October 30th, 2017
The Green Educator Course, has been announced by global education non-profit HundrED, as one of its 100 innovative education projects across the world, all of which have been gathered over the past two years.
HundrED aims to share inspiring ideas and projects across borders to help improve the future of education globally. To achieve this, a team of researchers investigated innovations from around the world to determine 100 projects that are changing the face of education. The innovations were identified through research, events and recommendations; over 700 projects were evaluated based on their originality, impact and scalability.
Green Educator Course was chosen due to its unique pioneering status and ability to create a scalable impact. Green Educator Course was initiated in 2013 and the program aims to brings together like-minded educators from around the world with interests in progressing education in our changing environmental, social, and economic global landscape. The main focus of this five-days immersive program is to learn about holistic learning & incorporating “IRespect” values into their own curriculum (Integrity, Responsibility, Empathy, Sustainability, Peace, Equality, Community, Trust) as what Green School has done.
Sanne van Ooort , the program coordinator at Green School said: “We’re so pleased to have been selected as one of HundrED’s 100 global innovations. The project was created to ensure teachers are able to engage learners, and improve outcomes. Being offered the opportunity to extend this beyond Indonesia using the HundrED platform is amazing and we are excited to see just how much further the project can be scaled.”
The selected 100 projects cover various fields of education from learning environments and holistic wellbeing to collaborative learning and game-based education, as well as a range of themes including small teacher-led practices, ambitious not-for-profit initiatives, viral edtech products and unique whole school models.
Saku Tuominen, creative director of HundrED, said: Green Educator Course clearly stood out to us as a project that needed to be shared with the world. Being able to showcase these innovations marks the beginning of a drive to get all teachers involved in revolutionising education. We will continue to encourage as many schools and organisations as possible to get involved so that we can work towards a positive future”.
To share the projects, HundrED has created an online platform so that educators around the world can trial and review Green Educator Course and all the other innovations using the resources, for free. To explore the global innovations, please visit: www.hundred.org
