Welcome to Know New Ideas, a new form of connected learning. Here at Knovation, we are excited to help educators create information and engage in 21st century learning experiences as a model for how to deliver on the promise of personalized learning in classrooms across the nation.
Connecting and learning in communities of practice is highly recommended by the United States Department of Education for all educators and is becoming more readily accepted by the educator community as a key driver for digital transformations at the classroom, school and district levels.

To other educators — opportunities to connect are endless in this community – add to what you know by adding to who you know
Utilize the Invite feature in the Welcome box to reach out to your colleagues. The more we harness the experience of educators the more we can impact and see change. Honor your educator friends by encouraging them to share their wisdom through participation in the ongoing dialog.
An important part of becoming a connected, more effective and more relevant educator is having a safe, educator only area to focus on connecting to other educators. Our community offers the ability to become friends with other educators and ensure that you aren't having to weed through non-educator contacts or seperate your personal contacts from the conversations like other networks.
Did we mention our team is eager to share? Each Knovation team member is a community member and can be added to your learning network, to message directly or to participate in conversations with you and other educators. We can't wait to collaborate with you!
