The Barcelona based alternative educational establishment Learnlife has been singled out as one of the top 100 education innovations to watch in the year 2023 by HundrED.
HundrED, which promotes innovation in education that helps children thrive, are seen as a reference point for the future of education. They work on the concept of networked enterprise looking specifically at insights, data ideas and impact are openly shared and built upon via its network of members and ambassadors.
Learnlife’s ‘Elements of Learning Innovation’ was picked from more than 3,000 applicants by a panel of 200 global education experts. The concept supports the transformation to a new learning paradigm based on research and the best learning practices from around the world. LearnLife now features in the HundrED 2023 Global Collection report which recognises the most impactful and scalable innovations changing the face of education.
“This recognition is very encouraging. The elements are not a textbook for change, but rather a collection of ideas upon which any learning community might reflect. Given we are heading almost a quarter of our way into this century – a century evidencing a world of constant change, disruptions and challenges, the time for change and innovation is now. As communities, we must tackle the need to positively transform the experiences of learning for current and future generations.”Dr Stephen Harris, Co-Founder & Chief Learning Officer at LearnLife
