Teaching & Learning: Ideas & Innovations 2014 is an online festival of professional learning featuring over two dozen free workshops by Share My Lesson’s content partners, educational leaders, and expert teachers.

Held in the afternoons and evenings of March 11-13, 2014, you’ll simply log into your computer to attend these free events. There is no travel, lost class time, or any cost.

The keynote speaker is AFT President Randi Weingarten, who kicks off the conference at 6:00pm EST on Tues., March 11th with her message on Reclaiming the Promise of Public Education.

Share My Lesson is a place where educators can come together to create and share their very best teaching resources. Developed by teachers for teachers, this free platform gives access to high-quality teaching resources and provides an online community where teachers can collaborate with, encourage and inspire each other.

Share My Lesson has a significant resource bank for Common Core State Standards, covering all aspects of the standards, from advice and guides to help with dedicated resources that support the standards.

Share My Lesson was developed by the American Federation of Teachers and TES Connect, the largest network of teachers in the world.
