Collaboration in Common

Information regarding Collaboration in Common, an online professional learning community and resource exchange platform.

Background

The California Way builds on a collaborative team approach to positive education change. To support this effort, the California Department of Education (CDE), the Californians Dedicated to Education Foundation, and the Palo Alto-based technology company Declara, Inc. partnered to develop CiC. CiC is an online professional learning community and resource exchange platform for all California educators. CiC allows teachers to discover and share resources and to connect with educators from across the state in virtual communities focused on the topics that matter most for teaching and learning.

CiC builds upon the CDE's participation in the federal #GoOpen campaign, which encouraged states and school districts to share open educational resources and materials without cost and without violating copyright laws. By participating in this campaign, CiC houses the resources from the National Learning Registry, as well as those shared by California educators and CiC partner organizations. There are nearly 1,000 collections of resources and over 200,000 resources. More importantly, CiC connects educators with California’s most valuable education resource: other educators. CiC users have created over 500 public and private teams. We encourage you to explore the platform by visiting the CiC Web site External link opens in new window or tab..

Join the growing number of educators and professional educational organizations that are utilizing CiC to help support the development of formal professional learning communities and networks.
