Join our open Slack community

In this time of uncertainty and school closures, we’ve received questions about how to provide special education services and how to support diverse learners more generally via remote instruction.  We created this forum to encourage sharing of ideas and curriculum, as well as to ask questions and get feedback from other educators.

Please refrain from posting confidential student information, promoting products/sales, spam or language that is disrespectful, rude, irrelevant, or repetitive in nature.

Why are we doing this?

We believe that collaboration, communication, and sharing is the key to effective practice.  For most of us, remotely supporting our kids is a new process and while there are many resources out there, wading through them and figuring how to use them well, especially for diverse learners, takes a substantial amount of time.  This forum is an open opportunity to discuss those challenges and share what we know.

What is Slack?  

Slack is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face.

How do I make the most of this resource?

This community is only effective if we all share openly and freely.  Please don’t be afraid to ask questions, share ideas, and engage.  The open channel is a new forum for ABC and we want to make it a worthwhile venue during this time of uncertainty.  Join us in supporting each other.

The exciting thing about Slack is that everyone in the community is in control.  Feel free to make new channels for specific topics you want to discuss or invite your colleagues to join.  This is your space to connect.
