(Last Updated On: September 12, 2014)

INTERFACE - Issue 58, Sep 2014 - Pond, less time planning, more time on the important stuff, teaching_001When N4L asked teachers what they need the most, their answer was “more time”. Time to plan, to be inspired to inspire and, most importantly, time to teach and engage with their students. Pond helps teachers save time planning while being inspired by what other teachers are doing.

Over 1300 educators are now in Pond and this number is constantly growing with Pond ever expanding. That means 1300 teachers from up and down the country can share and recommend resources – no more reinventing the wheel.
