Connecting Communities of Practice in the Public Sector with Drupal

Connecting Communities of Practice in the Public Sector with Drupal

The 2010 National Education Technology Plan demonstrates the importance of educators becoming more connected to resources, tools, colleagues, experts, and learning activities both within and beyond schools. Educators are using online communities of practice to make these connections and facilitate their professional development. Acquia Commons has proven to be the ideal solution for this initiative because it delivers an inexpensive, highly flexible and scalable environment to meet the needs of these constituents.

And as a result how they are improving teacher and leader effectiveness, enhancing student learning and increasing overall productivity.

Attendees will learn:

  • Tips for minimizing IT resources with Acquia Commons
  • Techniques for fostering a successful community
  • How to apply this other public sector community projects
