In a nutshell

When is it ?

This experience lasts 2 weeks, from May 2nd to May 13th , with a daily dedication of 1-2 hours per participant. Teams organize themselves as they wish.

Where is it ?

100% online, which allows participants from all over the world to come together. Our platform makes the collaboration easy.

What is it ?

A global event where school innovators from all over the world come together to imagine and prototype innovative solutions for their school of the future.

Who can participate ?

Teams of students and educators interested in accelerating innovation at their schools, school innovation coaches, school leaders and education thought leaders

Why such an event ?

A strong desire for change...

In countless schools around the world, open-minded educators and school leaders wonder how to shape the learning experience at their schools in line with the challenges and needs of learners facing a new future.

... but a lack of means

There is little readily available experience on how to successfully conduct the innovation and change process in a school. And conversations take place almost exclusively on a national basis.

Our main goals

Bring together a global community of school innovators

Exchange international best practices in managing change in schools

Dynamize the adoption of new learning models

SCHOOL TEAMS

You can absolutely participate! The main events will be in English, but they also will be recorded and auto-translated. While working on your challenge, you can work in your language of choice. We will also try to assign you a mentor who speaks the local language. And your final video submission can be in the original language with English subtitle. 
 

If you work at a school but can’t gather a team right now, it is possible to participate individually; in this case we will team you up with other participants from other countries. This was the case for many teams of the 2020 edition and proved very enriching for all.

Teams should not contain more than 6 members. However you are welcome to sign up a second team if you want to.

All collective events are recorded and you can view them whenever suits you. You only have to coordinate suitable timeslots to work with your team.

 –  During the Sprint about 1-2 hours per day on average, total 10-15 hours per participant over two weeks
 –  Preparation: 2-3 hours
 – 
Debrief and next steps: 1-2 hours

We encourage to involve 1-2 learners, for instance engaged student representatives at your school, directly in your team so to work from all perspectives. If this proves difficult, there is also the possibility for punctual involvement of learners, e.g. during the “explore” step (interview the in order to get their voices), “ideate” (call for ideas), or “try” (test your concept with them).

Yes, it’s the whole point of (re)School to foster cross-fertilization. Among others, there will be pedagogic, technology and process experts available for you to join one of your team sessions and provide feedback. And we will match you with one or several other school teams working on a similar topic. You can also reach out proactively to any member of the international community through our platform.

You can find details on the contribution here.

The main objective of this contribution is tu ensure commitment from school teams, which is why we encourage you to contribute with an amount that you can afford.

INNOVATION COACHES

It’s really up to you! Highly recommended you participate in one of the two briefing sessions for coaches and thought leaders in the week of April 25th.
Coaching a school team shouldn’t take you more than 2 or 3 hours in total.

All other activities are optional for you, based on your availability: you can facilitate a cross-fertilization session among schools, give sparkling input or be part of the Jury. And you are of course invited to the key events
