creates?

We must begin by pushing a lot harder to reach "transfer"—the ability to use one's competencies outside an original classroom setting, in the real world, perhaps many years hence. This was always the goal of an education but rarely a deliberate, comprehensive, systematic, and demonstrable focus. In essence, we should be "flipping the curriculum," inverting our focus from information and knowledge into expertise and transfer (refer to chart below).

Further, we need urgent action on the nonacademic qualities young people need for success. And so, we need to shift from a purely knowledge-based education toward a focus on skills (creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration), character (mindfulness, curiosity, courage, resilience, ethics, leadership), and meta-learning (learning how to learn, growth mindset, metacognition). Schools will need to prepare students to find the intersection between these four dimensions of knowledge, skills, character, and meta-learning.

Such a re-imagining of education will require a profound redesign of curricula where modernizing what students learn is an imperative. Where science, technology, engineering, and math matter more than ever, but humanities and arts remain essential, each discipline borrowing from the other for a deeply versatile education. Where skills, character, and meta-learning are developed deliberately and fully, not haphazardly. Where working with others, at school, in the community, and in the workplace is as vital as ensuring growth at every academic level, allowing top students to thrive while assisting all students in the areas where they are struggling.

Time is running out, but luckily, we know how to redesign curricula. We need only the vision and courage to do so.

Charles Fadel is the founder of the Center for Curriculum Redesign in Boston and the author of Four-Dimensional Education: The Competencies Learners Need to Succeed (Center for Curriculum Redesign, 2015). Vol. 37, Issue 15, Pages 22-23. Next week we will be focusing again on this subject matter and on what steps to take.

As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with the this thinking of CCR to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace.





The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.
These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

An overview of all core Share2Uplift group members
In past weeks we introduced you to our 8 Share2Uplift core group members in our blogs.
Read a summary of passed blog interviews and find out more about the members and their passion for their work and improvement of our community.

Ivan Kuster
As a Life Coach Ivan is helping his coachees to balance their life and work hours. Mastery of the balance in one’s life could be very challenging, especially in a world full of increasing pressure on the personal level or at work. Over time Ivan has evolved more and more into gaining an ever increasing mastery on asking the right self-reflective questions to his coachees.

With their explicit permission, Ivan also gives suggestions, but he mainly focuses on asking questions. “What drives me is, that via coaching, I can enable people on an individual level, to transform into a better, more balanced version of themselves, by changing their mindsets. This person can then influence their circle of influence in their families, at their work and as volunteers as part of their social responsibility activities. If we connect and align the leadership from all walks of life on Curaçao in the near future, this as part of an alignment of all coaches on the island, we can change Curaçao and be much better prepared for the challenges of the 21st century”.

The greatest satisfaction according to Ivan comes, when a coachee expresses their gratitude for the changes, that they have experienced in their lives. Read some success stories on his business website .

Helping the coachees to start their Soul Search by digging deep within, finding out who they are, what gives their life meaning. Helping them through the process of discovery, then setting new objectives and guiding them through the process of getting on their path to reach their desires and dreams.

Haydee: “Being a communicator people open up to me and trust me with their issues and by asking the right questions, I can get to the core of the issue or what the person really want of life. I coach people that are at a crossroad in their life, that know a little bit what they want but don’t know how to realize it. Or that suddenly discover there is so much more to life, but are overwelmed and do not know what to do next. Coaching in a serene and nature inspired environment gives it a special touch. Starting with some “Soul on fire”- questions opens the coachees mind to what they deeply believe, want and aspire”.

Meet Share2Uplift core group member Jamir Barton, Next MYM session on March 15th and This Week Tips

Posted on February 19, 2018 at 3:20 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (19th of February – 25th of February) we will present our last (8th) and youngest Share2Uplift core group member Jamir Barton. We will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform session on the 15th of March and we will end with some personal coaching tips. We will upload one of these tips, every day this coming week on our Share2Uplift Facebook Page.

Our next core group member of Share2Uplift, Jamir Barton
Jamir Barton is a premaster in Accounting and Controlling, on his way to become a certified Registered Accountant. In May 2013 after earning his first 100 guilders after a bad business transaction between his previous employer and himself, he went to the Chamber of Commerce in Curaçao to start the journey of JBF Consultancy. A couple of months earlier, after having lost all his material wealth that he had worked for day and night during the previous ten years in a blink of an eye, Jamir became literally homeless in Hoiland.

