THANK YOU to all of the educators, support staff, and host institutions for making this year’s Better Together: California Teachers Summit so powerful! We hope you left feeling energized and motivated, and want to remind you that the learning and community support didn’t end at the Summit. We will be hosting and highlighting online and in person events throughout the year. Here are some ways to stay engaged:

The first Monday of every month at 7 pm, we’ll hold a #BetterTogetherCA Twitter chat focusing on timely topics, so be sure to bookmark our Events Page and save those Monday nights.

We have launched a private community on Collaboration In Common (CiC), a professional learning and collaboration platform for California educators. The platform will enable you to share, annotate, and engage in conversation around ideas and resources, and can be organized by subject or topic to narrow the focus of your conversation. We will also be posting key pieces of content from the 35 Summit sites and support you in discovering new resources, teams, and discussions related to topics you care about. Join our community on Collaboration In Common.

Finally, we need YOU to guide the conversation, provide leadership, mentor newer participants, and foster the supportive community necessary to achieve all of our goals. Connect with us on Twitter and Facebook, and if you would like to take a leadership role in the community, please reach out via DM on Twitter, Direct Message on Facebook or email to Emily at

Such an amazing experience to be around influential & innovative educators at the Better Together Teacher Summit! #BetterTogetherCA

I think the events were a huge success. An essential of the Summit is participating in discussions to help us all get #BetterTogetherCA.

After #BetterTogetherCA yesterday I see how hungry our pre-service Ts are for help/support. Now how to get involved is the big question.

Ari Flewelling, 2017 Summit Attendee

Met some wonderful Ts at #BetterTogetherCA yesterday. Many were just beginning to get student devices in their classrooms…
