How to Participate in Our Community
If you would like to contribute resources to our community, post to our discussion forum. Resources for educators are welcome and I am particularly interested in listing specific projects for students and teachers. I prefer that initiatives be posted by representatives of the organization offering the opportunity so that community members can contact organizers. Please also share resources on Twitter using the hashtag #globaled20.
Thanks for reading — Lucy
