about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Children aren’t being prepared for the future. Education systems don’t teach in the way brains learn or involve students as active participants in their own learning. SEL programs have long-term benefits but many aren’t scalable, adaptable, educationally sound, measurable nor serve the displaced. Ecology doesn’t feature in SEL programs. Without a healthy planet there is no viable future for all.

How does your innovation work in practice?

SCALABLE: We equip educators with a mobile platform that works online, in person, in any geographic or socioeconomic context including crisis zones. Only the teacher requires a device to deliver lessons which are adaptable to any language/culture. In app videos address last mile issues.
PEDAGOGICALLY SOUND: A research based breadth of skills approach develops primary school children into better all round learners & well-adjusted adults. Our learning umbrellas Self, Society & Sustainability consist of modules, which in turn have 8-11 x 50 minute lessons. Children learn to value & protect themselves, all human beings & all life on earth. We use playful learning methods like music, art, storytelling & games organised around the UN SDGs & the understanding of multiple intelligences.
IMPACTFUL: In app features help educators measure impact & monitor feedback real time without overburdening them. Children demonstrate improved attitudes. Teachers confirm positively impacted pedagogical skills

How has it been spreading?

Completed 75 structured lessons. Trained teachers in Bangladesh, Uttarakhand, West Bengal & Jharkhand to reach 15k+ kids. Positive impact study by Dhaka University. Tested the platform in various settings: socioeconomic, geographic & connectivity. Documented delivery framework to close digital divides on the lines of income, race, gender to include the most disconnected communities. Report submitted to WEF’s Davos Labs 2021, to enable replication globally: https://bit.ly/3e4HcNS. Cited by Brookings Institution as a model of playful learning: https://bit.ly/3nWsLxd & featured by the UN as a best practice in SDG4&5: https://bit.ly/3hk77AI. In the next 3 years we will work with govts, schools, trusts & help displaced children through aid agencies. A network like HundrED will help us grow.
