Introducing IncitED: The Crowdfunding Community for Education

IncitED is the crowdfunding community for education where teachers and education supporters can fund, share, and replicate important education initiatives worldwide. Visit IncitED at http://www.incited.org.

Like us on Facebook to get regular updates about how we’re supporting the work of educators: https://www.facebook.com/IncitEDTheCrowdfundingCommunityForEducation.

During the last week of April, we’ll be launching two exciting campaigns: Open Road Learning Community for Teens and Imagining Learning.

Open Road is a replication of North Star Self-Directed Learning for Teens that’s opening in Portland, Oregon, and is already accepting students. Follow their progress on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/OpenRoadTeens.

Imagining Learning is a grassroots initiative to collect the voices of young people as they discuss what they want for their education. Each Imagining Learning Listening Session produces beautiful art as students create their visions for the future of education. Follow their progress on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/imagininglearning.