Jamir: “For society I was merely a product of the financial crises. I was a living example of the Murphy’s Law in that period. “Everything that could go wrong went wrong”. But instead of staying that state as a victim, I decided to become a hero. I trusted and believed in God and started my journey following a completely unknown path, but holding my faith high, and keeping my passion for what I stand for in life. My passion is: “Creating and adding value to the determined stakeholders and partners of JBF Consultancy”.

Because of the collaboration network Jamir works with, he offers at JBF Consultancy, services on Consultancy. Auditing, Coaching, Project management, Document Management, Software Development and his primary program “My Budget My Challenge”.

Jamir: “My Budget My Challenge (MBMC) is a wealth creation and transformational program, were we work on a wealthy mentality of our participants. We live in abundant world where everyone has plenty of opportunities to make his plans and dreams come through”.

When asked as a member of the core group of Share2Uplift how does this service relate to the mindset changes the core group is aiming to achieve, he answers: “The focus of MBMC is in transforming the mindset of the participant in looking for wealth creation instead of consumption. The collaboration between Share2uplift core group members and JBF Consultancy will help to transform a nation and giving the people the positive mindset that “they can achieve everything that they want and put their mind on”. “We will work from the intrinsic motivation instead of the extrinsic motivation”. He gets the most satisfaction when he sees his determined clients and network partners succeed in their plans to create a  wealthy present and future. His strengths are, that he has a positive and growth mindset, he takes up challenges and he has an international and national network of people that surround him. What makes him unique is, that he has had experiences in coming out of a poverty mentality (when he lost everything and didn’t get help), stayed a fighter and at the same time transformed into a wealth creator. He knows that when you want to achieve anything in life, your power needs to come from God that fuels your battery, so that you can take intrinsically motivated actions towards your goals.


When asked whom do you love to have as clients he is quick to answer that the clients of JBF Consultancy are: “Determined persons who will make sacrifices to achieve their future best version. We always trigger our clients to expand their ability and use their imagination to project their best self version. The unique way that we work is that we see possibilities in every engagement. And our principle in every engagement is in being of value to our clients and partners. Our long term plan Is to start an institution in 2019 where every determined client and partner, who is ready to create wealth and work on their best future self and for their family and next generations, will collaborate together to achieve this unique goal.
Our biggest dream is to serve a billion self-determined clients and partners in the wealth creation process. We don’t want other people to be our savior. We can and will create a wealthy future, and we will inv

est in the future of our and other nations, who are ready for this amazing journey”.

It appeared to us that you have an ever growing network of people and contacts, a lot of them not in your age group? Why is that?
Jamir: “Most of my network partners are more experienced in life and are willing to advice a

nd share their experiences with their successes and also their failures and they have a lot of stories to tell. As a child I always looked up to King Solomon and his board of advisors. I have understood from his stories, that If you want to make a great impact in the World, you need to have an experienced, knowledgeable and honest group of advisors around you”.


He always was eager to know different cultures and people around the world. Because of that eagerness, he created a network of different people from different countries, ethnic- and religious background. “The networks that we have, helps each of us in our growth and that is the best marketing strategy that we have for orther future clients. Sharing is Caring”.
“Since my childhood I had a growth mindset, I was positive and I didn’t put limitations to what I could achieve in life. I always had big dreams and worked deliberately towards achievement of my predetermined goals. I always looked for ways and means to create and add value to the whole of the society”.

You were different when you were young and what was so different of you compared with those in your peer group?
Jamir: “When I was young, I was self-determined to achieve my goals and sharing knowledge with my family and friends. I always was interested in finding new ways to understand and explain a phenomenon. I believed that we as “human beings” have unlimited potential that we are very far from discovering the biggest part of of our potential”.

A last question? Jamir where do you want to be, when you turn 65 years old?
“When I turn 65 years old, I imagine my family and myself are making a trip to the Moon. So that we can see the beauty of the earth from the outer space. I see the earth as a womb and there will come a time, that we as human beings will have grown and matured so much, that we will have a much better understanding of the universe”. Jamir Barton can be contacted at [email protected]  or Mob: +5999 6833279.

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
