Curriki is an online community for creating and sharing K12 open source curricula, a resource that can help provide a low-cost and innovative solution to many of our teaching and learning challenges in districts and schools.

Curriki is a social entrepreneurship organization that supports the development and free distribution of open source educational materials to improve education worldwide.  The online community gives teachers, students and parents universal access to peer-reviewed K-12 curricula and powerful online collaboration tools.

More than just a collection of educational resources, Curriki supports schools and school districts by helping them:

3. Innovate at All Levels - Curriki connects principals and districts to a community of innovative educational professionals from around the world 

4. Manage Valuable Knowledge - Curriki ensures that even if teachers leave the system, their knowledge is still available for use in schools

URLwire has helped quality web content gain attention, links, and publicity for over 15 years. URLwire was established in 1994 as a private and discreet service to announce meritiorious Web content to the exact trusted influencers who care about it. URLwire is free to all subscribers. URLwire is not a bulk press release distribution service, and will never be automated.  It is sent by Eric Ward, one at a time, to people who look forward to it. URLwire has thousands of private email subscribers, and I also publish URLwire in several other formats including RSS and Twitter. Why am I still doing this after all these years?  Here's a quote that sums it up. 

"Eric knows quality web content, and he knows how to reach out and publicize 
it politely, personally, privately. When we see an email from Eric, we read 
it and regularly link to the sites he sends us." --Library of Congress
