About the event

Wednesday, November 4th we will meet in the LearnCentral public Elluminate room at 6:00pm Pacific / 9:00pm Eastern time: https://sas.elluminate.com/d.jnlp?sid=lcevents&password=Webinar_Guest

Curriki is a not-for-profit organization where all of us -- our community of educators, parents and students -- can work together to develop interesting, creative and effective educational materials that the global educational community can use for free.
Our goal is to:
  • Develop curriculum through community contributors
  • Deliver the curriculum globally
  • Determine the impact by project and by individual
The initial focus is on K-12 curricula in the areas of mathematics, science, technology, reading and language arts, and languages.
