How might we identify and celebrate businesses that innovate for world benefit – and inspire other companies to do the same? Imagine a world of nine billion people with clean water, quality food, affordable housing and education, top-tier medical care, ubiquitous clean energy, dignified opportunity, thriving economies, and global peace and security.

One very useful tool for all educators is the Open Courseware Consortium search engine that allows users to search for Open Education Resources (OER) at the university level easily. If you are a K-12 educator or parent, here is a very useful search engine for K-12 OER materials . Easily is the key because frequently resources that seem to be open are not Creative Commons licensed and cannot remixed or shared. Thus, a teacher can use the resource but not modify it to meet their individual student needs or share it. Easily also means you can find them easily.
