The aftermath of the global pandemic has had severe implications across school districts worldwide. As emergency funding becomes depleted, school districts are looking for cost-effective solutions to foster equity throughout their schools while continuing to improve student outcomes and well-being.
When it comes to teaching resources, districts are often looking for diversified, effective and modern resources that best support their learners. The resources are out there but until now have been scattered across the web or have been presented to districts with large price tags.
Cube For Teachers is a free global education sharing network fostering equity for all.
CUBE unites educators across the globe to share, support, and inspire through the sharing of discovered and created open educational resources. The open sharing of valuable resources results in an incredibly diverse collection of professionally crowdsourced resources at the fingertips of every educator worldwide - fostering equity to ultimately improve student outcomes and well-being.
Educators share links to free and open resources on CUBE. With now over 113,000 resources and a collaborative space for more than 35,000 users, CUBE has come an educator’s free, one-stop solution for free and open teaching resources.
