For ProFuturo, this acknowledgement is truly a reward for the work it has developed for four years to fight against the widening education gap in vulnerable environments. The selected candidates made themselves known in a completely virtual ceremony in which ProFuturo was able to detail the keys to its digital education programme.
Since 2017, the general objective of HundrED’s Innovation Summit has been to share the work of the one hundred selected innovations in a global scenario. The objective of this year’s summit was to unite a community and create a space so that the positive energy filters down, thereby allowing everyone involved to feel like they are a part of something bigger and to share the inspiring projects that are happening in education throughout the world right now.
This year’s edition, from the 4th to the 6th of November, was completely virtual because of the pandemic caused by COVID-19. The event brought together people from throughout the world who are interested in education, and it connected the attendees, regardless of their physical location, with “energy, inspiration and emotion”, in the words of the organisation.
Every year, the Finnish organisation, HundrED, investigates thousands of innovations in the area of global education whose work leads to significant improvements in five broad areas: skills, teachers, evaluation, environment and/or systems and leadership.
Since 2017, the selected innovations have been shared with the world at no cost through the Global Collection in HundrED’s Innovation Summit. ProFuturo’s project can be consulted in English through this link.
Within the Summit’s framework, a ProFuturo workshop was be held on Friday 6 November at 12:00 noon, therein explaining the educational resources that ProFuturo places at the disposal of students, teachers and institutions, in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French.
