Resource sharing site launched for educators
Reuse4education.com is a free online platform for educators to swap, buy, sell, donate or borrow equipment and resources
Reuse4education has launched a dedicated website for educators to buy, sell, swap and donate resources and equipment for their institutions.
The website comes as budgets in education are increasingly tightened.
Sustainable approaches to edtech are already popular in the form of purchasing used and refurbished equipment, but this new platform will allow educators to connect directly with one another.

Eighty education institutions including universities, colleges and schools are already signed up to the platform as part of a trial in February, and registration is currently free.
One teacher told Reuse4education: “As a science teacher in an 11–16 secondary school, I often find myself wanting pieces of equipment for lessons that wouldn’t justify the cost of only being used once a year. I love the idea of sharing such equipment between schools and allowing the students to access even better resources for their learning.”
Reuse4education also provides registrants with a weekly email, listing resources that are currently on offer.
