Innovation collections

We need ambitious education innovations; innovative, impactful and scalable approaches that are effective also in low resource environments and help our children flourish in life.

Education innovations are essential to preparing young people for the future and help them cope with global challenges in a sustainable way.

It has been well argued that education is not keeping up with the modern world to remain relevant. Like in other sectors, innovation is necessary in education in order to adapt to factors and advances in the world. While it is recognised that many education innovations exist globally, they often struggle to be adopted and adapted to different contexts. 


HundrED’s annual Global Collection highlights 100 of the leading innovations in K12 education from around the world

To make this year’s Global Collection, a shortlist of innovations will be reviewed by +100 Academy Members consisting of academics, educators, innovators, funders, and leaders from over 50 countries. To progress through each phase, all innovations must have shown evidence for impact and scalability by the reviewers using the following definitions:

Impact: Evaluated as a valuable improvement within the innovation’s context. All innovations must have at least 1-year of being implemented with its intended users.

Scalability: Either the innovation is actively expanding to other contexts or has a high degree of transferability for others to adopt its practice/technology. 

Please see this article to understand our Selection Process. The deadline to submit your innovation is June 1st 2022.
