Joining a Digital Learning Community (DLC) unites others despite distance, develops respect for new perspectives and ideas, and provides a secure place to learn and work on trustworthy collaborative and social platforms. DLCs provide opportunities for participates to work and learn from others with similar interests.
In the resources section (below), I've provided a few digital learning communities of which I belong. National Council of Teachers of Mathematics provides a great, reliable membership that allows teachers to collaborate and share mathematics insights, strategies, and resources. Scholastic is a great platform for resources and student learning activities. These are resources that greatly help with my focus on mathematics education. I've included Ed Web which is a great resource for educators to take PD courses in all areas of education. I've also included some other websites I've learned about in my research. IMLS has a great downloadable digital book called, "Building Digital Communities: A Framework for Action."
In addition, I use social media to communicate, share, and collaborate with educators, parents, and teachers. See my share buttons in my footer. Students enjoy platforms in which they can communicate and collaborate in visual ways. My students use Google Classroom for this purpose.
