Yahki founders, American-Egyptian architect and designer, Ashraf Tawakkol, and Australian global education entrepreneur, Mark Lamont, share a unique story of how social media R&D in the context of overseas democratic uprisings and the confluence of social media led to the development of Yahki -  a toolset that now offers breath-taking ‘learner democracy and liberation’. The R&D focused on content curation, mash up, and sharing in the public domain, not just at school, leading to the invention of the ‘education channel’. The channel enables everyone to move seamlessly between their public and school social media worlds. The outcomes and new opportunities for learners, teachers, parents and schools are amazing, for the 1st5days and beyond. This is a ‘world first’ not to be missed.”
