The AKF-led Schools2030 programme is delighted to globally launch the free, open-source HCD Toolkit, which aims to equip educators across 1000 schools with foundational design skills and tools to amplify their work & improve the learning outcomes of students.
To celebrate this pivotal moment in the lifespan of Schools2030, a short documentary feature film went live on 26th July as a side event at Global Partnership for Education Summit (28-29th July 2021).
“The Schools2030 HCD Toolkit will help teachers and educators across the globe reclaim the discourse about ‘what works’ for improving the holistic learning outcomes of their students in some of the most challenging contexts in the world”
Dr Bronwen Magrath
Schools2030 Global Programme Manager
The film introduces global audiences to the transformative world of Schools2030 and its mission to help give teachers and school communities the tools they need to become education innovators. It also gives viewers the opportunity to learn more about Schools2030, Human-Centred Design and the Toolkit up close: who and what is Schools2030; what is HCD and why do we use it; who is behind the creation of the Toolkit; how will we transform our collective approach to education; and how will the Toolkit engage schools, CSOs and governments in a classroom-driven design process that can catalyse positive change.

We hope you enjoy the film!
