Some of our best resources are our readers!

One of the biggest shocks we as editors have every year, thanks to the results of our annual Readership Survey, is that many people ask for resources we already have on our site. Our site houses so many resources that users may not always find the resources they need on the first try.

To help readers, educators, and education stakeholders become better acquainted with some of the most valuable resources on eSchool News, we have compiled a list of the 10 best and most comprehensive microsites and pages found on our website.

And to our office’s grudging delight, we also thought we’d take the time to introduce you to some of the people who run eSchool News—be sure to check out the photos with each resource!

So without further ado, here are the top 10 resources on eSchool News (some are old, some are new, but every one is a ‘must’):

1.Zmags digital publication

It’s not always possible to catch every story on our site every day; we know you’re busy–after all, you’re in education! That’s why in an effort to not only help readers read every breaking story in the past month, but also reduce our publication’s carbon footprint, we began our eSchool News digital edition.

The digital edition is free, and we’ve taken some cutting-edge design steps to make the online reading experience as pain-free and resource-filled as it can be.

New features include easier navigability, better interactivity (think one-click story-related videos), and better readability.

You can find our Zmags by clicking here, or by going to the top of the eSchool News home page and then clicking on the big blue ‘Publications’ tab on our main navigation bar

2.Best Practices

The one suggestion we received the most from readers in our Readership Survey was that they’d like to see best practices. Best practices, say readers, help provide key advice and tips for the education community and can help put critical reform and implementation efforts to scale.

From hybrid class success to closing math gaps, our Best Practices section can be a helpful resource for your school, district, or state.

You can find our Best Practices section by clicking here, or by going to our home page, scrolling over the ‘Publications’ tab on our main navigation bar, then clicking ‘Best Practices.’
