Global non-profit HundrED has just released its fourth annual Global Collection. This report highlights the most impactful and scalable innovations in K12 education – and Tagtiv8 have made the list!
The global education ecosystem has seen remarkable disruption in education this year. Fortunately, there has also been a willingness among educators, parents, and students to embrace new ways of teaching and learning.
2020 is definitely a pivotal moment in the history of education.
This month, internationally renowned education nonprofit HundrED released its fourth Global Collection at its first completely virtual online HundrED Innovation Summit. And Tagtiv8 was one of the innovations recognised in the report.
What is the HundrED Global Collection?
HundrED’s annual Global Collection highlights 100 of the most impactful innovations in K12 education from around the world. The goal is to inspire a movement by helping pedagogically sound, ambitious innovations spread and adapt to multiple contexts across the world. To make this year’s Global Collection, a shortlist of innovations was reviewed by 150 Academy Members consisting of academics, educators, innovators, funders and leaders from over 50 countries. In total, there were 3404 reviews by the Academy based on their impact and scalability. These were then evaluated by HundrED’s Research Team to make the final selection.
Tagtiv8 was chosen due to its unique approach and its potential to create a sustainable impact in education. Tagtiv8 empowers teachers to take the learning beyond the classroom walls. Our Physically Active Learning (PAL) approaches allow children to move and learn in Mathematics, English and other subjects. Research demonstrates that Tagtiv8 impacts positively on academic performances and inactivity levels, crucial in these days of increasingly sedentary lifestyles.
What is the Impact on Tagtiv8?
Bryn Llewellyn, founder of Tagtiv8, said: “Our approaches work – and play – with all children, from Early Years to Key Stage 2, especially those deemed reluctant learners or those who have a fear of certain subjects. During Covid-19, we have been able to support schools across the UK with outdoor learning resources and training.”
“Being offered the opportunity to extend this beyond the UK using HundrED’s platform, a network of global educators and innovators, is amazing. We are really excited to see just how much further our work can be scaled.”
“This is the third time we have been selected for the HundrED Global Collection – a hat trick of awards.” To read about out previous nominations and opportunities to work and play with schools in Helsinki, click here and here.
Who is included in The HundrED 2021 Global Collection?
Saku Tuominen, Chairman & Creative Director of HundrED, said: “Spreading innovations across borders can be a game changer for education, worldwide. We encourage as many stakeholders as possible including schools, educators, administrators, students, and organisations to get involved so that we can work towards a positive future.”
The HundrED 2021 Global Collection is available to download on the HundrED website at no cost. For easy sharing, all innovations are freely available on the HundrED website.
