The book, which is the second volume of the Collection “Innovemos,” is the result of the analysis of and reflection upon a series of innovative experiences in several Latin American countries that address the cultural context of students with educational relevancy and offer an education oriented toward knowledge, understanding, and dialog among different cultures.

The contribution of the experiences lies in the recognition and value given to students’ and communities’ ethnic and cultural diversity as a starting point for the development of new learning and the affirmation of identity.

The book was written by Carolina Hirmas, a professional of the Latin American and Caribbean Educational Innovation Network. The network is part of UNESCO’s Regional Education Office for Latin America and the Caribbean.
