"Innovation in Education" explores the work of 16 pioneers around the world who have developed new, effective approaches to education that work at scale. These pioneers are almost all drawn from applicants for awards from the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE). By tracing the story of how these pioneering innovations came about, developed, spread and grew to scale, the book aims to raise awareness of why innovation in education is needed, where it comes from and how it can be generated.
