CURRIKI is a wonderful site that gives Teachers the opportunity to get in touch with other colleagues in order to share experiences about the use of different resources to enrich the Teaching Learning Process. It is so helpful to find different and interesant free resources for us, as Teachers from a foreign country to use. M. A. Margarita R. Ruiz, Tech Coordinator, Instituto D'Amicis, A.

Curriki has been a great resource for quality instructional materials for my staff. The vast amount of resources that cover K-12 and all content areas is incredible! Teachers have been able to find lesson plans, supplementary videos, graphic organizers, and more to support their instruction. They also have used it to share their own instructional materials with each other as part of their professional learning community.

I work in curriculum development, and Curriki is one of the sources I use to locate free content I can use. Curriki has a lot of content, and I can usually find what I need.

Curriki has thousands of resources on a variety of subjects. I am currently watching the finance videos. I recommend the site all the time to my friends who are looking for content to help explain a particular subject to their children.

I found CURRIKI by linking through from California websites in my ongoing exploration about helping schools. I am planning on providing any member of the organization with a free schoodl. I noticed that there is so much information on the site that I will add it as a link to a charter school we are developing in Vallejo, CA.

Curriki offers a huge wealth of material for educators who want free content and ideas to support teaching in the classroom and online.

I wanted to help another educator explore the use of podcasts and connected him with a great array of resources contributed by a Curriki member.

The web site runs too slowly and seems somewhat disjointed.

I am principal of a primary division at an international school in India. I have shared curriki with my faculty so they can turn to it to help make their lessons more interesting, more interactive, more currently topical. International education is making inroads into Asia and Africa, and curriki is a most wonderful tool to help teachers who don't have access to professional development, who have been trained with provincial resources, to open their world, and the world of their students. I love curriki.
