A3 – MeLearn

by Matt on March 28, 2020
Our education system is stuck in the 19th Century and needs an update!  MeLearn is a fictional company based on a concept that could revolutionize our entire system of education. I honestly love and believe in this concept … but feel that it’s a monstrous task to take on the education ‘establishment’.  And I’m not […]
