It is a thrill to be able to communicate the curriculum topics of ecosystems, biodiversity and evolution through this course. This will not only support what they study at school, but also inform them as global citizens of the future.

Itza at EdTechX Summit 2022 

​Next month, Itza will be attending the annual EdTechX Summit, back for the first time since Covid, at London’s Tobacco Docks. We’re thrilled to be joining the world’s leading thinkers, teachers and technologists at the cutting edge of digital learning. Join us over the coming editions as we share exclusive insights from the event and our takes on what’s new and next.

Reinforcement learning: Not Just for AI

At Itza, we know all about the power of ‘reinforcement learning’ - but it’s just as powerful for humans as it is for machines. We help our learners develop deep knowledge through a scaffolded learning approach, which uses continuous positive reinforcement (through prizes and accreditation, like our Agent of Change badge, and our currency Yakka) to help them build confidence and take risks. We think it’s a winning formula that prepares students today for the world of work tomorrow. We loved McKinsey’s use of ‘reinforcement learning’ to train the AI that’s transforming everything from how they hire to how they design.

Attention Teachers:
Join the Future Cities project!

Encourage your students to submit their Future Cities Project and win a trip to Switzerland!


ITZA and the Villars Institute are teaming up to offer five Agents of Change a chance to attend the Villars Symposium in Switzerland. 


The Villars Institute is a non-profit foundation committed to accelerating the transition to a net zero and nature-positive economy through intergenerational collaboration and systems leadership. At the symposium, located in the Swiss Alps, young climate leaders will work with experienced professionals to learn valuable skills, tools, and techniques for driving rapid and effective systemic change.


The Institute will cover all travel and accommodation expenses for the three selected Agents of Change, who will be accompanied by a nominated teacher or ITZA staff member.
