GLOBAL COLLECTION

HundrED 2022

HundrED has selected 100 inspiring innovations that are changing the face of education in a post COVID world. Find out more by exploring their innovation pages.
need

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. 




solution

Innovation in education is vital to help ensure that we prepare all young people for the future.

The HundrED’s annual Global Collection highlights 100 leading innovations in K12 education from around the world to anyone for free. Now in our 5th 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. To make this year’s Global Collection, a shortlist of innovations were reviewed by 120 Academy Members consisting of academics, educators, innovators, funders and leaders from all over the world.

HundrED Global Collection: 2022

2021 has once again been a challenging year, with the educational provision and students’ learning continuing to be impacted globally. We have seen first hand how education innovators over the last two years have not been overwhelmed, but have risen to the occasion and put students and their education first. This year has shown us the value of enhancing social and emotional learning, supporting teacher professional development, engaging parents in education, and teaching 21st-century skills to ensure students can adapt to a constantly changing society. We have seen that all these factors must be embedded in holistic education systems with child centered approaches that use assessment for learning

Now in our 5th 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.
