HundrED & The World Bank Announce a New Project Transforming Teacher Professional Development
Spotlight on Teacher Professional Development in 2021
Scalable approaches to in-service teacher professional development are needed for countries to eliminate learning poverty and achieve inclusive and equitable quality education for all – the World Bank together with HundrED launches a Spotlight to identify tech-based solutions to support teachers.
The World Bank Group, Global Partnership for Education (GPE), and HundrED are teaming up to identify and share leading solutions from around the world that are helping teachers thrive in an ever-changing classroom. Through this Spotlight: Teachers for a Changing World, we aim to find solutions that train and improve teaching practices around the world. The Spotlight selections will be announced and promoted in August 2021 to education leaders, policymakers, and teachers around the world and contributes both to the World Bank Group's goal of eliminating Learning Poverty and HundrED’s mission of helping every child to flourish in life.

2020 has been a year like no other. So this year we decided to do something we have never done before, we chose to move the entire HundrED Innovation Summit online. The HundrED Innovation Summit was held free of charge over the course of three days. We crossed oceans and time-zones to help education stakeholders connect and share their innovative ideas and practices.
The main event announced the selected Innovators for the HundrED 2021 Global Collection. Other events held during the summit were Creativity, Quality Education for All, Education 2030 sessions and Tribute to Sir Ken Robinson. You can watch all the sessions on-demand on the summit page.

HundrED in partnership with The LEGO Foundation released a Spotlight Report on Creativity to help answer the question: how can we effectively nurture creativity in education? The results of the report shows there is no shortage of practices and solutions currently being implemented in many parts of the world that are both impactful and scalable. It is our hope to inspire more education systems to adopt creativity as a critical component of students’ learning and development process.

Now in our 4th Collection, the goal is to inspire a grassroots movement by helping pedagogically sound, ambitious innovations to spread and adapt to multiple contexts across the world.
