My granddaughter had an optional Halloween project assigned from her teacher. I wanted to find something that was inspiring, creative and would get her excited about working on another project! I went to Curriki and found lesson plans, projects and book references to support the project. I was surprised how easy it was to find. I sorted by subject and grade level was able to find several options for us to pursue. She brought the completed project into her classroom with "props" as suggested and she told me everyone had fun with her pumpkin project. Thank you Curriki. Looks like I am a cool grandmother!

I went to Curriki to find math activities and a reading list for summer for my granddaughter who is starting kindergarten. While there are many on line learning apps, I wanted to also have some resources that we could do together as activities. I found many links to resources that were valuable and could not find any where else. I was able to download them and print them. I also found an excellent reading list. It made our summer time together more interactive, fun and educational!

Curriki is a wonderful Open Education Resource for educators anywhere. Curriki provides free lessons and resources on a wide variety of topics. Users have the ability to search for resources by content area or grade level. Once found, resources can be save in individual teacher collections. In addition, users have the ability to share resources by uploading items. One of the greatest strengths of Curriki is the large number of resources that are available. When looking for ways to supplement my lessons, I have been able to find applicable, easy to use resources in very little time, thanks to the extensive Curriki network.

Curriki and the team behind it are an inspiration to me - a brilliantly simple idea well executed through intelligence, grit, and good old-fashioned hard work. Theirs is a story of sticking with something they believed in, often in the face of great challenges, giving the gift of learning to children around the world through their free teaching and learning community. I've been so impressed with their model and approach and look forward to seeing what this dynamic team will do next.

For so many reasons, teaching is extraordinarily complex and challenging. And opportunities for teachers to share with and learn from their colleagues are crucial to helping all children get an excellent education. When a teacher shares their best lessons, worksheets, activities, projects, curricula with the Curriki library, they are helping countless teachers help their students…year after year. I vote Curriki into the top 5 teaching and learning sites available today!

As a grandparent with 4 grandchildren ages, 13, 9 , 6 and 5, I love using Curriki! When we are together often after school, we talk about what they are learning, if they are having trouble in a subject or sometimes just about their homework. I look for resources on Curriki that we can do together. My grandkids like having something to work on that supplements what they are assigned and learning. Sometimes we even look together and they pick out a project. Thank you Curriki and keep adding high quality, fun resources for all ages!

As a teacher, I can attest that we all crave the tools and resources to help our students succeed. Very often, I that existing instructional websites are inadequate, too enormous or inaccurate. What I want is a one-stop shop for the resources I need, those that are teacher-tested and do not have hidden costs. Curriki addresses all of that with a system that categorizes teacher-created resources by grade level, subject and type of resource, such as video or lesson plan, and it is completely free of charge. It is so easy to find what I need – and fast!

Curriki has been a wonderful resource for my child's high school GT program. I passed it on as a resource and they have used Curriki OER in a number of ways, from encouraging kids involved in the maker movement and studying computer science, to teaching about the US Constitution and, most recently, 911. My teen has also used Curriki resources on her own to reinforce lessons she was having difficulty understanding in algebra.

I have been involved in many non-profits over the years, but Curriki holds a special place for me. I have been "in" the Education Technology industry for 28 years, and being a founder of Curriki is definitely something I consider a career highlight.

The global impact is extraordinary. Curriki, one of the first Open Education Resource communities *ever*, has demonstrated the ability to grow and sustain itself thanks to a number of generous benefactors, as well as demonstrated demand/value reflected by the continued (and growing) number of educators using and contributing to the community today. The staff and Board is dedicated to making a positive impact and greatly appreciates the support Curriki receives from its community members, benefactors, and friends.

When we founded Curriki years ago, we were the first to provide a global site for educators, parents, and students to share, rate, and review teaching and learning materials. Since then, Curriki has been explored by over 13.7 million users from nearly every country on the planet. It is absolutely huge. Through the large network of educators who voluntarily share their lessons, videos, assessments, and more with the entire global education community, this non-profit is chipping away at the huge handicap many under-served schools face--lack of adequate funding to purchase textbooks or digital teaching and learning materials. As co-founder and board member, I have been incredibly impressed with how the organization has thoughtfully and strategically iterated its programs and evolved over the years."

Curriki got the best knowledgebase on their website. You can learn, explore and even teach something that you know with the world beyond your limits. They are amazing and their support is round the clock, I mean if I have an issue or if I am not able to find something they will be right there to help whenever needed. They are not just an organization but a team of educators, intellectuals and researchers. I just love coming back to their website again and again.

