Alaska’s Professional Learning Network

Join a free professional online learning network for Alaska’s teachers.  We’ve partnered with the Alaska Department of Education and the Teaching Channel to offer an online space to support professional growth for teachers around the state. The Alaska Professional Learning Network (AkPLN) is provided for Alaskan educators at no cost through ASDN/ACSA with support of Title IIA, federal funds.

What is it?

AkPLN is a private collaboration space for teachers, schools districts and education organizations. It has a library of engaging professional learning resources for educators to use as they implement the new ELA and Math Standards, and design professional development at the district, school and classroom level.

Try it

Check out some of the video resources available on Teaching Channel, and then contact us to join the ASDN team site.   Members of the team site have access to view resources, and join or create school, district or statewide groups.  Gain ideas for lessons, view new teaching strategies to try out, or build your repertoire of techniques related to curriculum, instruction and assessment. Groups and discussions can be private among educators you invite or public for everyone in the state. Participants can upload and share videos to group members on the Teams Site with the Tch App.

Learning Pathways

We have 60 Learning Pathways that provide opportunities for in-depth study of the Alaska ELA and Math standards as well as effective instructional strategies. These Learning Plans are homegrown and designed specifically for Alaskan educators. Each plan is like a mini-course on a particular topic. They are available 24/7, so you can work without committing to a set schedule.
