  • Inspire, Showcase Innovation and Amplify the Work of Depth TeachersLearning Activities can be uploaded by anyone, put in a queue, and are then approved for display on the Partners in Learning Network. Through the form, educators describe, tag and upload any files associated with the learning activity. Educators can ask questions, comment, download and share the activity with others. Examples include Forum VCTs, the Digital Literacy Curriculum, lesson plans, etc. Beneath the Network lies a rich meta data tagging architecture that enables the Network to surface these activities in a gallery as well as in other areas of the site. For example, in the Games Based Learning Hot Topic, we can surface a link, “See Games Based Learning Activities” and upon clicking, the member sees a list of learning activities that were tagged with “Kodu” and/or “games based learning.”
