Jean Arnaud is the founder of Nova, an ed-tech company that uses Web 3 technology to revolutionize education. According to Jean, education and technology go hand in hand, and the global health crisis has accelerated the adoption of technology in classrooms to support and enhance learning. His ultimate goal is to enable a new era of education in which children are prepared for the era in which they will evolve, specializing in multiskilled expertise and addressing the challenges of their time.
Jean emphasizes the importance of immersive learning environments that engage students and encourages schools to create such environments to foster collaboration, confidence, initiative, and creativity. He believes that AI technology can personalize education and allow each student to fulfill his or her full potential, which is the ultimate goal of education. Jean believes that artificial intelligence is not a substitute for the human mind, but rather an ally that promotes thinking, research, analysis, and creation. Nova’s AI-based personal assistant (PA) will be an essential tool for students, instructors, and administrators, taking the form of an avatar that simulates human presence and being integrated with immersive and interactive digital learning spaces.
Jean’s ultimate objective is to create a new Renaissance spirit in education that cultivates a spirit of analysis and critical judgment and gives science, art, philosophy, and spirituality a central place. In order to accomplish this, he advocates for a modular school system with flexible hours, such as OMIA and encourages the early introduction of philosophy classes and philosophical discussions in schools. Jean’s fundamental message is that children should not be content with being only engineers, they should also be philosophers capable of thinking about the world and artists capable of designing it.
Jean believes that education alone has the power to transform lives, minds, and the world, and serves as the foundation of the society we aspire to create, giving meaning to all that we do and believe. Anyone who shares his beliefs is invited to join him in this monumental task of transforming education in order to better prepare children for the future.
