We are a group of active educators sharing our everyday experiences in the classroom. We share news, trends, research, ideas, and technologies that shape the future of learning. We support teaching through professional development, thought leadership, and resource curation.
We believe that education should not be a privilege; it is essential to the survival of the human race. Our vision is to transform learning into a world of creativity, collaboration, communication and inspiration; to innovate education through the growth and development of innovative teachers. We do this by providing teachers with a professional platform from which they can be heard, and by giving them access to resources that are meaningful for any classroom.
Here are some tokens of recognition for our contribution to the education cause:
Charities We Support

People living in or close to poverty know how to improve their own communities and how to best meet the needs of their children. Local teachers know better than anyone what will improve their schools, and all these people are lacking is the means to do it. Namely, money. Poverty isn’t a lack of character, it’s a lack of cash. The No Barriers Foundation works to empower local people by giving them the money to solve their own problems and improve their own communities. They carry out checks beforehand to prevent any mismanagement, and then approach schools and ask them what they need and give them the money to do it. If it’s hiring a teacher, fixing a roof, installing wifi or building toilets, they are there to help.
Room to Read believes that world change starts with educated children. They envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world. Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, they develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond.
Founded in 1988, Books for Africa (BFA) collects, sorts, ships, and distributes books to children in Africa. Their goal is to end the book famine in Africa. Books donated by publishers, schools, libraries, individuals, and organizations are sorted and packed by volunteers who carefully choose books that are age and subject appropriate. Since 1988, Books For Africa has shipped more than 41 million books to every African country. They are on once-empty library shelves, in classrooms in rural schools, and in the hands of children who have never before held a book. Each book will be read over and over again. When the books arrive, they go to those who need them most: children who are hungry to read, hungry to learn, hungry to explore the world in ways that only books make possible.
