Background of co-organiser
Ednovators is a charitable platform in Hong Kong working collaboratively with education practitioners and tri-sector pioneers to catalyze innovations in education.
Founded in 2015 by a group of Hong Kong educators, creative practitioners as well education and social entrepreneurs, Ednovators has clear goals in education innovations which aims to co-create and foster a more student-centric learning environment for a younger generation in the 21st century and beyond.
Ednovators strives for practical innovations in education. Through collaboration with education and tri-sector pioneers, we call for an enabling learning environment for students who develop and learn in different ways and at a different pace, as well as nurture change makers for innovations in education.
Jockey Club ‘Ednovation Fest’ (‘the Fest’) is a pioneer showcase of local and global innovations in education. Year-round events include seminars and panel discussions led by local and overseas scholars and social and education pioneers, workshops and incubation programs, which aim to catalyze education innovations.
By exhibiting local and global innovation in schools with teachers and students, the Fest facilitates dialogues between schools and tri-sector pioneers to co-create betterment in education through innovations.
This year’s theme is “Unite and Reinvent Education!”. The Fest calls for more collaborations to catalyze innovations in education in response to the changing needs in and for the 21st century and beyond. The three focuses of Ednovation Fest are: Learning Diversity, Multiple Pathways, and Teaching & Learning Innovation.
To address learning diversity, ‘上課不一樣: 教學研習室’ gathered teaching teams from 5 local schools. They participated in Design Thinking workshops to rediscover, imagine, design and experiment education innovations that advocate diverse learner needs. We hope these teaching teams will lead the schools to bring favourable changes to their students.
