It’s funny — just a few weeks ago I blogged about how teachers sometimes have trouble sharing good ideas and asked teachers to share them on our blog.

Well, the California Department of Education just one-upped us! Although I have to say, maybe we could’ve helped them come up with a snappier title. The department is launching a new website, Brokers of Expertise, where teachers can share strategies that work in their classrooms. State Superintendent Jack O’Connell likened it to “Facebook for teachers.”

Teachers can search for methods that work with specific types of students and for specific subjects. They can also share videos, links, pictures and documents and form online groups with teachers across the state. Intrigued? Check it out for yourself!
