The Future of Education Today

For 10 years, EDC has brought educators, school leaders, and experts together around Latin America and the Caribbean to co-design solutions to the real-world problems affecting their learning communities.

We have co-created with stakeholders:

Our philosophy is that by bringing teachers and school leaders together to share their on the ground expertise, sharing cutting-edge information about teaching, learning, and leading and providing orientation by topic experts we can solve any education problem and improve the quality of learning for all students.  

Our new and exciting Global Student Projects bring students from around the globe together to solve real-world problems. Students learn to analyze information, share and learn from others and experts, and design solutions to problems like animal welfare in zoos and farms, the social and ecological impact of clothes making, moving an asteroid, preventing the mutation and transmission of illness.
