On Tuesday, May 10th, Echo's Teacher and Admin apps will get a new item listed in the main navigation menu. The NTN Member Resources tool manages who can access New Tech Network's digital resources based on the school's contract.
The NTN Member Resources tool:
- Provides links to NTN's digital services including the NTN Help & Learning Center, the NTN Project Library, and the NTN Slack Community.
- Displays NTN membership contract information and end date.
- Allows schools to easily allocate their membership licenses to the appropriate staff members.

There is no immediate action required of you. The NTN Platform team has done their best to identify those individuals who are active in our network and given them membership status. This should prevent any individual from losing access to resources they already use. But, as staff transition in and out of your school, keeping your membership up-to-date will be important. Here's how you can get started:
Review Current Contract and Memberships
Log into Echo and access the NTN Member Resources tool. On the Member Management tab, review your current contract information and licenses. Also review the current list of staff and adjust membership allocation as needed. In some cases, your school will have already met or exceeded your membership licenses. This will require you to remove existing memberships before you can add any new ones.
Note: The NTN Member Resources tool lists all active Echo accounts that have their Echo User Type set to Staff. If a staff member is missing from the list, check to see that their Echo account is configured correctly. Even if you are not using Echo with students, all members of NTN get an Echo account to access our training materials, Project Library, and other resources.
Adding New Staff
As new staff are hired, be sure to use the NTN Member Resources management pages to identify them as members of NTN. This will ensure new staff have full access to NTN's resources. Without being allocated a license, your staff will not have access to content such as the NTN Help & Learning Center or the NTN Slack Community.
