By Janet Pinto, Chief Academic Officer, Curriki
Curriki’s community is as large as the globe and as small as a 1-to-1 connection. It is a vibrant online community for exceptional educators, decision-makers, and influencers who are on the leading edge of innovation in education. It is also a community for students to collaborate with each other as well as their teachers.
Curriki provides an easy and intuitive collaborative platform that includes personal profiles, blogs, discussions, and resource sharing. Communities (groups) can be created and linked for closer collaboration. Currently there are over 800 groups on Curriki.
Curriki groups allow teachers and administrators to share best practices and information on what’s working, and to support each other across schools, districts, states, the country – even around the world.
Any Curriki member can create or join a group to create a personal learning network or professional learning community to make it easier to collaborate and share ideas.
• Groups can be public or private.
• Private groups are entirely private and secure.
• Share files easily in a shared resource library.
Schools and districts can create professional learning communities and practice groups, in order to improve teacher and principal quality and technology skills, and to provide mentoring and support.
In the higher education community, colleges can use edWeb.net to support their teacher education programs and to stay connected to cohorts of new teachers as they move on to their teaching positions and begin their careers. Faculty in any department can use edWeb.net to connect with peers anywhere in the world.
Curriki provides this same sense of community for K-12 education professionals around the world. Curriki welcomes all professionals in education (including higher education) and creates a new communication channel for educators, associations, legislators, community leaders, and companies to break down traditional barriers and promote broader collaboration.
Curriki is free for professionals in education, educational institutions, parents, and students.
We hope you enjoy being a member of Curriki. Our goal is to create a professional social network that serves your needs, is easy to use, and flexible to adjust to your communication preferences. Check out our groups, and join one or more today. Or start a new one!
