Welcome to the Education Communities

Connecting educators internationally to share, build and find research and evidence about effective educational practice.

Welcome to Ed Comms an open professional platform for Educators.

Online communities support global partnerships, co-research and collaboration. New communities can be quickly set up From 1 January 2015 we will be using the Public Sector Knowledge Hub To join, register and create a profile so that others can find you via your expertise/interests. Some communities are public and some are private: community facilitators decide membership.

Ed Comms is provided by the Education Futures Collaboration (EFC - see Founding Members below). EFC Projects include MESH Guides, a transformative knowledge tool, publishing research-informed diagnostic and intervention strategies, created by R&D groups supported by this community platform.

Visit the Education Futures Collaboration Community for more information and join a R&D Community (see list below) to be involved in high quality research and development relevant to educational practice. See the ICET-UNESCO Education First Catalytic Community for a world view on translational research.

Contact Enquiries for further information.
