Mr. Nicolas Sadirac
42
Director General and Co-Founder
France



Biography
Nicolas is passionate about pedagogy and in France is one of the main supporters of “active learning”. Based on the fact that “learning by doing” is a source of pleasure and thus leads to superior student performance, he invented and then directed Epitech in 1999, which, under his management, became the epitome of excellence in computer training in France.He is fierce opponent of an education system that he knows by heart (Henri IV, Stanford University, EPITA, HEC), but one that has stopped reinventing itself, and thus eventually fails to identify the best and true talents in the digital domain.With the creation of 42, Nicholas goes even further as he always looks to improve student performance in the realm of computer education. By creating 42, he has not only created a university which has no tuition fees and one that opens its doors to all talents, but one which features a peer-to-peer based learning with a limitless capacity for development.

Mr. Ramïn Farhangi
EUDEC FRANCE
Director of Institutional Relations
France

Biography
After 3 years of consulting for the Boston Consulting Group, Ramin realizes that his true calling is in education. Since he was the child who admired his 4th grade teacher, he dreamed of becoming such an adult who would help children grow into independent and happy adults. He decides to take a regular Math teaching job, convinced that he would be one of these rare teachers who will inspire his students and be remembered for life. After a few years practicing this noble and complicated profession, he gets to the conclusion that the actual design of school is an issue (curricula, timetables, age groups, classrooms...). Inspired by Ken Robinson, he realizes that only a very small minority of children can thrive at school: only those who enjoy studying academic disciplines. Searching for radical alternatives, he discovers democratic schools, and more specifically Sudbury Valley School, where children are completely free to live their own lives. Ramin is the cofounder of Ecole Dynamique (2015, Paris) based on the Sudbury concept, and the cofounder of EUDEC France, a network of now 19 democratic schools and 45 projects. His TED Talk reaches beyond 200 000 views.
