HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
Over the last few years, while we at Coschool have been delivering educational programs across Colombia and Latin America, the lack of a central learning community for educators has become obvious. During COVID-19 educators found themselves with limit, low-quality, and a dispersed offer of wellbeing, training, and networking tools. Edumocion provide everything educators need to be well and do well
How does your innovation work in practice?
Edumocion is the name of our pedgagogic framework, focussed on SEL & Wellbeing, developed via 300+ projects over 8+ years in 5+ countries. Edumocion.co is an ever-growing world of opportunities for educators in LatAm
It is a professional learning community first & an e-learning platform second. We aim to create community experiences at the centre of any learning experience for educators.
By offering a range of free resources (videos/downloadable resources for classrooms: EDUflash) we're able to offer immediate value to educators. Then, educators are able to participate in events & workshops and take part in cohort based courses that last 4-8 weeks (EDUcaminos): a personalised learning journey according to their needs with connected 1 hour mini-courses (EDUminis). EDUmotivadores are on hand to support and encourage participants to maintain intrinsic motivation during the process, and participants are able to celebrate (and be celebrated regularly) due to social interactions.
How has it been spreading?
Thanks to existing partnerships with major NGOs, Governments, and school networks in the region, Edumocion has already registered nearly 10,000 active users since late 2021 and we project to reach 50,000 by the end of 2023. We describe this is a B2B2C model. We are also experimenting with a direct B2C model, reaching educators through advertising strategies on social media, events, and other partnerships. We also see the potential for a B2C2B model as we know many of our users will convert into Edumocion champions and "upsell" the experience to their school or local Government.
We have also piloted "La Ruta Edumocion", a school bus that travelled the length of Colombia during 5 weeks capturing stories into an Edumocion documentary and onboarding teachers from all types of schools.
