HundrED bringing Finnish education innovation to the world

 

An official part of Finland’s centennial celebrations, HundrED is a Finnish-born project researching global innovations in education, and helping to disseminate this best practice. HundrED has offices in both Helsinki and London, where the teams are working to find 100 innovations in Finland locally and 100 innovations from around the world.

In London, the HundrED global team have just announced the first ten global innovations, whilst in Helsinki the Finnish team have just announced the final twenty-five Finnish innovations. HundrED will be trailing the Finnish innovations in schools across the country and their project pages will be updated as the experiments are put into practice.

The remaining ninety global innovations are currently being researched and will be announced in the Fall of 2017. All the global innovations will be assessed by expert advisory boards, as well as student advisory boards too, before being selected.

The themes of the innovations span the whole spectrum of K12 education, tacking the diverse multitude of problems and aspects of education that need innovating. All of the HundrED innovations must adhere to the same criteria, they must be innovative, scalable and high-impact.

Come the Fall of 2017, the 100 Global innovations and 100 Finnish innovations will be packaged and shared with the world for free, so that anyone anywhere in the world has access to HundrED’s work and can improve education where they are.
