Emaginos Inc. president Allan Jones was the featured guest on “Optimal Self Conversations,” an inspirational forum hosted by three-sport professional athlete and productivity coach Jeremy Herider (https://nnw.fm/pX7rk). The forum is designed to be a valuable resource that features interviews with inspiring people who, through adversity, grit and persistence, are forging a path to being the best version of themselves. Emaginos Inc. is raising capital from the general investing public under provisions of Regulation A and is seeking $3 million to implement its proven, patent-pending K-12 education system and transform the nation’s educational system (please see website if interested in investing).
During the interview, Jones discussed his background, including his Naval Academy education, as well as his experience and philosophy about education. He also shared his personal mantra: When I wake up every morning, I have two goals: learn something and make the world a better place.
“Those were values that I learned from my parents,” Jones stated during the interview. “My dad was one of those guys who would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. If we learn to take pleasure from making other people feel good, we’ll never be unhappy.
“You don’t even have to be successful at it,” he continued. “Just the very act of trying is rewarding. It’s not a zero-sum game. You get as much as you give. It’s not like if I give it to you, I gave it up and don’t have it anymore. I gave it to you, and I got more.”
Jones talked about his training as a mechanical engineer, including an invaluable principle that he has recognized as applicable throughout his life, even outside of his profession as an engineer. “One of the things about engineering that really everybody should learn is that everything is part of a system,” Jones continued. “Nothing happens in isolation. So, I always looked at everything with curiosity. I was wondering, ‘What made that happen? What conditions were required in order for it to occur? What would have made it happen differently?’ That’s just the way my head works, a curiosity engine. And you know what? Everybody’s head works that way.
“Anywhere you go — at the grocery store, the mall, a ball game — you can observe little kids learning. They are learning machines,” Jones continued. “As they touch something, they’re learning what it feels like, what it smells like. They learn almost everything by doing. Confucius said, ‘I hear, and I forget. I see, and I remember. I do, and I understand.’”
The philosophy undergirds the very foundation of Emaginos, a company that Jones is passionate about. The company is committed to creating a learning environment that is personal and that provides students with a foundation of basic skills; the Emaginos approach also includes competence in problem solving and application of knowledge to relevant real-life problems.
While the company believes that America’s K-12 public schools are a national treasure but that the system is broken — and cannot be fixed. There is a solution, however. The game-changing Emaginos model uses existing facilities, teachers, and administers and can be implemented within existing budgets using existing proven best practices.
The company begins its transformation of education by working with an initial school within a district; that school serves as a model for the transformation. The charter model implements the Emaginos Discovery Learning System (“DLS”), which outlines a systemic transformation from the current teacher-centered model to a K-12 public education system that fosters and supports a student’s desire to learn. After the model is successful in the charter school, the lessons learned in transforming the initial school are used to continue the change throughout the rest of the school district.
Dedicated to transforming K-12 public schools to a model composed of integrated proven best practices, Emaginos opposes replacing public schools with charter schools or damaging public schools by draining resources through vouchers or school choice programs. Emaginos firmly believes in restoring the concept of the neighborhood schools as the center of the community.
