CDE Launches California Educators Together, a “One-Stop-Shop” for Teacher Collaboration
The California Department of Education has unveiled a new tool for teachers across the state to connect with one another and exchange content, resources, strategies, and supports.
The online platform is called California Educators Together. It was created with help from the Californians Dedicated to Education Foundation.
When a teacher joins California Educators Together, the site organizes them in relation to their job assignment and roles and places them within their education agency (site/district/county). A personalized dashboard based on this profile helps users see communication from teams and their selected subject and grade level groups. Users can share lesson plans, curriculum, and other resources with each other in addition to accessing resources for such topics as literacy and mental health and event updates from their respective school districts.
The platform is designed to be a “one-stop shop” for teachers, said Barbara Murchison, Director of the CDE Educator Excellence and Equity Division.
