iTeach-CareerTech: A Wiki for Sharing Resources and Best Practices in CTE

A wiki is a website that allows anyone to add, delete, or revise content by using a web browser.

After hosting countless meetings over the years, I have always been amazed at the professionalism of our CareerTech instructors and their willingness to share resources and best practices when they get together.

I began thinking that it was really a shame that sharing only took place at random meetings and that it couldn't be accomplished on a daily basis.

This is when I had the thought that we should start a wiki that would allow anyone with interest in career and technical education to share resources in real time. Simply copy and paste your links or add your thoughts and then instructors won't need to wait on a "per chance" meeting to share ideas.

The more people share, the less time individual instructors will need to spend searching on their own for resources and best practices.

I hope you will join iTeach-CareerTech and help us grow the wiki into an incredible resource for CTE!
