Teresa Lin, CEO of the Sayling Wen Cultural & Educational Foundation, stated that, “From the past 15 years of experience on enhancing K-12 education, we believed education must quickly adapt to the interdisciplinary, diverse, and changing environment that will become the norm in the future. Two years ago, the foundation began to promote education innovation, Global Highlight for Future, beginning with the identification of the most influential, active, and representative K-12 innovation advocates, allowing society to understand the value of diversity and educational outlook from different education models and share Taiwan’s feature stories to the rest of the world. Since then, we have achieved great results, granting the Sayling Wen Cultural & Educational Foundation the opportunity to develop NXTEducator and a series of TalentNXT programs. This year, we established ‘FIT+HUG’ as the main theme that integrates the learning map of each stage.”

Teresa further explained that, “K-12 is a fundamental education stage where personal character is developed, which is why the foundation believes that this time period is the most important timing in shaping a person. The foundation believes that in order to lead Taiwan into global connection and nurturing visionary talent, it is essential to introduce international perspectives and further develop education innovation. The 1st NXTEducator Summit recognized innovations that were elected based on science, humanities, society, environment, and innovative education aspects, allowing students to study and develop their career value through observing, expressing, and training innovative mindset.”
