This session runs with:  MOTION Handbook: Tools for Transformative System Change; and Science to Policy Training – Increasing Policy Impact for Transformation.

Each project will have 10 minutes pitch with 30 minutes of Q&A. 

This project proposed the design of a model for the transformation of the learning environments of Bogotá’s public schools for science, technology and innovation. The model proposes to transform learning environments from the governance of digital transformation processes in public schools. The public schools of the city have made a lot of progress around the digital field (Saber Digital Program), now, the actors of the educational community have developed the potential to transform their own learning environments from their priorities and specific characteristics. This model proposed that the actors of the educational community (principals, managers, teachers, students, parents, and other actors of the community that surrounds public schools) be transformative actors that guide the transformative change of learning environments.
