Organizations Disrupting Learning and Education

As I'm exploring the world of education, I'm discovering the innovators in this space and I must admit, I'm impressed! Until recently, my core focus was tech and startups, since I had founded a tech startup and raised venture capital back in 2012.

These organizations are very different and most of them are not innovating through edtech. They are basically designing new learning experiences and education models.

They try to solve the problems of education by re-framing the approach most schools take today, changing the priorities and the roles of people inside schools, as well as the operational processes. Many of the following organizations also focus on developing content and curating existing content for helping teachers bring those innovations in the classroom.

So check them out! I will be updating this list frequently and every time I add more than 5 or 10 new organizations, I'll send it through the newsletter. Subscribe here by the way.
