What are the best ideas out there to innovate our rapidly changing education system? The Lumina Foundation has partnered with Big Think to find them. - The conventional model of innovation involves piloting a product, scaling it, and then mainstreaming it. - However, the Lumina Foundation believes that this model won't work quite so well for education: Instead, rapidly prototyping and iterating different ideas is the likely the best way to create a more equitable education system for our rapidly changing society. - That's why the Lumina Foundation is partnering with entrepreneurs with innovative ideas to improve our education system through Lumina Impact Ventures, and why Big Think is helping them find the best ideas about the future of learning and work. - You can see the winners of the Lumina Prize here: https://bigthink.com/Lumina-Foundatio... – Congratulations to PeerForward and Greater Commons!
