Blackboard at ISTE 2013

Sharing is Good

It's an old concept: sharing is good. We teach it to our kids and our students all the time. But sometimes it gets lost in the midst of hectic schedules, administrative responsibilities, managing classrooms and keeping up with constantly changing standards and guidelines—oh, and teaching.

What's needed are easier, more efficient ways to share the important things that make teaching and learning better. That's everything from tips on innovative teaching techniques and technology to maintaining security and keeping kids safe from bullying. Blackboard has quite a few ideas on how to do all of that. We'd love to share them with you.
