CR Education Site Update

This summer (2017)  CREducation has received an update bringing us onto a new platform. After more than 10 years on the prior one, we were due!

World with Mobile devices

We’ve tried to bring over all the good content you’ve come to expect, as well as incrementally adding some new features. One new feature of special interest to teachers is the ability to access our collection of classroom learning activity suggestions that appeared in our popular wall calendars.

We’re also working on an online calendar populated with the birthdays of prominent peacemakers and various county days and UN observances. Some additional data will be added over time.

We’ve also attempted to eliminate the need for the Flash plugin and made the site more mobile device friendly. We hope you like it.

In any case, thanks for your interest in Conflict Resolution in Education!

Regards,

Bill Warters – CREducation Webmaster
