Raya Bidshahri is a serial entrepreneur and award-winning educator. She is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of School of Humanity (SoH), an online high school with an innovative learning model and interdisciplinary curriculum. She has been featured by the BBC as one of the 100 most influential and inspiring women globally.

Raya sat down with EDUtech_talks to discuss what inspired her to setup SoH and make it so different from the schools we have had. We touched on alternative pedagogies, changing perceptions on them and scaling them to reach any many students as possible. She shares how the virtual nature of SoH opened access to a new form of education to students, and mostly girls, in developing nations.