I sent my niece to Curriki when she was struggling with chemistry last year and what she found in the Curriki library was so helpful to her. Not only did she find a bunch of videos that helped her understand the concept she was struggling with that week, but throughout the year. She kept returning to the site to get clarification on things that confused her in class and to review for tests! I highly recommend Curriki to students in need of homework help.

In my opinion, teachers could make great use of the free resources too. In fact, I believe they are all contributed by teachers and reviewed by experts!

I'm a parent and find Curriki very useful in giving my kids homework help outside the classroom. For example, my son was having trouble with his chemistry class and Curriki offers many resources (including Khan videos) that further explain math and science concepts. I'm amazed at the creative & entertaining resources that can be found on Curriki - just saw a rap video teaching cell biology!

I love a lot of things about Curriki. A few years ago, as a teacher and pro-bono curriculum developer, I researched all the major players in Open Education Resources and decided to invest my personal time into adding content to Curriki. That the site is still functional and growing is significant, because user adoption is critical to its impact. I am reserving the last star on my rating, however, because the site (recently redesigned and improved in many ways) still has significant bugs and poor support.

This non-profit is an outstanding example of maximizing use of resources. Many non-profits in the Edu space do a little with a lot of money. These guys are a small team on a limited budget with >9 million visitors, over 50K learning resources, and is roughly 50% international. One of the best examples of "few to many" on the web. Many "for pay" edu sites, "use" Curriki's content without paying.

My name is Paula, and I’m the mother of 2 children of 5 and 8.This year we decided to start with education at home, it has been a challenging experience but rewarding at the same time. Here in Chile, there are no educational materials for use at home, so one must create material for each child. It is difficult, if you do not have professional guidance. I got myself educational plans and started looking on the internet to help my children and found Curriki. Curriki has been of great help with my children for school because there is a structure to lesson plans and class material is available to them.

As we approach the 42nd birthday of Carobell Inc. , I think it is a good time to reflect on how and why it has grown from a dream to one of the top Care Facilities in the United States.
It all started in July 1969 , with two very courageous woman, Virginia Franks and Elizabeth Bell Midgett.. They saw a need and courageously opened their hearts and homes to severely developmentally delayed and medically fragile infants. They provided love and compassion that made these children grow and blossom, many outliving doctor's expectations!
Even though we changed Presidents in 1991, Vanessa Ervin continues to make Carobell,. a family environment and a place the individuals can call home. She inherited the founders vision and enhanced it with out of the box thinking, good leadership, wise financial planning, and a top notched staff. Mrs. Ervin expects excellence from everyone.
She expects the best, she gets the best, and therefore we are the BEST!
One area that makes Carobell unique is the cross training of jobs. This is an excellent strategy in case a person is out for an extended period of time, the company can still function. Another great idea is promotions within the company, this not only encourages individual growth and self enrichment, but it also helps with longevity of our staff. However; I think the main reason for it’s success is because Mrs. Ervin believes in everyone. She believes everyone has potential; from the consumers, to her staff and even me!
When I was asked to serve on the board I questioned why would she want me? I definitely didn't have a financial or business background, but she saw a potential in me that I didn't see. I have an MED background and learned about special needs from the trenches, you could say, because I am a parent of an individual that resides at Carobel. Over the years, I have grown and learned so much since I have been a member of the board. I also see how hard it is to keep an organization like Carobell going on a everyday basis. I know it is hard work, but yet every time I visit I always see such happy faces. Like a family, everyone helps one another and even the smallest accomplishments are recognized. Carobell portrays a beautiful , happy, family environment. Onlookers know that the individuals are well cared for and most importantly loved. We only hire the folks that portray self-less attitudes, are intelligent, and very caring and loving
It saddens me to think that there are still people who are not aware of this wonderful organization. Part of my job is to spread the word. I do so through news articles, and letters to different organizations, internet, and of course the best way is word of mouth. Carobell works too hard to be the “Best Kept Secret in Jacksonville, Hubert, and Moorehead City!!” For more information you can go to www.carobell.org

Sincerely,
Kathleen McMillan

Curriki is a revolution. It is changing how we teach and learn while directly addressing issues of access and equity. Specifically, Curriki enables educators build and share the best Open Educational Resources from around the world, and build communities of practice to help them use and improve those materials. Throw away the textbook and join a community of teachers and learners sharing knowledge and experience openly, and for free.

For a mother or parent, a teacher or student, or even a school administrator, the benefits are great and the costs are time and passion.
