Inspiring educators to find and share what works

Sevenzo is a space where educators can openly exchange promising practice, translate that practice into personal action, and test that practice in a safe environment with the support of other like-minded people.

Build Community.

We bring people like you into an online conversation around issues that matter to young people.

Find Bright Spots.

We crowdsource promising approaches and work with educators to turn them into recipes others can try.

Share What Works.

We run programs that support educators to try out and adapt those promising approaches to their own context.

We challenge our community to come together around issues that deeply impact young people's ability to learn and thrive.
 Our challenges go through four phases:

1. Share Insights

Share your thinking about why solving the challenge is important for our students and find inspiration in other's stories.

2. Contribute Bright Spots

Share what you or others are already doing that's solving the challenge for students.

3. Develop Recipes

Co-design recipes that will bring the selected bright spots to life in other places.

4. Implement & Share

Try out and refine the bright spots with other peers and share your implementation stories!

Our Community

It takes a village to tackle the most challenging barriers to young people’s ability to learn and thrive. As such, we welcome all educators including classroom teachers, teacher leaders, coaches, administrators, support staff and out of school mentors into this online community.

  Teachers love to share ideas, especially when those ideas better the lives and learning of our students. My experience is now radically changing the culture of our school and all of our students in it.

  This process includes an honest exchange of feedback around the designed solution with the user...that’s when you can truly implement a solution that will solve a problem. This process taught me how to be more effective in bringing about change.

  The recipes are important. Teachers do this all the time with differentiation. Teachers need to make things relevant for their setting but shouldn't be reinventing the wheel each time.

  What prompted me to apply was that it was led by educators for educators. I especially enjoyed connecting with other educators who weren't necessarily in my network.
