How can my school or district
become a member?

“EdLeader21 is thrilled to be partnering with Amazon Inspire as a platform for our Performance Task Bank. EdLeader21 members, who include district and school leaders from across the country, are contributing hundreds of engaging tasks to this bank which will support all educators with teaching critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity - known as the 4Cs. We are delighted to be joining forces with Amazon in this way to support 21st century learning.”
