The Community tool allows staff to connect with and collaborate with others within New Tech Network. Want to find out what projects other teachers in a common subject area or grade level are doing? Use the search feature to find them and open their courses. It is even possible to copy their curriculum to your own course.

Before exploring The Community Tool, share your profile.
To get the most out of the community tool, each user needs to share their profile. This will allow connections to be made and collaboration to happen.
From the homepage click the "menu" icon located in the top toolbar.
Click on "Community."
Click on the "My Profile" tab.
Check the box that says, "include my profile in the community."
The Community Tool
There are three tabs in the community tool:
- My Community
- My Library
Note: The NTN Resource Library has moved to the Main Menu.
The "my community" tab acts as a personal dashboard. It is where one can quickly find the resources and profiles that have been bookmarked.
Under the 'My Library" tab, are the projects and activities that have been shared by the user to the library or that have been saved to "My Library" while searching the community or profiles.
Items that have been saved to "My Library" also show up on the right side of the screen when in edit mode. Easily drag and drop items into a project.
