During the invite-only HundrED Innovation Summit there will also be a focus on new funding support for innovators

In a commitment to help K12 innovations spread across borders, HundrED.org, a Finnish education nonprofit, today announced its third annual HundrED Innovation Summit, which will bring together 250 inspiring educators, innovators and education funders from 04-08 November.

At the event,  HundrED will also release its third global innovation collection, HundrED 2020, highlighting 100 of the brightest innovations in K12 education from around the world. 

Shortlisted by HundrED’s research team and Academy Members comprising of over 100 global education experts including teachers, leaders, academics, and students who have expertise in a range of contexts and perspectives in education, each of these innovations have been evaluated based on their impact and scalability.

 This year, HundrED 2020 includes representatives from every continent, all of whom have already demonstrated the validity and impact of their ideas with an average presence in over 10 countries.

Responding to HundrED’s Innovators Funding Needs For Education Innovations report released earlier this year,  the organization will also release its first, global Education Funders Collection at the Summit.

The Collection highlights both for- profit and not-for-profit organizations who are investing in K12 education initiatives and demonstrate a shared passion for helping children flourish in today’s world. The data collection consists of funders’ target groups and regions, funding strategies, and an outline of their investment criteria. 

Lasse Leponiemi, Executive Director and Co-Founder of HundrED, said:
“It’s remarkable that the third biggest investment source for education innovations is self-funding. The innovators highlighted in our HundrED 2020 collection are so passionate about the future of education that they are willing to pay for their own efforts,”. “We hope the first-ever Education Funders Collection will encourage more venture capital, grant-giving and donations to provide opportunities for these inspiring global innovations to scale up and positively impact even more students and teachers around the world”The HundrED Innovation Summit is renowned for providing an opportunity for education leaders and teachers to share best practices, celebrate and increase collaboration by spreading leading pedagogies and the latest education innovations around the world.The Summit program is also scheduled to bring leading experts like Li Andersson, Minister of Education in Finland (Left Alliance); John Goodwin, Chief Executive Officer of the Lego Foundation; Teresa Lin, Chief Executive Officer at Sayling Wen Cultural & Educational Foundation; together with a group of youth ambassadors to foster youth engagement and leadership and discuss education’s potential and how education leaders and students can drive positive change together.

Saku Tuominen, Chairman & Creative Director of HundrED, said:
“While we are very proud of the work we are doing, just recognizing these incredible innovations is not enough, we also need to help them spread. “If we are going to give every child access to the best possible innovations by 2030, we need to help bring our innovators, funders, educators and children to the same decision-making table.”At the Summit, the organisation will also launch HundrED Connect, a platform providing exclusive and complimentary access to like-minded and engaged  global innovators, implementers, advisors, educators, and funders. Each funding organisation from the Funders Collection will be featured on the platform and will include information on target benefactors and regions, investment themes, support structures offered by funders, average grant amounts, and the eligibility criteria. This new platform is HundrED’s way of creating a valuable global education network that helps innovations grow and spread!

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

FE News publish exclusive peer to peer thought leadership articles from our feature writers, as well as user generated content across our network of over 3000 Newsrooms, offering multiple sources of the latest education news across the Education and Employability sectors.

FE News also broadcast live events, podcasts with leading experts and thought leaders, webinars, video interviews and Further Education news bulletins so you receive the latest developments in Skills News and across the Apprenticeship, Further Education and Employability sectors.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
