HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
We believe education is the main engine for personal, social and economic progress. It is central to every student's life.
We know communication in schooling environments is often ineffective. Mostly due to the co-existance of multiple channels, lack of resources and lack of skill to manage large amounts of information.
We work everyday to empower schools and strengthen their community ties.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Our platform is on the forefront of educational techonolgy. It is adapted to address institution's special needs. Its ease-of-use allows families to have real time access to the latest news from their children.
It includes three main areas
(i) Communications: Newsfeed, messaging and calendar.
(ii) Academic management: academic and attendance reports and student profiles.
(iii) Tools for blended learning: virtual classroom and assignment management.
We believe that active, transparent and effective means of communication between families and schools engages parents to support student's education. Extensive research indicate that parental involvement improves student's engagement and outcomes. We conduct interviews, periodic surveys and analyze platform usage data to understand the value and impact of our solutions for users, schools and learning.
How has it been spreading?
Over the last year, we tripled the amount of schools that use our solutions, spread to 13 countries in Latin America and doubled our team with new hires from Argentina & Perú.
Due to COVID-19 spread in 2020, the need for digital solutions to stay in touch with students and families grew dramatically. We decided to provide our solutions for free, to make sure every school had the means to sustain contact with its community regardless of its economic background.
Over the next 2-3 years we expect to continue empowering schools in Latin America, to spread awareness of the key role families play in a child's education and support educators in any way we can.
