We are so excited that two innovators from HundrED’s 2019 Global Collection LEMA & Dream a Dream have been featured in the Brookings Report for their contribution to innovations in Playful Learning. The report, titled 'How playful learning can help leapfrog progress in education' provides insights on trends and gaps within the playful learning innovation space. According to the Brookings report, there are over 3,000 playful learning innovations being implemented around the world.
