    I love using Edmodo Communities for gathering ideas and asking questions. Of course, the DE Blogs are great for unlimited ideas from talented and creative educators. In person events like DENSI are AMAZING for sharing ideas and discussing the latest topics in education. DE webinars are always inspiring, and if you miss one, most of them are archived for later viewing.

    Well, there are so many resources out there for teachers which makes me happy. It’s good to know that there’s such support for teachers!
    Schoology is a great tool. It’s a community of educators supporting one another. I’ve always found inspirations, tools, and ideas to help with anything-all you have to do is ask. Schoology is not unlike my beloved DEN family! Thank you for sharing.
