Alaska’s Professional Learning Network

Join a free professional 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?

A private collaboration space for teachers, schools districts and education organizations. It has a library of engaging online 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.

What can I do there?

Watch award-winning videos of effective teaching practices that can be searched /filtered by subject area, grade level, or topical area.  Gain ideas for lessons, view new teaching strategies to try out, or build your repertoire of techniques related to curriculum, instruction and assessment.

Create or join groups to connect with other teachers.  Start private or public discussion groups so teachers, administrators, and coaches  can share and reflect on their practice. Participants can upload and share videos to group members on the Teams Site with the Tch App.

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.  Groups and discussions can be private among educators you invite or public for everyone in the state.
