    Could you please consider making your “Features” articles in PDF and/or able to be saved? There are great articles here that we (as parents of an ADHD child) would like to share with his school so that they are hearing this important information from other educators.

    Thank you

    I really enjoyed using one of your resources in my classroom the past few years and I went to access it the other day and it wouldn’t load. Could you tell me if the Interactive Brain Map (http://www.opencolleges.edu.au/informed/learning-strategies/) is still available? It just went to the homepage and stayed at 0% and would not load. Thanks!

    Hello Sarah Braggs,

    Curriculum Services Canada is working with a university in Uruguay to provide a workshop on High Yield Strategies and Assessment for Learning. We are interested in your article entitled 25 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset.

    We are asking your permission to share this article with a group of 50 teachers at this university.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards-

    Deirdre Kinsella Biss

    We are interested in using the 25 ways to develop a growth mindset article by Saga Briggs for a leadership course we are rolling out at our company? How would I get permission to use this article in our course? Is that article translated? If not, how would I get permission to translate?
