New Section: Curriculum and the Community

In 2016 we co-ran an #edchat to explore community engagement and curriculum design. This section captures the thoughts and responses from this chat to further help schools to connect and collaborate with their communities when designing their local curriculum. It includes seven Q&A posts which offer teacher voice, schools stories, reflective questions, and links to further conversations and support.
