Chapter/Locale: North America
Group Pages

Welcome to the A4L North American Community!

The North American Community collaboration area has been developed to provide an introduction to the A4L Community, who are working collectively to address some of the most pressing issues facing educational data access and utilization. It is the place where new, smaller sub-communities of the larger A4L Community (globally) can develop on an as-needed basis as we collectively address the growing need for quality data interoperability in our locales.

The online community allows A4L Community members/groups to connect, learn from each other as well as share their thoughts knowledge, insights, success and challenges. The A4L Community promotes collaboration, information exchange, the sharing of effective practices and supportive resources across the boundaries of time, distance, and organizational hierarchies.

Within the North American Community structure, Community Members have initiated working groups on several topics including Special Ed/IEP, Assessment, and Gradebook 'pass back'.

 

 

If you are not already a member of the A4L Community, but would like to stay in touch with developments in this locale, please consider 'joining' this group.  To do so, just click here to register for a guest account.  Once your application has been approved, come back to this page and click on the 'Join Group' button at the top of the page.

Feel free to get involved in our Open Forum if you have any questions!

wrote on the Chapter/Locale: North America wall: One of the challenges we are facing is categorizing apps. For example, something like twitter. It allows for private data to be entered but does not require it. How do you categorize something like that?
