HundrED Services

HundrED identifies education innovations and helps them spread. Our goal is to ensure quality education for every child in the world. We believe that can be achieved by supporting pedagogically sound education innovations spread. Our services have come about from our work with diverse changemakers in education, and we are always happy to discuss new ideas to make change happen.

We help identify or implement innovations

We work closely with education providers and school systems on innovation. We can identify innovative policies and practices that should be globally recognized, or help improve or implement innovations.

Promote innovation in education

Our partners are visionary supporters of education innovation. Global partners work with us in a variety of ways, while Spotlight partners sponsor projects that are aligned with their work in regions and/or themes.

Work with us to make change happen

Funders help innovation spread faster than anyone. We provide our expertise to funders looking to solve challenges globally or locally, and sometimes expand their horizons on what and where to fund.

Our approach


The starting point of our work is always an educator´s need. For example: “how should we teach critical thinking skills?” or ”how can we improve assessment?”


Almost always there are several good solutions that already exist. We identify them and connect educators with innovators.


However, that is only the beginning. We don´t believe in quick fixes. We help you to create a long term implementation plan and facilitate a culture of continuous improvement and innovation.


Spotlight: Parental Engagement

Engaging parents and families to help make education more aligned with innovative pedagogy is critical if change efforts to education are to be sustained. Therefore, building trusting relationships and confidence among parents to participate in the education process is essential. 

This Spotlight project aims to identify and promote impactful and scalable solutions that support the engagement of parents with their child’s education. This project is a collaboration between HundrED, Kidsburgh, the Center for Universal Education (CUE) at Brookings, and IDEO with financial support provided by The Grable Foundation.

Share your innovation

HundrED publishes articles, videos and hosts events for education stakeholders. 

To share the voices of education innovators and HundrED community, we have a unique approach to media in the field of education. We make sure every story is inspirational and positive, uplifting educators and audiences worldwide to make sure they feel supported and appreciated. 


All of our articles and videos are of the highest quality, as we believe that those working in education deserve the very best. Our aim is to simplify our audience’s lives by sharing innovations that have been proven to improve education and sharing it in an accessible way that makes innovations easy to implement. We want to make sure that our audience – from parents, to students, to educators to policymakers – feel they can trust the innovations we’ve picked, understand why they’re important, and know-how to make them happen.

HundrED Connect

HundrED Connect is an invitation-only platform committed to helping the education community thrive.


The HundrED Connect platform is an invitation only, closed group. Access to creating, seeing, and responding to requests is restricted to our selected innovators (piloting with the HundrED 2020 Collection), implementers, and funders. Everyone on the platform can create request “cards” on the Connect web application, which will be visible to the whole community. Other members of the community can respond to the request by connecting with the requestor directly. To ensure that all the requests are attended to, HundrED will also ensure each request is reviewed and help identify someone inside or outside the community who can help, and then work to facilitate that connection.  

In the long term, HundrED also aims to build a capacity-building and knowledge-sharing component to the Connect platform, so that both funders and innovators can go to the platform to learn or access the tools they need to grow different areas of their organisations. Our dream is to build an easy to use service that can offer meaningful help for HundrED Community, and we look forward to sharing many success stories from the platform.
