Partnerships

Education can be transformed in various ways. We have solutions to the different demands.

One of our main interests is to go into partnership with those who wish to improve and update education with modern resources. Therefore, we have adapted different arrangements of cooperation that are suitable for both education entrepreneurs and schools using the PBL method, other innovative methodologies and those on the way to innovation.

A partner can use the Lumiar methodology in different ways: by opening a Lumiar School; by licensing the methodology so it can be used in a school that has another name; by creating a Lumiar contractor in a school that uses another methodology; or by using our Mosaic Curriculum to manage the activities of schools that use Project-based Learning or Competency-based Education.

In all of these options, Lumiar offers training and support, as well as curriculum matrices customization based on each partner’s context. See in detail:

 

Full Lumiar

This option is for those who want to open a complete and independent Lumiar school, making use of the brand and receiving team training with on-site and virtual support for pedagogy and school routines. It is the ideal choice for those who want to start a school from scratch while maintaining independence in business.

We already have partnerships in this format in Porto Alegre, Poços de Caldas and Stowford, England. Our latest partner, Grupo Atmo, opens Lumiar Pinheiros (in the city of São Paulo) next year. The school will be able to attend 500 students of kindergarten and Elementary School 1 and 2.

 

“Powered by Lumiar”

This format is excellent for existing schools and professionals with prior education background experience. The idea is to maintain the school’s name, but the partner is allowed to use Lumiar tools and methodology. It’s a way to help the community recognize that the school is preserving its history while embracing an innovative and recognized methodology.

The school Key Academy, located in Lagos, Nigeria, is one of those that embraced Powered Lumiar. The school’s founder, Damilola Okonkwo, chose to use all the pillars of the Lumiar methodology. In order to do so, her team received training and pedagogical support. The school remains with its original brand and the name Lumiar is used to indicate the partnership.

Digital Mosaic

Our digital platform allows learning management from planning and evaluation modules. It is in the Digital Mosaic that the assessment of skills and knowledge take place. In addition, the mosaic offers systematic monitoring of the individual and unique path of each student, enabling a true customization of learning.

The Digital Mosaic is ideal for schools using integrated assessment, project-based learning (PBL) or competency-based education (CBE).  The Real School, in Budapest, is an example of that. Its board of education has adopted our platform as a tool to replicate in Hungary the pedagogical proposal of the famous Green School, a school located in Bali whose methodology integrates traditional content with environmental and experiential learning, centered on the individual student learning. Real School uses the Digital Mosaic to monitor and evaluate skills and abilities learned in the process.

Another example is the independent school located in Colorado, USA, called Vail Mountain School, that also offers access to the Digital Mosaic to those students who look for competency-based learning. These students follow the university preparatory curriculum, but also have the alternative of an innovative methodology. It is a school pilot within a school.

 

Lumiar After School

Designed for schools that want to offer innovative education after school. The Lumiar After School is arranged for the needs of each school. Plus, the pedagogical implementation and training are also customized.
