Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

I believe that through a collaborative network we can exchange ideas and contribute to educational projects that are close. I like to interact with professionals from different parts of the world and Hundred provides this exchange between people who think about an innovative education.

How can education support students to flourish?

Only through education can there be transformation. Education creates the opportunity for students to change their future and that of their community.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Just as the world is changing, education needs to keep up with these changes. I understand that innovation should not be seen as an end, but as a means of improving educational results. It is very important that we can change the current pedagogical practices so that we can improve the academic results of students and increase the level of satisfaction and fun at school.
