Sharing is fundamental to teaching and learning. In Yukon Public Schools, we believe lesson plans created by our teachers should be shared openly on the public Internet for anyone to copy, remix, and reuse. Creativity thrives in a culture of sharing and collaboration. We support all three.
Please copy, remix, and use the lesson plans linked from this site! Officially:

Description: This keynote looks at the new obligation of sharing for educators. With stories from the a variety of sources, the fact that we now have the ability to teach and share beyond our classrooms is moving from “nice to do” to “necessary to do”. See if you agree.
