100 Roads is a research and development nonprofit innovating in education. We focus on creating equitable, community-based, learner-centered ecosystems for education on the ground and in the virtual world.
We support founders as they envision and build innovative new models for education. We design learning landscapes, and provide an ecology of services for founders so they can serve their communities better.
100 Roads was started in 2018, after people visiting Workspace Education in Bethel CT showed interest in creating a similar community-based learning environment in their towns.We hosted workshops at Workspace, and once Covid started moved to an online environment where we continue to offer learning experiences and cohort-based courses.
There are very few innovators prototyping community-based learning landscapes for education. All the ingredients for a first-in-class education are now available outside of institutional boundaries. We have a new era, new technology, and the digital tools to live, learn, and work untethered to a place and unlocked from the traditional learning timeline and prescribed content.
Yet, many cling to an old, in many ways broken system, that creates obstacles to unleash the full potential of our youth. We are reinventing space for learning and the ecology of services that resource educational entrepreneurs to bring the best to their communities.
What is Colearning.
At 100 Roads we believe that every child is unique and deserves a radically individualized pathway that unlocks their full potential. We aim to serve the whole child, their family, and create an intergenerational community-based environment in which some of the learning experiences take place. We call this kind of space for learning a colearning community.
We recruit from all over the world to create a global team from many different countries. Our staff is young, passionate, and committed to creating educationalmoptions for all.
