Best education ideas sought

5/19/2011 6:00:00 PM
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today launched the HMH Global Education Challenge.  HMH created the Challenge to rally innovators worldwide to share creative ideas that address the issues inhibiting student achievement and identify solutions that foster change by affecting one of three key areas: student learning, family engagement and teacher effectiveness. These could include ideas for anything from a new software tool or mobile app, to a service for students, parents or teachers, to a completely new educational technology.
Using the Global Education Challenge platform, educators, thought leaders, parents — and anyone interested in improving global education systems — can engage in conversation about education issues, submit ideas, comment and vote on other submissions and build upon ideas submitted by others. Community voting and commenting will help drive the most promising ideas to the top of the stack. Entries will be evaluated by the judges based on uniqueness, impact, and adaptability.
HMH will be giving a total of $250,000 in total cash and prizes as part of the Global Education Challenge, including a $100,000 cash prize for the winning entrant and $25,000 for second place.
