This webinar will introduce TEF’s twelve principles. Then it will focus on the work of TEF-US which is building a network of K-20 demonstration sites. It is also developing an online community where people share their resources, stories and inspiration. In the webinar, you will learn about this new network, see examples of demonstration programs, and gain opportunities to contribute your stories.
