This post was created by a member of Edutopia's community. If you have your own #eduawesome tips, strategies, and ideas for improving education, share them with us.
Through the Global Education Challenge, we hope to find truly original ideas that can become tangible tools to improve student outcomes across the globe--both inside and outside the classroom. We're building a community of innovators who share our goal, and together we'll discuss ideas for groundbreaking solutions to help transform student learning, foster family engagement, and enhance teacher effectiveness. We'll be giving away $250,000 in cash and prizes to the best ideas. Entries will be accepted from Thursday, May 19 through Friday, July 15th, 2011.
