HundrED today announced a range of new partnerships to help reach teachers across the world in its aim to help schools to transform education.
The partnerships are with the Bett global series of ed-tech events, the social entrepreneur network Ashoka and the world’s leading experts on sustainable development, SDSNEdu. The partnerships, in addition to existing relationships with Ideo and XQ, will support HundrED’s aim to collaborate with teachers, thought leaders, policy makers and organisations to help shape the future of education.
Its partnership with Bett, a series of award-winning events for those passionate about learning technologies, sees the events use their global network of education innovators and policy makers to further raise awareness of HundrED. The flagship Bett event takes place from 25 and 28 January 2017 at ExCeL London, where HundrED will launch the first of its global education experiments to an audience of over 40,000.
Ashoka’s network of over 3000 social entrepreneurs in 70 countries, and SDSNEdu’s mission to provide open online education to effect sustainable development will further support HundrED’s global community of educators and thought leaders.
Saku Tuominen, founder of HundrED, said: “HundrED exists to support a community of educators all over the world, and collaboration underpins everything we do. Each of our partners have been chosen because of their commitment to helping to develop 21st century skills and find solutions to global challenges. We’re looking forward to working with them to affect social and educational change across the world.”
Kate Robinson, Editor in Chief of HundrED, commented: “These partners have been selected for their commitment to improving education and for sharing our core ethos of authentic, global education reform.”
HundrED’s education experiments will be trialled in schools across Finland in the 2016 / 2017 academic year, and the project is now accepting submissions for its 100 global experiments from teachers across the world.
