New online portal for teachers
Teachers in the USA will soon be able to gain access to over 100,000 different learning resources for lesson plans through a new online portal.
The portal, called Share My Lesson, aims to give teachers free use of various different materials for their lesson plans. It’s hoped that Share My Lesson will not only give teachers a chance to get materials for their lessons but it also feature other networking opportunities such as reviewing a lesson plan and discussing new teaching methods.
The creators of the project believe that the new online portal will help teachers explore topics further and get access to previously unreachable materials. Randi Newgarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, told Associated Press that the new portal will allow teachers to “find a way to access information quickly, actively and share it with each other.”
Share My Lesson will initially launch in August at the start of the new American academic year.
