Teacher conference

For the past year Make it Open has been working on a series of information packs, that as one of the authors states, "is designed to speak to new entrants as well as those who have experience with Open Schooling". These packs are there to provide clarity on open schooling and how schools can begin to open up and work with the community on local community-based problems. If you as a science centre, museum or informal learning organisation want to look for more ways to encourage schools to work with you and "open up" more, these packs might be a good starting point for you too.
