About us

MOTI Education is composed of five collaborators. Our story began six years ago when our group met to collaborate on and discuss various methods of teaching and trends in Education. These meetings were found to be quite productive and helpful and soon they became a regular occurrence. We soon noticed that the five of us share  similar, yet still diverse, ideas and thoughts about Education. Little by little, the idea of sharing our knowledge evolved, and eventually that led to starting  the MOTI Education.

If you need any assistance with developing teaching or education systems, please do not hesitate to contact anyone of us.
