Authors, illustrators, teachers, students- WE NEED YOU!
Help give back, create material for a cause, and have your work read by and help millions of kids worldwide.
We aim to create material that demonstrates an important cause or call to action, or contributes to OER creative commons material for school use. We also aim to raise funds for literacy, education, or child welfare groups.
Project 1 – K12 Free School Textbooks Project
In this project we aim to either collate or create as many helpful K12 resources as possible, to share in creative commons. Progress in this project, that is all the collated resources, are shared on our School Textbooks page where you can see free open education resources for Grades K to 12.
Project 2 – Books For A Cause
This project aims to create books that support and create awareness for important causes, for example, climate change, endangered species, child welfare and many others.
