We aim to improve the world school by school
Our mission is to help children everywhere in the world benefit from an innovative approach that provides personalised education for all.
We want to help shape a new model of education and learning for the 21st century.
We accompany participants on a path of group learning and interactive processes.
We seek alternative ways to lead and empower the educational community to be the prime movers of their own transformation.
We provide open knowledge
We provide valuable open knowledge in a variety of formats deliverable to society, politicians, and educational institutions.
We believe in the benefits of networks
We build bridges by mapping and bringing together different agents. Fostering relationships, activities and projects that have a positive impact on the educational field.
How did Escuela21 start?
In 2013, Alfredo Hernando created the Escuela21 project, a laboratory of educational innovation that travels the world with the goal of identifying, communicating, and replicating the best international practices to be found at the leading innovative schools.
It is a journey that over the past few years has granted him a set of singular experiences with more than 100 teams of teachers from all the continents. From Montevideo to San Francisco, from Denmark to Sydney… He has set in motion networks, projects, publications, and comprehensive accompaniment programs at schools while sharing, discussing, building, and learning via networks and online.
His book, ‘Journey to a 21st Century Education’, with more than a million downloads, has become a key work to addressing the improvement of educational quality.
