Tao Learning Overview

We encourage learning from preschool all the way to career growth with a SMILE - a Self-Motivated Impact Learning Environment. In this method, students go through a 5-step process to encourage themselves, ignite their own curiosity, find inner passions, collaborate with like-minded individuals who share similar goals and who are discovering the same subjects, and finally to engage in community development to share wisdom back with those who need it most.

We have trained the same individuals for over 25 years and continue to encourage, inspire, and mentor curious minds of all ages. We curate learning environments to be peaceful, flexible, and all-encompassing with tools in place for the self-motivated to explore. Nobody wants to sit in small desks and get lectured, but on the flipside - teachers do not want to work with students who lack motivation. As a SMILE Student, you are responsible for your own exploration and your own curiosity.

The Smile Coach does not hold your hand through the learning process, but instead reminds you how valuable it is to make mistakes and also reminds you to engage in impactful learning. This style of learning has tangible results in your community instead of mundane homework with no real-world application. In this fashion, we are able to give internships and opportunities to students of all levels within companies and organizations who are partnered with us.

The SMILE Method™

This Method utilizes philosophy, tracking tools, and teaching techniques for global success in educating individuals on a large scale. We encourage learning from preschool all the way to career growth with a SMILE - Self-Motivated Impact Learning Environment. In this method, students go through a 5-step process to encourage themselves, ignite their own curiosity, find inner passions, collaborate with like-minded individuals who share similar goals and who are discovering the same subjects, and finally to engage in community development to share wisdom back with those who need it most.

Identifying "Self" is a conscious awakening into understanding individual identity. Individual responsibility. An Individual Journey. The Self is the foundation upon what all growth occurs. While we all work on a team in life, nobody will ever put in as much effort for your own life as you do for your Self. This step creates an appreciate for the inner journey and gives awareness to focusing on the stillness and reflection needed for success and enlightenment.

The students' journey must be built on the understanding that being motivated is created from the inside. This is an inner spark that is ignited through curiosity and exploration. Motivation is a constant journey for knowledge and understanding. The persistence of this journey on a daily basis without external influences creates a powerful and confident student who may embrace mistakes, embrace misunderstandings, and embrace the constant changes and challenges of life with newfound curiosity each day. Building upon the identity of "Self" - a motivated individual may seek responsible and ethical passion in inner development and societal development.

Embracing Hive Mentality, we encourage all students to adapt an extremely social and kinetic experience of life. We are social creatures who enjoy having feedback for all our senses. With this in mind, we guide students on journeys that give experiences across all senses with exposure to multiple cultures, lands, and all types of experiences that will lead to sensual refinement. When life becomes social, we may depend upon and also help the larger society as a whole. As this step comes after Self and Motivated - it uses these building blocks to show up in society in a way where the students' identity, integrity and motivation are all harnessed from the inside of their being. This leaves ample energy to assist society and become a proponent of growth and development as opposed to being a societal burden. We take the impactful element to the next level by providing futuristic impactful experiences by embracing technology, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and all other forms of interactivity we find needed in a Hive.

A constant nurturing of the spirit, body, heart, and mind creates a life of inner peace and wisdom. We steer students to a lifestyle filled with books, movies, games, and social experiences all centric around the concept of education. Students are taught to see all of life as a learning experience and to shift their perspective to that of constantly seeking opportunities to test their knowledge, to experiment in life, and to expand consciousness in various directions. As our current workforce is dependent upon skilled workers with knowledge of STEAM, we focus much of our literacy on these subjects. However, we are aware that these fields have only been relevant for a short period of history in human existence and we would rather lead a student to a thirst for knowledge in general rather than one specific subject or sector to be prepared as a strong part of society and be adaptable as our societies shift.

Students are encouraged to seek out communities, situations, and habitats where their thirst for knowledge is honored with Hives that have already shown respect and even masters of Self-Motivated Interactivite Learning - which are the building blocks for all successful environments. We build environments that encourage self discovery, that involve a lot of opportunities for interactivity whether that is social or digital, and also all centric around learning environments. Thus, this entire vision encompasses the SMILE Method. We have developed such environments all across the world in the form of libraries, intentional communities, villages, and are even reshaping entire Cities to see their mission statement as SMILE Cities. The possibilities of SMILE Spaces is unlimited and we look forward to spreading the vision of these environments around the world as our message reaches more people.

Help Curious Minds Find Answers

Through our SMILE Coach training, volunteers show pathways to success for students of all ages. The training program teaches motivational techniques to pass along to students so they can create a lifestyle filled with creativity, learning, and exploration in subjects that will shape their life.

Global STEAM Literacy Initiative

We partner with nations that have an invested interest in raising the intellect of society. We train entire communities to embrace STEAM from the youngest in the civilization to the leaders and employers for futhering STEAM literacy. With this approach, cities and communities grow in economy while also experiencing intellectual growth. Literacy in STEAM reduces crime, poverty, and larger issues societies around the world face.

When aligned directly with a nation, we create specialized STEAM programs so students can enter the workforce with full confidence their education has been curated by our international organization who has multiple corporate partners. We are the students' bridge to the world of business and continue to provide literacy in STEAM and EQ skills throughout their career. Corporations constantly share insight into the skills and qualities they are seeking in candidates to help us keep our literacy program relevant across many markets.
