Crowdsourcing education creating room for the unusual suspects
Chris is director at Kennisland. She talks about her journey in guiding people to start new schools. Innovation is at the heart of her story, and her life. Along with the city of Amsterdam, Kennisland facilitated the Amsterdam Education Challenge, aimed at finding and founding innovative school projects. The response was overwhelming and the 175 ideas on the website, the 124 people responding to submit a plan and the 30.000 people who cast their votes on the website show that education is in her words: “hot”. Four new schools have now started on the basis of this process.
