GDCF Case Studies Help Share Inspiration in Education
The Global Digital Citizen Foundation works with a lot of educators in a lot of different countries. Teachers are passionate about making as positive an impact as possible on their students' futures. The work we've seen has been remarkable. So to celebrate their efforts, we've created the GDCF case studies to share what teachers and students are accomplishing with the Essential Fluencies.
We invite you to preview our ever-growing case studies series below. Become motivated by the great Fluencies projects students are bringing to life in these featured schools. Each one of the GDCF case studies is free to download.
