PLN Collaborative Document
Want to build your Personal Learning Network (PLN)? Want to connect to other educators in Indiana and beyond? If you answered 'yes' to these questions, then post your information on the eDESK PLN Collaborative Document. Our goal is to bring together educators, counselors, administrators, and technology leaders who are interested in building ongoing collaboration that is focused on student learning. We can all learn from one another, so let the collaboration begin!
Symbaloo Webmix of eDESK Resources
Please visit our eDESK Symbaloo Webmix of resources to use in your classroom. Just click on the graphic or the link above to access. We update frequently with new sites, so check back often. This is a great site to set as your homepage or build one for your parents with all the important websites the students need to access throughout the year. If you build a Webmix, please let us know so we can showcase it on our blog!
Visit our Pinterest boards for links on many topics such as digital citizenship, PBL tools, social media, 1:1, PD resources, and many more. These boards are updated frequently, so check back often. If you pin to an educational board on Pinterest, we would love to hear from you and promote it through eDESK so other educators can connect with and learn from you. Another Pinterest board to follow is Indiana eLearning through the Indiana Department of Education. They have so many great resources for educators.
Visit our bitly site to find more resources for eDESK. We are just building these resources and if you would like to help us curate content for teachers and share other resources, we would love to hear from you.

All of these details help viewers watch more, and learn more. TeachIndy.com wants to link you only to relevant content, that will help you better engage our community of educators. A teacher blog page has been added to provide an outlet for teacher created and media related information.
