“I love learning from other teachers. I wonder if there’s a space to find teachers willing to share?”
“I wish there was a YouTube channel focused on the needs of Indiana teachers!”
“I’d love a free place to get PGP points on topics I’m interested in when I need whenever I am!”
The Keep Indiana Learning Engagement Center and YouTube channel are the answers!
The Engagement Center has over 175 videos created BY educators FOR educators. The page has numerous sort & filter features to allow you to quickly find videos in areas of interest (demo). As you’re exploring all the options, you can click the star icon to “favorite” the video; this will curate a list of videos you want to return to when the opportunity presents itself. Once you’ve selected a video, each presenter has shared their slides and additional resources to allow you to take your learning to the next level. Upon watching at least 85% of a video, you can download a personalized PGP certificate. What truly makes the Engagement Center shine is the fact you can reach out to any presenter directly simply by using the “Q&A” icon. PD that you want when you want with the presenter never more than an email away!
