Knowledge Building International

KBI is a membership-based association of educators working across sectors and across borders to extend the realm of the possible in education. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Knowledge Building in education or more generally in knowledge creation for public good. Membership is especially urged for educators, researchers, technology developers, and policy-makers who want to help turn 21st-century education into education for innovation and knowledge building. Through partnerships we will advance Knowledge Building theory, practices and technology to meet our shared goals and to secure grants and sponsorships.
