Find a way to create solutions which increase the quality and equity of education from an early age on.
The Challenge: Every child’s potential unlocked
With Stedelijk Onderwijs Antwerpen
Innovating compulsory education has proven a tough beast to deal with. Indeed, techno-optimism has paved the road to innovation with solutions that either don’t work or work no better than their analogue counterparts (ie. the teacher) in terms of student progress. How then can we create edtech solutions that increase the quality and equity of compulsory education? Research shows that inequality already starts at nursery school. This is especially true in superdiverse cities where a normal classroom has 25 kids from very different backgrounds. Yet, research also shows that collective teacher efficacy is the number one enabler in education. How then can we use the promise of technology to augment teaching and learning?

About the Education Societal Theme
Millions of children around the world still can’t go to school or have access to deplorably bad education, which is penalising them for life. Even in Europe, we are leaving many behind, with educational inequality remaining high. So join us in building more equitable education that prepares us all for a more knowledge-intensive economy.
