"We are going through an era of change in which it is needed as never before for the educational community to create networks able to inspire, in which students can learn actively and motivated and, and families get involved so that schools don’t become estranged between four walls. Driving efforts for collaboration, creativity and entrepreneurship capable to instil values and initiative to experience knowledge hands-on."

"It is a privilege to have the responsability to influence the lives of hundreds of people. Kids and citizens of today who are destined to write the future story of our society. It is a big challenge which, in spite of the hardships, we must approach in an inclusive way focusing our efforts on our students to make them better citizens. Love, dedication and infinite reward."

“The investment and faith in education must be resounding. Even more when we consider that while only 20% of our population is comprised of students, they represent 100% of our future. Let us guarantee that these 20%, who will go on to work jobs that don’t exist yet, are adecuately prepared for this ever-changing society.”

"From a very early age, our students are already agents of change, active members and content creators within a connected society. They emulate what they see. One of the challenges of the 21st century school is to turn its students into active participants able to see the need to replicate within a connected society the values we instil in them in the classroom. This is one of our main missions as #realinfluencers."

"Our goal with this campaign is to reaffirm the importance of teachers in today's society. The future belongs to the coming generations and, in turn, their future lies in the hands of their teachers and educators. These are the #realinfluencers. The time has come for them to get the recognition they deserve."

"No educational system can be better than its students, as states Andreas Schleicher, OECD’s Education Director. As such, we must recognize and honour the teachers’ work so that the best students may, in turn, choose to enter a career in teaching and be recognized themselves by society. In order to achieve this we need intrinsic and extrinsic motivations. Our education system is good but it could be better."

“As teachers we drive change in education. It is up to us to cooperate in order for our students to feel motivated and inspired by more significant, experience-based and real learning.”

“As teachers we must focus on real golas and prepare our students for the job market. Help them find their creativity and innovation. Such is our responsability and we should be recognized for that effort.”

"Technology needs to be in the classroom as it is in any other social context. It is inevitable and it makes no sense avoiding it. It should, however, always be handled as a tool and not an end in itself.  The much touted catchphrase 'teachers need to change their teaching ways' is a lie that, no matter how often repeated, will never become true. No one should be schooled in what they're already proficient. Technology is a tool which may benefit the teacher's job daily, not necesarilly innovating but rather adapting it to the inherent reality."
