The aim of this project is to support the future leaders of our world under the leadership of our teachers and community leaders through problem-solving skills ornamented with quality tools and ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) use effectively.
Dr. Hayal Köksal designed “ICT Seagulls Project” for students of K-12 levels 17 years ago. Then, she developed a new project under the title of “Leading Seagulls Project” for adults who might be listed as; undergraduate and graduate students, teacher-trainees, retired teachers and all the community leaders. Both projects hug not only the gifted but also the disabled participants. Faculty administrators, business world, NGO leaders and parents are all invited from all countries to support world future generations through those projects.
After 450 certified national and international projects, we claim that we are taking good and fruitful steps for the future world. With the appearance of Covid-19 restrictions, the project has been more popular due to its technology-focused chracacteristic.
We will train, guide, follow and give the needed feedback to your teams through technology.
Our way is “İmece Circles” which is the localized and reengineered form of “Students’ Quality Circles (SQCs)” methodology. PDCA Mindset (Plan, Do, Check, Act) is used as the logical format of it. Form your team (=circle), decide on your problem area and apply.
Our sharing mode is Web Page design and/or Blog supported by PPT Presentations both in Turkish and in English.
“ICT Seagulls ” is a students’ project and will be formed under the dynamic leadership of two project teachers (one teacher should be an English teacher) along with 5-8 students and two parents. The role of teachers is only facilitating.
“Leading Seagulls” project is for adults, especially for;

* retired teachers and for all community leaders including families, business world and NGOs.

YIMEDER ACADEMY: is one of the supporting projects of YIMEDER. It is connected to “TEACHERS, WE ARE WITH YOU!/ÖĞRETMENİM YANINDAYIZ!” Platform taking place on Facebook. Please visit and add this link (https://www.facebook.com/Öğretmenim-Yanindayiz).
The aim of this Academy is to support teachers through pre- and in-service training programs. Guidance of the teacher-trainees is seen as an important problem at Faculties of Education. Our experienced team members will act as mentors when needed through this program. In addition to professional teachers, we will open “Drama”, “Graphics and Arts” and “Photography” seminars for the community members as well. Supporting the challenged students and collaborating with their families will be another target group. We will try to teaching catching fish, instead of giving fish. Empowering the challenged will be one of our main mission. Especially deaf and physically disabled ones might apply to us to get the needed information.
The following trainings and seminars will be organized in schools or at any hotel when needed. School managers and individuals should be in contact with us to learn more. Please follow our web page. You can also write to: [email protected] . Thank you for your interest.
