Global collection

Yearbook 2020

The annual Global Collection highlights 100 of the brightest innovations in K12 education from around the world to anyone for free. Now in our third Collection, the goal is to help pedagogically sound, ambitious innovations spread across the world. 

We evaluate each innovation for its impact and scalability based on the latest information and from multiple perspectives (e.g. teachers, students, leaders, innovators). For example, this year, as part of our selection process, a total of 2008 reviews were made by our expert Academy Members. We hope that this Collection will contribute to our mission at HundrED so that every child has the opportunity to flourish in life.

Quality Education for all during Covid-19

Health officials are currently taking steps to prevent the introduction and spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) into communities across the world. The pandemic situation is affecting the lives of many students, families & communities. This special collection is compiling stories and solutions from schools around the world doing their best for students.

Our approach


The starting point of our work is always an educator´s need. For example: “how should we teach critical thinking skills?” or ”how can we improve assessment?”


Almost always there are several good solutions that already exist. We identify them and connect educators with innovators.


However, that is only the beginning. We don´t believe in quick fixes. We help you to create a long term implementation plan and facilitate a culture of continuous improvement and innovation.


Together with our partners we help educators, innovators and funders

For educators

We identify well researched and impactful solutions to various problems, challenges and needs that educators all over the world might have and help in the implementation process.


For innovators

We offer visibility, encouragement and credibility innovators deserve and try to create meaningful connections with educators.


For funders

Sometimes funders have resources but cannot identify solutions that have a track record and potential to work in multiple locations. We are happy to help.


For Partners

Our partners are visionary leaders that are promoting education innovation through our collaborative projects on every continent.


Let’s work together!
