Education is not keeping up with the demands from accelerating changes in the modern world.
It has been well argued that education is not keeping up with the modern world to remain relevant. Like in other sectors, innovation is necessary in education in order to adapt to factors and advances in the world. While it is recognised that many education innovations exist globally, they often struggle to be adopted and adapted to different contexts. Since HundrED started we have found countless times that global education is still too local as much of it is happening in silos.
Innovation in education is vital to help ensure that we prepare all young people for the future.
To make this year’s Global Collection, a shortlist of innovations will be reviewed by 150 Academy Members consisting of academics, educators, innovators, funders, and leaders from over 50 countries. The Academy will review the shortlist based on our criteria of impact and scalability and then evaluated by HundrED’s Research Team to make the final Global Collection. To progress through each phase, all innovations must have shown evidence for impact and scalability by the reviewers using the following definitions:
Impact: Evaluated as a valuable improvement within the innovation’s context. All innovations must have at-least 1-year of being implemented with its intended users.
Scalability: Either the innovation is actively expanding to other contexts or has a high degree of transferability for others to adopt its practice/technology.
