Mission
Learn More aims to improve the quality of education, working on our clients' learning journeys and developing our own.
Personal and socio-economic development depends increasingly on investment in learning journeys within formal education systems, the workplace and beyond. Renewed interest in education reform, the increased expectation of lifelong learning (LLL) and unprecedented investment globally are direct results of this.

As these pressures grow, our understanding of what learning is must broaden. Indeed, for public and private sector investment in education to be well-directed, we need to think of any interaction as a learning journey – be it a fifth-grade science class, a movie, a consulting project, or a boardroom meeting.
Our name, Learn More, is a recognition of this, as well as an aspiration:

For children – the direct beneficiaries of most traditional learning
For adults – who embark on learning journeys with us
For ourselves – as a reminder that every project we undertake is an opportunity to learn
Learn More aims to improve the quality of learning journeys in two ways:

1. Our boutique consultancy helps improve our clients’ learning journeys
2. Our innovation shop aims to pilot and scale our own radical, new learning journeys

Rigorous, evidence-driven analysis
Experience has shown us that educating is the world’s most consequential and complex job. If we believe learning to be the driver of development, then teachers should be treated as professionals on par with doctors and lawyers. For this reason, our innovation shop focuses on initiatives that promote teacher empowerment. We also include at least one current or former teacher on all project teams, to guarantee the quality of our own work.
Research shows that the quality of the teacher-learner relationship is the most important determining factor in learning outcomes. We think of relationships as a key variable in all our research and design work. The learning journeys we develop through our innovation shop are centred on relationship-building.
On average, children spend only 10% of their time in the classroom. Most learning occurs outside, through interactions with peers, adults, and media. As adults, we continue to learn, but almost entirely outside the classroom. We account for this in our research, and only design and convene learning journeys that involve all types of education: creative, experiential, inductive and deductive.
The fastest learning, the most insightful collaboration, and the most effective projects occur by involving people with different backgrounds. Matching creatives with data scientists, or teachers with policy specialists is key to crafting our most impactful learning journeys. Our large network of consultants allows us to convene hybrid teams rapidly and in line with client expectations.
Data-driven analysis is key to designing and delivering learning journeys that work. Our research and design projects leverage rigorous statistical techniques and proprietary algorithms.
We leverage econometrics, machine learning, and probabilistic thinking to understand and analyse how education works.

Our Story
Our Story
Learn More was founded in 2016 by Lorenzo Newman, a former teacher and management consultant, and Bonaventura Pacileo, an OECD-PISA statistician. We are a diverse collective of academics, data scientists, designers, and consultants, with experience working on complex education projects for private, public, and third sector clients globally.

During 2017, we focused on delivering consulting projects for key organisations within the education sector, including the OECD, Powering Impact, Interpeace, the Varkey Foundation, and others.

2018 will see Learn More grow as an innovation shop, designing and delivering transformative learning journeys for teachers and learners of all backgrounds. We are also continuing to develop our consulting business, engaging in larger and more ambitious projects for clients such as the Red Cross and Action Against Hunger.
