Our values

We want to contribute to the creation of the new education and learning paradigm for the 21st century.

We learn together

We accompany the participants through collective learning and the participatory processes.

We empower

We look for a different way to lead and empower the educational community to be agents of their own transformation.

We offer the open knowledge

We generate an open knowledge of value in different deliverable formats to the society, the political class, and the educational institutions.

We believe in the value of the network

We create bonds through the mapping and union of actors to assist relationships, actions, and proposals with a positive impact on the educational field.


How does Escuela21 start?

In 2013, Alfredo Hernando created the Escuela21 project, a laboratory of educational innovation that travels around the world with the goal of identifying, communicating, and replicating the best international practices in the most innovative schools.

A journey that has taken him to enrich himself during the past few years from experiences together with more than 100 teams of teachers from all continents. From Montevideo to San Francisco, from Denmark to Sidney… He has generated networks, projects, publications, and dynamics to accompany schools while sharing, dialoguing, building, and learning in network and online.

His book, ‘Journey to the 21st Century Education’, with more than a million of downloads, has become a model to address the improvement of educational quality.
