Spotlight on Switzerland - Digital Transformation at School
Spotlight Switzerland – Digital Transformation at School is part of the HundrED Spotlight collection. It aims to highlight emerging best practices and supports inspiring teachers who actively tackle digital change in the classroom together with their students. The call for projects was open to all teachers working in Switzerland at kindergarten, primary and secondary levels.
How does it work?
Who can apply?
Any kindergarten, primary and secondary school educator living in Switzerland can submit their project focusing on digital transformation at school from May 2nd to July 5th, 2019 using the application form.
In August 2019, 10 inspiring Swiss education projects will be selected by an expert jury according to three main criteria: innovativeness, impact, and scalability.
How are projects selected?
To determine how well submissions fit the three criteria, HundrED uses the following descriptive factors that have been shown in innovation literature and HundrED’s research to play a significant role in establishing innovativeness, impact, and scalability in educational innovations:
- Clear, valuable goal that addresses a need
- Structured implementation design
- Purposeful collaboration
- Pedagogically sound
- Child/person centered
- Improves outcomes
- Elevates educators Family/community/government engagement
- Cost-effectiveness & affordability
Based on these factors, alongside qualitative evidence from interviews with the HundrED research team, innovations are given an overall score based on their innovativeness, impact, and scalability. Innovations are scored twice, first based on their current state and then based on their potential.
