About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

We created Swarmob to reduce the school access gap in three current educational challenges: global citizenship for sustainable development, online collaboration and, project-based learning for the development of 21st century skills. We seek to create a global, diverse and inclusive network of schools from all sectors for the education of social and environmental changemakers.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

We provide a blended learning web platform to be used by students, teachers and management teams of all school levels and subjects. With this platform, users learn to use the Network Project-Based Learning (N-PBL) methodology and manage their processes in a simple, autonomous and effective way. Thus, they teach and learn in a collaborative and interdisciplinary way, interrelating all the knowledge of the school curriculum and creating sustainable impact solutions together with a network of schools. The platform helps with project planning, monitoring, feedback, inter-institutional network collaboration and measurement of 21st century skills (creativity, collaboration, digital literacy, global citizenship, communication, critical thinking and self-awareness). In addition, Swarmob conducts practical teacher training workshops to enhance N-PBL within the institutional culture.

How has it been spreading?

We work with 23 schools and 11.422 students and 455 teachers in Chile, Mexico, Peru Ecuador. We are currentily in the process of expanding to other schools and countries, thanks to a scalable digital system adapted to diverse contexts. In 2020 we won the VIVA Idea awards. In 2021 we were the only Latin American innovation to win the UN call for Global Innovations for the SDGs, participating in the STI Forum. In 2023 we won the TPrize educational innovation contest organized by the Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico) and the Universidad de los Andes (Colombia).

In addition, we conducted open reflection and professional development activities for teachers on education for sustainable development, with participants from 12 countries in Latin America, Spain, Canada and Australia.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

We work with K12 educational institutions (schools, high schools) and local governments. We offer individualised modalities of participation according to each institution culture and degree of innovation, so that all of them can be part of it. To join our network, please contact us at

1. Implement a small-scale pilot
We suggest starting a small-scale pilot in each school, involving 3-5 teachers to plan a PBL challenge. This can then be applied to 1 or 5 classrooms.
2. Expand implementation at the school level
After a successful experience with the initial pilot, we support the process of involving more teachers and classrooms in the school, promoting the transfer of know-how. We have a system differentiated by stages, which adapts to each school reality.
3. Strengthen network collaboration
Schools that have successfully engaged a critical mass of teachers and classrooms in the PBL methodology continue to use the Swarmob platform to facilitate PBL management processes. In addition, they begin a phase where network collaboration with other PBL schools and social and environmental institutions takes on more prominence.
