What is CGC?
The Common Ground Collaborative (CGC) is a global, non-profit network of educators, schools and social entrepreneurs. We see learning as the key human capacity and are committed to building that capacity in ways that are simple, smart and sustainable. The CGC is all about:
1. A Connected Curriculum
The Common Ground Curriculum is a coherent, globally-relevant framework that defines, designs, delivers and demonstrates learning in powerful, innovative and accessible ways. Find out more.
2. A Connected School
The Total School Toolkit is a systemic set of tools that enables a school to align all of its work around learning. The toolkit includes an Evolutionary Continuum flexible guides to what good looks like in every aspect of our work from designing learning spaces, to designing radically different approaches to professional learning. The toolkit supports the shift from working in silos to thinking in systems, massively improving the ‘energy input: learning output’ ratio in our schools. Find out more.
3. A Connected Conversation
The Common Ground Collaborative is an extended, connected conversation about all aspects of learning. This conversation is among practitioners from a range of fields, all of whom see conversation as our best tool for making sense of our world and our work. The conversation is conducted in a language that is frank, fearless, frequently funny - at least we think so! If you speak the same language, then consider yourself invited. Find out more.
