need

The world is changing rapidly. How can we help our students flourish in life no matter what happens?


 

solution

We need visionary leadership at every level of our education systems that promote impactful and scalable education innovations

There seems to be a general consensus that we should be teaching and learning a wide range of skills; for example, the love of learning to a growth mindset, co-operation to curiosity, critical-thinking skills to empathy. But the real question is: how do we make the change happen so that every child succeeds, teachers feel empowered, energised and motivated, and parents support the process? 

This is where HundrED steps in. Instead of being frustrated with the slow process of change, we at HundrED, try to be optimistic and highlight how educational change is already happening around the world. For our Global Collection, we researched thousands of global education innovations leading meaningful improvements across five broad focus areas: skills, teachers, assessment, environment and/or systems, and leadership. Congratulations to the selected innovations selected for the HundrED 2020 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.
